The Network Vulnerabilities Part 2 module provides you with the instruction and Server hardware to develop your hands-on skills in the defined topics. This module includes the following exercises:
- Denial of Service
- Anti-Phishing Toolbar
Lab time: It will take approximately 1 hour to complete this lab.
The following exam objectives are covered in this lab:
- SY0-501 1.2: Compare and contrast types of attacks
- SY0-501 3.2: Given a scenario, implement secure network architecture concepts
Exercise 1 - Denial of Service
There are any number of ways to prevent a server from responding to clients. We could have used Ettercap to simply discard any packets from client or server for instance. Flood type attacks really depend on overwhelming the victim system with superior bandwidth, which itself depends on compromising thousands or even millions of "zombie" PCs in a "botnet". This exercise just illustrates how simple it is to craft the sort of malformed packets that can be used to try to flood a server.
Exercise 2- Anti-Phishing Toolbar
In this exercise, you will learn the following in this course:
- Anti-Phishing Toolbar: Netcraft
