What are the different stages of Hacker Chatter?

Created by Charley Downey, Modified on Fri, 22 Mar 2024 at 12:04 PM by Charley Downey

There are three stages of Hacker Chatter that we monitor.


Reconnaissance: Indications that a hacker is planning an attack, potentially weeks, months, or even years in advance.


Active: Instances where a hacker actively attempts an attack, which may include boasting about exploiting vulnerabilities or discussing the use of stolen credentials.


Post-Attack: Situations where a hacker has executed an attack, often publicising their success through evidence of system infiltration or data compromise.
