Questions and answers 100% correct.
1. What are the basic phases of attack that can be used by a virus or worm in sequential order? paralyze, probe, penetrate, persist, and propagate probe, penetrate, persist, propagate, and paralyze penetrate, persist, propagate, paralyze, and probe persist, propagate, paralyze, probe, and penetrate 2. Which two are characteristics of DoS attacks? (Choose two.) They always precede access attacks. They attempt to compromise the availability of a network, host, or application. They are difficult to conduct and are initiated only by very skilled attackers. They are commonly launched with a too called L0phtCrack. tool Examples include smurf attacks and ping of death attacks. 3. Users report to the helpdesk that icons usually seen on the menu bar are randomly appearing on their computer screens. What could be a reason that computers are displaying these random graphics? An access attack has occurred. A virus has infected the computers. A DoS attack has been launched against the network. The computers are subject to a reconnaissance attack. 4. What are three types of access attacks? (Choose three.) buffer overflow ping sweep port redirection trust exploitation port scan Internet information query 5. What occurs during a spoofing attack? One device falsifies data to gain access to privileged information. Large amounts of network traffic are sent to a target device to make reso resources unavailable to intended users. Improperly formatted packets are forwarded to a target device to cause the target system to crash. A program writes data beyond the allocated memory to enable the execution of malicious code.

An FTP Trojan Horse stops anti virus programs or firewalls from functioning. Which phase of worm mitigation requires compartmentalization and segmentation of the network to slow down or stop the worm and prevent currently infected hosts from targeting and infecting other systems? containment phase inoculation phase quarantine phase treatment phase 8. What type of network attack does this describe? Denial of Service . What is a ping sweep? A ping sweep is a network scanning technique that indicates the live hosts in a technique range of IP addresses. anti-virus A Trojan Horse can be hard to detect because it closes when the application that launched it closes. 7. such as passwords. What is a characteristic of a Trojan Horse? A Trojan Horse can be carried in a virus or worm. A ping sweep is a scanning technique that examines a range of TCP or UDP p port numbers on a host to detect listening services. activate 9. Which type of security threat can be described as software that attaches to another program to execute a specific unwanted function? virus worm proxy Trojan horse Denial of Service Trojan horse 11. A disgruntled employee is using Wireshark to discover administrative Telnet usernames and passwords. A virus has an enabling vulnerability. and a payload. A ping sweep is a software application that enables the capture of all network packets sent across a LAN. A virus provides the attacker with sensitive data.) A virus typically requires end end-user activation. A proxy Trojan Horse opens port 21 on the target system. A virus can be dormant and then activate at a specific time or date. A ping sweep is a query and response protocol that identifies information about a domain. 10.6. including the addresses assigned to that domain. a propagation mechanism. Which two statements are characteristics of a virus? (Choose two. A virus replicates itself by independently exploiting vulnerabilities in networks.

What are the three major components of a worm attack? (Choose three.535 bytes by sending a large number of ICMP requests to directed broadcast addresses from a spoofed source address on t same network the by sending a large number of TCP SYN packets to a target device from a spoofed source address . A network administrator detects unknown sessions involving port 21 on the network.) disable used ports and services determine potential vulnerabilities identify active services identify peripheral configurations identify operating systems discover system passwords 16. How is a Smurf attack conducted? by sending a large number of packets. overflowing the allocated buffer memory of the target device by sending an echo request in an IP packet larger than the maximum packet size of 65. What are three goals of a port scan attack? (Choose three. Cisco Security Agent is testing the network. What occurs during the persist phase of a worm attack? identification of vulnerable targets modification of system files and registry settings to ensure that the attack code is running transfer of exploit code through an attack vector er extension of the attack to vulnerable neighboring targets 13. A denial of service attack is occurring.) enabling vulnerability infecting vulnerability payload penetration mechanism probing mechanism propagation mechanism 14.port redirection reconnaissance trust exploitation 12. 15. A reconnaissance attack is occurring. What could be causing this security breach? An FTP Trojan Horse is executing.

systems.) virus scanning data encryption anti-spoofing technologies spoofing intrusion protection systems applying user authentication 19. Which characteristic best describes the network security Compliance domain as specified by the ISO/IEC? the integration of security into applications an inventory and classification scheme for information assets the restriction of access rights to networks. applications. and data the process of ensuring conformance with security information policies. A hacker gains unauthorized access to networks via wireless access points. Which phase of worm mitigation involves terminating the worm process. bulletin board systems. and fax machines. A hacker uses a program that automatically scans telephone numbers within a gram local area. removing modified files or system settings that the worm introduced. Which access attack method involves a software program attempting to discover a system password by using an electronic dictionary? buffer overflow attack port redirection attack Denial of Service attack brute-force attack force IP spoofing attack tack packet sniffer attack 18 Which two network security solutions can be used to mitigate DoS attacks? (Choose two.17. Which statement describes phone freaking? A hacker uses password cracking programs to gain access to a computer via a password-cracking dialup account. A hacker mimics a tone using a whistle to make free long distance calls on an long-distance analog telephone network. functions. and patching the vulnerability that the worm used to exploit the system? containment inoculation quarantine treatment 20. with standards. . dialing each one in search of computers. and regulations 21.

Password attacks can be implemented using brute force attack methods.22.) Port redirection attacks use a network adapter card in promiscuous mode to capture all network packets that are sent across a LAN. or packet sniffers. Which two statements describe access attacks? (Choose two. Tro brute-force Trojan Horses. Port scanning attacks scan a range of TCP or UDP port numbers on a host to detect listening services. wireless . Trust exploitation attacks can use a laptop acting as a rogue access point to capture and copy all network traffic in a public location on a wireles hotspot. Buffer overflow attacks write data beyond the allocated buffer memory to overwrite valid data or exploit systems to execute malicious code.
