2.Virus, Trojan: Viruses or Trojans are malicious software programs that get installed into the victim’s system and keep sending the victim’s data to the hacker.
3.Phishing: Phishing is a hacking technique using which a hacker replicates the most-accessed sites and traps the victim by sending that spoofed link.
4.Eavesdropping (Passive Attacks): Unlike other attacks that are active in nature, using a passive attack, a hacker can monitor the computer systems and networks to gain some unwanted information.
5.Fake WAP: Just for fun, a hacker can use software to fake a wireless access point. This WAP connects to the official public place WAP. Once you get connected to the fake WAP, a hacker can access your data, just like in the case above.
6.Waterhole attacks: If you are a big fan of Discovery or National Geographic channels, you could relate easily with the waterhole attacks. To poison a place, in this case, the hacker hits the most accessible physical point of the victim.
7.Denial of Service (DoS\DDoS): A Denial of Service attack is a hacking technique of taking down a site or server by flooding that site or server with a huge amount of traffic so that the server is unable to process all the requests in real-time and finally crashes down.
8.Keylogger:  A keylogger is a simple software that records the key sequence and strokes of your keyboard into a log file on your machine.
9.Cookie theft: The cookies in our browser store personal data such as browsing history, username, and passwords for different sites we access. Once the hacker gets access to your cookie, he can even authenticate himself as you on a browser. A popular method to carry out this attack is to manipulate a user’s IP packets to pass through attacker’s machine.
10. Bait and Switch: Using Bait and Switch hacking technique, an attacker can buy advertising spaces on the websites. The hacker can run a malicious program that the user believes to be authentic. This way, after installing the malicious program on your computer, the hacker gets unprivileged access to your computer.
