English term or phrase:capture
"There are at least three ways that a valid session identifier can be obtained by an attacker:
A “prediction” attack involves guessing a valid session identifier to gain access. Note, that the PHP language has native session handling that makes this type of attack inherently difficult.
A “capture” attack is little easier and therefore much more common. This can be brought about when cookies are used to store session identifiers. Therefore, a web browsers weaknesses can be exploited to obtain this information.
A session “fixation” attack tricks the victim into using a session identifier chosen by the attacker. If successful, it represents the simplest method with which a valid session identifier can be obtained."
