Great article. Didn't know that using these ways a hacker can pass through security.

Thank you Sarsa!
Certainly. lots of times I hear about "hacks" and sophisticated methods where the truth lies somewhat between; scans can be sophisticated and thought through, but eventually it's a way to figure out someone's password and use it to log in.
I guess the percentage of real sophistication, research and bypassing complex mechanisms is extremely low. And so when it comes to security we actually do have a lot to do to prevent the vast majority of vectores and leave very little attack surface.
