Q171. Which port, when configured on a switch receives a copy of every packet that passes through it? 

A. R-DUPE Port 

B. MIRROR port 

C. SPAN port 


Answer: C

Q172. Which of the following is not an effective countermeasure against replay attacks? 

A. Digital signatures 

B. Time Stamps 

C. System identification 

D. Sequence numbers 

Answer: C

Explanation: A replay attack is a form of network attack in which a valid data transmission is maliciously or fraudulently repeated or delayed. Effective countermeasures should be anything that makes it hard to delay or replay the packet (time stamps and sequence numbers) or anything that prove the package is received as it was sent from the original sender (digital signature)

A. An application proxy firewall 

B. A stateful inspection firewall 

C. A host based IDS 

D. A Honeypot 

Answer: B


A Successfully Attack by a malicious hacker can divide into five phases, Match the order: 


Q175. While performing ping scans into a target network you get a frantic call from the organization’s security team. They report that they are under a denial of service attack. When you stop your scan, the smurf attack event stops showing up on the organization’s IDS monitor. How can you modify your scan to prevent triggering this event in the IDS? 

A. Scan more slowly. 

B. Do not scan the broadcast IP. 

C. Spoof the source IP address. 

D. Only scan the Windows systems. 

Answer: B

Explanation: Scanning the broadcast address makes the scan target all IP addresses on that subnet at the same time. 

Q176. The GET method should never be used when sensitive data such as credit card is being sent to a CGI program. This is because any GET command will appear in the URL, and will be logged by any servers. For example, let's say that you've entered your credit card information into a form that uses the GET method. The URL may appear like this: 

The GET method appends the credit card number to the URL. This means that anyone with access to a server log will be able to obtain this information. How would you protect from this type of attack? 

A. Never include sensitive information in a script 

B. Use HTTPS SSLv3 to send the data instead of plain HTTPS 

C. Replace the GET with POST method when sending data 

D. Encrypt the data before you send using GET method 

Answer: C

Q177. Which type of scan does not open a full TCP connection? 

A. Stealth Scan 

B. XMAS Scan 

C. Null Scan 

D. FIN Scan 

Answer: A

Explanation: Stealth Scan: Instead of completing the full TCP three-way-handshake a full connection is not made. A SYN packet is sent to the system and if a SYN/ACK packet is received it is assumed that the port on the system is active. In that case a RST/ACK will be sent which will determined the listening state the system is in. If a RST/ACK packet is received, it is assumed that the port on the system is not active. 

Q178. Paula works as the primary help desk contact for her company. Paula has just received a call from a user reporting that his computer just displayed a Blue Screen of Death screen and he ca no longer work. Paula walks over to the user’s computer and sees the Blue Screen of Death screen. The user’s computer is running Windows XP, but the Blue screen looks like a familiar one that Paula had seen a Windows 2000 Computers periodically. 

The user said he stepped away from his computer for only 15 minutes and when he got back, the Blue Screen was there. Paula also noticed that the hard drive activity light was flashing meaning that the computer was processing some thing. Paula knew this should not be the case since the computer should be completely frozen during a Blue screen. She checks the network IDS live log entries and notices numerous nmap scan alerts. 

What is Paula seeing happen on this computer? 

A. Paula’s Network was scanned using FloppyScan 

B. Paula’s Netwrok was scanned using Dumpsec 

C. There was IRQ conflict in Paula’s PC 

D. Tool like Nessus will cause BSOD 

Answer: A

Explanation: Floppyscan is a dangerous hacking tool which can be used to portscan a system using a floppy disk Bootsup mini Linux Displays Blue screen of death screen Port scans the network using NMAP Send the results by e-mail to a remote server. 

Q179. Rebecca has noted multiple entries in her logs about users attempting to connect on ports that are either not opened or ports that are not for public usage. How can she restrict this type of abuse by limiting access to only specific IP addresses that are trusted by using one of the built-in Linux Operating System tools? 

A. Ensure all files have at least a 755 or more restrictive permissions. 

B. Configure rules using ipchains. 

C. Configure and enable portsentry on his server. 

D. Install an intrusion detection system on her computer such as Snort. 

Answer: B

Explanation: ipchains is a free software based firewall for Linux. It is a rewrite of Linux's previous IPv4 firewalling code, ipfwadm. In Linux 2.2, ipchains is required to administer the IP packet filters. ipchains was written because the older IPv4 firewall code used in Linux 2.0 did not work with IP fragments and didn't allow for specification of protocols other than TCP, UDP, and ICMP. 

Q180. You have been using the attack script to execute arbitrary commands on an NT4 web server. While it is effective, you find it tedious to perform extended functions. On further research you come across a perl script that runs the following msadc functions: 

What kind of exploit is indicated by this script? 

A. A buffer overflow exploit. 

B. A SUID exploit. 

C. A SQL injection exploit. 

D. A chained exploit. 

E. A buffer under run exploit. 

Answer: D
