Abstract: Succeeding the entrustment of the personal computer by Ed Roberts in 1975, the absolute first virus became known to exist in a trifling time span of six years. The adversary was called Elk Cloner. Not long before they established themselves as adverse. Forthwith, attacks become frequent by the clock at all levels possible. It is a direct indication to how important cyber security is considering the prolonging effect and enormous expansion caused by such events in recent years. Another major issue is the huge scale arrangement of gadgets with almost no security or a wide default security design susceptible to cyber-attack. Cyber security is swiftly transforming into an article of everyday usage. As attacks are becoming sophisticated, we expect gadgets like advanced mobile phones, PCs and significantly progressively computerized frameworks to be secure and the protection of the data to be fundamental. Our paper explores the variety of Cyber Attacks, their methodologies and core ideas with the motivations behind it, also the ways to circumvent the threats by putting lights on the ongoing and future technologies to tackle advanced threats.
