Question:
A network administrator is issuing the login block-for 180 attempts 2 within 30 command on a router. Which threat is the network administrator trying to prevent?

  • a user who is trying to guess a password to access the router
  • a worm that is attempting to access another part of the network
  • an unidentified individual who is trying to access the network equipment room
  • a device that is trying to inspect the traffic on a link

Explanation: The login block-for 180 attempts 2 within 30 command will cause the device to block authentication after 2 unsuccessful attempts within 30 seconds for a duration of 180 seconds. A device inspecting the traffic on a link has nothing to do with the router. The router configuration cannot prevent unauthorized access to the equipment room. A worm would not attempt to access the router to propagate to another part of the network.
