Asynchronous Attack
  • [An] asynchronous attack [. ] is an attempt to exploit the interval between a defensive act and the attack in order to render inoperative the effect of the defensive act. For instance, an operating task may be interrupted at once following the checking of a stored parameter; the user regains control and malevolently changes the parameter; the operating system regains control and [continues] processing using the maliciously altered parameter.
