BREACH stands for ‘Browser Reconnaissance & Exfiltration via Adaptive Compression of Hypertext’. BREACH is a group of vulnerabilities of the same type, rather than a specific instance that impacts a particular piece of software. BREACH Attack detection is a security check that checks multiple criteria. BREACH Attack detection checks protected connections in which attackers can still view the victim’s encrypted traffic.

There are no additional settings available for the BREACH Attack Detection.

The BREACH Attack Security Check is enabled by default.

For further information, see Scan Policy Fields and Security Checks.
