Description

An Internet attacker is someone whose only access to an application is via the Internet. They do not have an account or any relationship with the business.

They may try various approaches, including direct attacks, attacks on users of the system, email spamming, phishing, and more.

Internet attackers can be assumed to have a wide variety of skills and motivations. Surely there are some who have a high level of skill in attacking applications, significant time to search for vulnerabilities, and financial motivation to do so.
