    • SQL injection attack
    • Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF)
  4. User A is writing a sensitive email message to user B outside the local network. User A has chosen to use PKI to secure his message and ensure only user B can read the sensitive email. At what layer of the OSI layer does the encryption and decryption of the message take place?

  5. A new wireless client is configured to join a 802.11 network. This client uses the same hardware and software as many of the other clients on the network.

A wireless packet sniffer shows that the Wireless Access Point (WAP) is not responding to the association requests being sent by the wireless client. What is a possible source of this problem?

    • The WAP does not recognize the client’s MAC address
    • The client cannot see the SSID of the wireless network
    • Client is configured for the wrong channel
    • The wireless client is not configured to use DHCP
  6. If you want to only scan fewer ports than the default scan using Nmap tool, which option would you use?

  8. You are tasked to perform a penetration test. While you are performing information gathering, you find an employee list in Google. You find the receptionist’s email, and you send her an email changing the source email to her boss’s email (boss@company). In this email, you ask for a pdf with information. She reads your email and sends back a pdf with links. You exchange the pdf links with your malicious links (these links contain malware) and send back the modified pdf, saying that the links don’t work. She reads your email, opens the links, and her machine gets infected. You now have access to the company network. What testing method did you use?

    • Piggybacking
    • Tailgating
    • Eavesdropping
  9. 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?

    • Hping
    • TCP ping
    • Broadcast ping
  10. Which is the first step followed by Vulnerability Scanners for scanning a network?
