Hackers attackProtect the operating system, as opposed to DBMS, it is much more difficult. The fact that the internal structure of modern operating systems are extremely complex, and therefore compliance with the adequate security policy is a much more difficult task. Among the people are of the opinion that the most effective attacks on operating Systems can be arranged only with the help of sophisticated tools based on the latest achievements of science and technology, and the attacker must be highly skilled programmer. This is not entirely true.

No one disputes the fact that the user should be aware of all the innovations in the field of computer technology. And the high qualification – not too much. However, art is not a hacker to break into any very “cool” computer security. You just need to be able to find a weak spot in a particular system of protection. In this case, the simplest methods of hacking are not worse than the most sophisticated, because the simpler algorithm of attack, the more likely it is completed without errors and crashes, especially where prior testing of this algorithm in conditions similar to “combat” are very limited.
