FIRE SALE IS A TERM DESCRIBING A THREE-STAGE CORDINATED ATTACK ON A COUNTRY'S TRANSPORTATION,TELCOMMUNICATION,FINANCIAL,AND UTILITIES INFRASTRUCTURE SYSTEMS. THE TERM FIRESALE IS USED BECAUSE "EVERYTHING IS DOWN". Is that Really Happen??
Yes, but not nearly as easy as the movie would like you to think. It would take a combined effort of top notch programers/hackers etc... and some help on the inside. The "Fire Sale" scenario has been around for a long time as a "What if". The actual chance of it happing is slim, however if the country continues in it's downward spiral we could face a New Age Revolution via Tech Wars.
Generally All the webserver uses cache , the reason behind using cache memory is to faster load the domain , if you are still confused let me explain .
When a client request for data or service that request goes to the server and the server response to the request the whole senario works like that but it took lot of time to process the request and its also affects to the reputation of the site owner , To overcome this Most of webserver uses the cache memory . So How the Cache Memory Works?
let's Understand this with an example suppose 'A' is a Client who send the request to the webserver 'B' But the request Go to the Cache memory & Respond to the user 'A' So it take less Time to Load the Page And the site works Faster .
Now What if There is a cache poisoning Vulnerability the attacker Can alter the Cache memory.
The Requester 'A' Will recive the data from Poisoned Cache That May leads To XSS,Phishing ,Unwanted URL redirection,etc...
I hope This Writup might help you to understand the Concept.
In a forgotten corner of Brisbane lies a little-known wonderland of creativity. Known as HackerSpace Brisbane, or HSBNE for short, the workshop's part of the nationwide hackerspace movement – inspiring community spaces where creatives and makers gather to fix, mend and upcycle broken down bits and bobs. At our most recent PepTalks event in Brisbane, HSBNE president Steph Piper wowed the crowd to win our one-minute Peppermint Pitch competition, and bagged $300 in the process. Head to the link in our profile to read about HSBNE’s positive impact – and find out how you could be in with a chance of winning a Peppermint Pitch at one of our upcoming PepTalks. 💚
