If there is one defining difference between a smart threat and advanced threat, it would be that smart threats “use what they know,” meaning they’ll typically stick with attack vectors that have worked for them in the past.

Political or activist motives Maybe you’d like to know the maximum amount someone is willing to pay you, or the minimum amount someone else is willing to be paid. Maybe you’d like to know the financial information of a public company before the rest of the world does.
