This category is for tagging common types of application automated threats.

What is an automated threat?

Threat events (an instance of something causing harm) to applications undertaken using automated actions. The focus is on abuse of functionality - misuse of inherent functionality and related design flaws, some of which are also referred to as business logic flaws. There is almost no focus on implementation bugs.

In the specific case of web applications, threat events to web applications undertaken using automated actions. And for this web application case, attacks that can be achieved without the web are not in scope.
