Hi All! I have decided to give you the questions with the multiple choices..
1)Eric notices probes to port 1080. He learns that the protocol being used is designed to allow a host outside of a firewall to connect transparently and securely through a firewall. He wonders if his firewall has been breached. What would be your inference?
A. Eric's network has been penetrated by a firewall breach?
B. The attcker is using ICMP protocol to have a covert channel
C. Eric has a wingate package providing FTP redirection on his network
D. Somebody is using SOCKS on the network to communicate through the Firewall
2) You are the security administrator for a large network. You want to prevent attackers from running any sort of traceroute into your DMZ and discover the internal structure of publicly accessible areas of the network. How can you achieve this?
A. Block ICMP at the firewall
B. Block UDP at the firewall
C. Both A and B
D. There is no way to completely block doing a traceroute into this area.
3) What do you conclude from the nmap results below?
starting nmap V. 3. 10ALPHA0 (www.insecyre.org/nmap
(The 1592 ports scanned but not shown below are in stae: closed)
Port state Service
21/tcp open ftp
25/tcp open smtp
90/tcp open http
443/tcp open https
Remote operating system guess: Too many signatures match the reliability to guess the OS. Nmap run completed - 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 91.66 seconds.
A. The system is a windows domain controller
B. The system is not firewalled
C. The system is not running linus or solaris
D. The system is not properly patched
4) You are doing IP spoofing while you scan your target. You find that the target has port 23 open. Abyway you are unable to connect. Why?
A. A firewall is blocking port 23
B You cannot spoof + TCP
C. You need an automated telnet tool
D. The OS does not reply to telnet if port 23 is open.
