The Cyber-Security Glossary of Building Hacks and Cyber-Attacks was developed specifically to help facility and infrastructure engineers and building managers understand vulnerability of SCADA systems and building and industrial control systems to cyber-attack. The book includes definitions of technical terms related to automated equipment controls common to industry, utilities and buildings. Although written for facility engineers, much of the terminology applies to cyber-attacks in general. I define many types of cyber-attacks including:
Dictionary attack
Cinderella attack
Time Bomb attack
Fork Bomb attack
Logic Bomb attack
Bluesnarfing
Smurf attack
Vampire Tap
Water Holing
Pass the Hash attack
Tiny Fragment attack
Protocol Fuzzing attack
Replay attack
Amplification attack
Man in the Middle attack
and many more.

I also include steps to take to prevent a cyber-attack.
