  4. “…… an attack type for a rogue Wi-Fi access point that appears to be a legitimate one offered on the premises, but actually has been set up to eavesdrop on wireless communications. It is the wireless version of the phishing scam. An attacker fools wireless users into connecting a laptop or mobile phone to a tainted hotspot by posing as a legitimate provider. This type of attack may be used to steal the passwords of unsuspecting users by either snooping the communication link or by phishing, which involves setting up a fraudulent web site and luring people there.”

    • SFTP
    • Ipsec
    • SSL
    • FTPS
  14. To reach a bank web site, the traffic from workstations must pass through a firewall. You have been asked to review the firewall configuration to ensure that workstations in network can only reach the bank web site using https. Which of the following firewall rules meets this requirement?

    • if (source matches and destination matches and port matches 443) then permit
    • if (source matches and destination matches and port matches 80 or 443) then permit

    • if (source matches and destination matches and port matches 443) then permit
  15. Jim’s company regularly performs backups of their critical servers. But the company cannot afford to send backup tapes to an off-site vendor for long-term storage and archiving. Instead, Jim’s company keeps the backup tapes in a safe in the office. Jim’s company is audited each year, and the results from this year’s audit show a risk because backup tapes are not stored off-site. The Manager of Information Technology has a plan to take the backup tapes home with him and wants to know what two things he can do to secure the backup tapes while in transit?

    • Encrypt the backup tapes and transport them in a lock box.
    • Degauss the backup tapes and transport them in a lock box.
    • Hash the backup tapes and transport them in a lock box.
    • Encrypt the backup tapes and use a courier to transport them.

    3. Victim clicks to the interesting and attractive content URL.
    4. Attacker creates a transparent ‘iframe’ in front of the URL which the victim attempts to click, so the victim thinks that he/she clicks on the ‘Do you want to make $1000 in a day?’ URL but actually he/she clicks on the content or URL that exists in the transparent ‘iframe’ which is setup by the attacker.
