Data Driven Attack - definition(s)

Data Driven Attack - A form of attack that is encoded in seemingly innocuous data, which is executed by a user or a process to implement an attack. A data driven attack is a concern for firewalls, since it may get through the firewall in data form and launch an attack against a system behind the firewall.
