Anatomy of a Hacker Attack

Phase 5 - Stealing or Modifying Information

To steal or somehow modify information is probably the primary goal of the hacker. There are also instances of hooliganism, but they are less common. A professional hacker will probably have a goal other than destruction. Sometimes, he will break in to one network only to use it as a base from which to attack his next target, but sooner or later he will want something.

With the right privileges and ample information about the target, stealing information is usually a piece of cake.
