I'm writing an IT security related text and instinctively wrote the word "compromisation".
When I thought about it, I wasn't too sure anymore, so I check and the only actual reference to the word I found was on wiktionary.
Spell checks in my browser or MS Word don't know it either.
How I wanted to use it:
Attacker X used method Y to compromise system Z. (this seems fine to me)
Method Y lead to a compromisation of system Z. (this is what I attempted to use, but doesn't seem to be right)
Q: Is compromisation actually used in the English language or is there a better word for this?
edit: I've also come across this post in a forum, where the same question was asked, without conclusion.
