In which TCP attack is the cybercriminal attempting to overwhelm a target host with half-open TCP connections?

  • reset attack
  • port scan attack
  • SYN flood attack
  • session hijacking attack
    Answers Explanation & Hints:

    In a TCP SYN flood attack, the attacker sends to the target host a continuous flood of TCP SYN session requests with a spoofed source IP address. The target host responds with a TCP-SYN-ACK to each of the SYN session requests and waits for a TCP ACK that will never arrive. Eventually the target is overwhelmed with half-open TCP connections.
