Which devices scan and infect more targets during the process of a DDoS attack?
- web servers
- CnC servers
Explanation: In DDoS attack scenarios, zombies, or infected hosts, continue to scan and infect targets with the intent of creating more zombies. The command-and-control (CnC) server communicates with zombies using a covert channel. When ready, the threat actor (botmaster) uses the CnC servers to instruct the botnet of zombies to launch a DDoS attack on a specific target.
