Q282 - A large company intends to use Blackberry for corporate mobile phones and a security analyst is assigned to evaluate the possible threats. The analyst will use the Blackjacking attack method to demonstrate how an attacker could circumvent perimeter defenses and gain access to the corporate network. What tool should the analyst use to perform a Blackjacking attack?
- Paros Proxy
Q283 - Which of the following is a vulnerability in GNU's bash shell (discovered in September of 2014) that gives attackers access to run remote commands on a vulnerable system?
Q284 - You are working as a Security Analyst in a company XYZ that owns the whole subnet range of 18.104.22.168/8 and 192.168.0.0/8. While monitoring the data, you find a high number of outbound connections. You see that IP's owned by XYZ (Internal) and private IP's are communicating to a Single Public IP. Therefore, the Internal IP's are sending data to the Public IP. After further analysis, you find out that this Public IP is a blacklisted IP, and the internal communicating devices are compromised. What kind of attack does the above scenario depict?
- Botnet Attack
- Spear Phishing Attack
- Advanced Persistent Threats
- Rootkit Attack
Q285 - What is the least important information when you analyze a public IP address in a security alert?
Q286 - How can telnet be used to fingerprint a web server?
- telnet webserverAddress 80 HEAD / HTTP/1.0
- telnet webserverAddress 80 PUT / HTTP/1.0
- telnet webserverAddress 80 HEAD / HTTP/2.0
- telnet webserverAddress 80 PUT / HTTP/2.0
Q287 - If a tester is attempting to ping a target that exists but receives no response or a response that states the destination is unreachable, ICMP may be disabled and the network may be using TCP. Which other option could the tester use to get a response from a host using TCP?
- TCP ping
- Broadcast ping
Q288 - Which of the following tools would be the best choice for achieving compliance with PCI Requirement 11?
Q289 - An attacker is trying to redirect the traffic of a small office. That office is using their own mail server, DNS server and NTP server because of the importance of their job.
