HasMemberStandard Attack PatternStandard Attack Pattern - A standard level attack pattern in CAPEC is focused on a specific methodology or technique used in an attack. It is often seen as a singular piece of a fully executed attack. A standard attack pattern is meant to provide sufficient details to understand the specific technique and how it attempts to accomplish a desired goal. A standard level attack pattern is a specific type of a more abstract meta level attack pattern.194Fake the Source of Data
+ Notes


It should be noted that the member relation to CAPEC-194 is not as clean as could be. CAPEC-194 would ideally have another child (other than CAPEC-543: Counterfeit Websites) that is specific to URL Redirection. Unlike CAPEC-543, URL Redirection does not require a counterfeit website, but rather the user to simply click a link. With that said, we have created this relationship to CAPEC-194 due to the related weakness (CWE-601), which specifically deals with URL Redirection, and will revist this at a later date.
