  • Attacking and hijacking a target's perimeter firewalls, which allows them to compromise the rest of the network.
  • Bypassing perimeter security and attacking devices with external network connections, via a man-in-the-middle attack.
  • After completing one of the above two scenarios, malicious actors can then further attack additional devices that only have internal network connections. In such an instance, the attackers could potentially take down an entire industrial facility and hold it for ransom.
