Use the following scenario to answer the questions. A company has just had a cybersecurity incident. The threat actor or actors appeared to have a goal of network disruption and appeared to use a common security hack tool that overwhelmed a particular server with a large amount of traffic, which rendered the server inoperable.
What are three common tools used to carry out this type of attack? (Choose three.)
- ping sweep
- TCP SYN flood
- buffer overflow
- IP, MAC, and DHCP spoofing
- smurf attack
Explanation: Three tools used to carry out this type of attack are TCP SYN flood, buffer overflow, and smurf attack. All three attacks send data in order to overwhelm another network device. A ping sweep is used in reconnaissance. Man-in-the middle occurs when the threat actor collects data in order to read, modify, or redirect that data. IP, MAC, and DHCP spoofing attacks are used to falsify address data.
