Kiddy script («schoolboys»)

Kiddy script («schoolboys») — these are beginners without serious experience and understanding of the essence of the actions performed, using ready-made tools and scripts that perform attacks on a publicly available scenario, which other researchers have worked on developing. Practice and experience show that most of the detected cybercrimes are committed by this type of attackers. This is probably due to several reasons: the level of competence of this category of attackers does not allow you to approach the attack scenario creatively, hiding your presence or modifying the tools used. Often, the attacks of attackers of this category are straightforward, easily detected and prevented by simple means of information protection. The main problem associated with this category of attackers is that beginners learn quickly and gradually grow into professionals.
