What is a Watering Hole Attack?

A watering hole attack is a cyber attack strategy where attackers compromise a website frequently visited by the intended target group. The goal is to infect that website with malware, intending to infect the devices of the website’s visitors.

This method relies on the trust users have in the compromised site, making it an effective way to breach the security of a specific group or organization. Watering hole attacks require vigilance in web browsing habits and robust security measures to prevent.
