An effective way for attackers to appear legitimate in face of security solutions is by exploiting logic flaws in the functionality of existing systems. These logic flaws are what we call design vulnerabilities.
With design vulnerabilities, the threat actor exploits a feature of a given product. It's not that there's a bug to be exploited; the code may be fine. It's more about threat actors taking advantage of an unintended consequence of a feature. As such, they require solutions unique to each attack.
