Write an academic report on a significant software security exploit you have studied. Your report should include details such as, for example:

  • The nature of the software vulnerability which led to the exploit
  • How the exploit was mounted and disseminated by the attacker(s)
  • Who were the victims and what motivated the attack
  • How it was discovered
  • How it was fixed
  • What was learned as a result of studying this kind of attack
  • What could have been done differently which could have avoided the vulnerability in the first place
  • What users could and should be doing to protect themselves¬†
  • Your thoughts on whether something like this could happen again somewhere else
