Abstract: The internet has become an irreplaceable communicating and informative tool in the current world. With the ever-growing importance and massive use of the internet today, there has been interesting from researchers to find the perfect Cyber Attack Detection Systems (CADSs) or rather referred to as Intrusion Detection Systems (IDSs) to protect against the vulnerabilities of network security. CADS presently exist in various variants but can be largely categorized into two broad classifications; signature-based detection and anomaly detection CADSs, based on their approaches to recognize attack packets. The signature-based CADS use the well-known signatures or fingerprints of the attack packets to signal the entry across the gateways of secured networks. Signature-based CADS can only recognize threats that use the known signature, new attacks with unknown signatures can, therefore, strike without notice. Alternatively, anomaly-based CADS are enabled to detect any abnormal traffic within the network and report. There are so many ways of identifying anomalies and different machine learning algorithms are introduced to counter such threats. Most systems, however, fall short of complete attack prevention in the real world due system administration and configuration, system complexity and abuse of authorized access. Several scholars and researchers have achieved a significant milestone in the development of CADS owing to the importance of computer and network security. This paper reviews the current trends of CADS analyzing the efficiency or level of detection accuracy of the machine learning algorithms for cyber-attack detection with an aim to point out to the best. CADS is a developing research area that continues to attract several researchers due to its critical objective.
