I recently read about the distinction between generic vs targeted attacks, where generic attacks are ones where an attacker casts a wide net and makes a catch, while targeted attacks are those that hone in on an individual, group, or organization.
I was wondering if it would be OK to start a thread about this latter type of attack, inviting users to share their experiences. I was hesitant to post it initially, largely because the question I typed was flagged as subjective. However, after reading the guidelines, it seems like a legitimate question, because it would:
- inspire answers that explain “why” and “how”
- tend to have long, not short, answers
- invite sharing experiences over opinions
- are more than just mindless social fun
Perhaps there would be issues with citing facts and references, but I don't know if this would be a disqualifier for asking such a question. Please let me know if such a topic is out-of-bounds. It will not be posted unless someone gives me the green light.
