Bug exploits are attacks that poses threat to a system within the software program. It can be a block of data or a set of commands which takes advantage of the system vulnerabilities. These exploits happen for financial profit from system vulnerabilities and even expose them for personal gains.

Bug exploits are malicious program sets that cause unanticipated behaviors in the applications or the computer networks. These malicious actors enable them to gain access to such vulnerable systems and run denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks.

Bug exploits can be further classified into remote and local exploits. Remote exploits often take advantage of security vulnerabilities without any prior access to the system. As for local exploits, prior access is required to increase the controllability of the exploit. Exploits against client applications also exist, which are known as browser exploits.
