\"SECURITY\"in this contemporary scenarios has become a more sensible issue either it may be in the ―REAL WORLD‖ or in the ―CYBER WORLD‖. In the real world as opposed to the cyber world an attack is often preceded by information gathering. Movie gangsters ―case the joint‖; soldiers ―scout the area‖. This is also true in the cyber world.

However, fortunately, the antagonists reacted promptly and resurrected the Internet world from the brink of prostration.

Tersely quoting some security ditherers – Eavesdropping, Hacking, Hijacking, Mapping, Packet Sniffing, 1Spoofing, DoS & DDoS attacks, etc.
