Technical exploitation Технічне використання (ua)
is one of the information influence techniques (see Influence Campaigns). Information influence activities often make use of, and exploit, new technologies. By using more advanced technical skills than most individuals possess, they can manipulate flows of information online. Manipulation can be conducted by individuals, by automated accounts or algorithms, and by combinations of people and automation. It should be noted that technical exploitation often uses a technological advantage to perform quite traditional information influence techniques such as Deceptive Identities, Disinformation and forgery. It includes: Bots, Sock Puppet, Deep Fakes, Phishing etc.
