Write short note on server-side attack and insider attack.

Server-side attack:

Server-side attacks are like sneaky intrusions where an outsider (the attacker) tries to mess with a server directly. The goal is to break into the server and mess with the data and programs it’s hosting. These attacks happen by exploiting weaknesses in the services the server is running, kind of like finding a crack in a wall to get inside a building.

Insider attacks:

On the other hand, insider attacks are when someone who already has access to a system decides to go rogue. This could be someone from within the organization, maybe a disgruntled employee or someone with a hidden agenda. Insiders have a leg up because they already have the keys to the kingdom – they know the system, the rules, and where the sensitive stuff is kept. It’s like a security guard turning into a thief.
