Alter configurations

An attacker might also decide to alter system and device configurations in order to disrupt an organization. This could achieve a variety of goals:

  • Small and subtle alterations could cause malfunctions that create loss of usefullness and overload support groups with problems that don’t have obvious solutions.
  • Larger and more obvious alterations that cause serious problems.
  • Taking over control of systems and devices and locking the defenders out of them.
