A Taxonomy of Cyber-attacks on Computer Networks

Abstract : Computer networks in the current state of the world have become an inevitability all around the world ever since it was put in motion. It has constantly gained users within businesses and organisations, and the users will tend to increase as more technology is invented. We need computer networks day-by-day, as it uses different computers within the same network to share files, resources and significant data. It is used within businesses and schools or could be part of the network which may be connected to the internet. When computer networks start growing as a whole, then the chances of cyber-attacks also starts to increase and the attack can happen when it is least expected. This is due to the fact that solutions aren't as effective as such. For example, resources, tools and framework cannot detect cyber-attacks that affect the organisation, before the attack is carried out [1]. Alongside this, when there is a large number of users on a specific network, then the network can become slow as it is sharing resources with more users, which could eventually lead it to shut down.
