Server hacking

Server hacking is the deliberate targeting and unauthorised modification of a specific server and is usually committed by people illegally accessing the server, but can also be committed by people with lawful access to the server as well.

Server hacking attacks are usually aimed at business websites or databases in order to access, steal or delete personal or financial information, as well as attempt to take intellectual property.

Some server hacking attacks have resulted in large scale spam messaging to business contacts, with some attempting to divert payments from clients to alternative bank accounts.
