3.This IDS defeating technique works by splitting a datagram (or packet) into multiple fragments
and the IDS will not spot the true nature of the fully assembled datagram. The datagram is not
reassembled until it reaches its final destination. It would be a processor-intensive task for IDS to
reassemble all fragments itself, and on a busy system the packet will slip through the IDS onto
the network. What is this technique called?
A. IP Routing or Packet Dropping
B. IDS Spoofing or Session Assembly
C. IP Fragmentation or Session Splicing
D. IP Splicing or Packet Reassembly
Answer: C

4.If a competitor wants to cause damage to your organization, steal critical secrets, or put you

7.Anonymizer sites access the Internet on your behalf, protecting your personal information from
disclosure. An anonymizer protects all of your computer’s identifying information while it surfs for
you, enabling you to remain at least one step removed from the sites you visit.
You can visit Web sites without allowing anyone to gather information on sites visited by you.
Services that provide anonymity disable pop-up windows and cookies, and conceal visitor’s IP
These services typically use a proxy server to process each HTTP request. When the user
requests a Web page by clicking a hyperlink or typing a URL into their browser, the service
retrieves and displays the information using its own server. The remote server (where the
requested Web page resides) receives information on the anonymous Web surfing service in
place of your information.
In which situations would you want to use anonymizer? (Select 3 answers)
A. Increase your Web browsing bandwidth speed by using Anonymizer
B. To protect your privacy and Identity on the Internet
C. To bypass blocking applications that would prevent access to Web sites or parts of sites that
you want to visit.
D. Post negative entries in blogs without revealing your IP identity
Answer: B,C,D

11.TCP SYN Flood attack uses the three-way handshake mechanism.
1. An attacker at system A sends a SYN packet to victim at system B.
2. System B sends a SYN/ACK packet to victim A.
3. As a normal three-way handshake mechanism system A should send an ACK packet to
system B, however, system A does not send an ACK packet to system B. In this case client B is
waiting for an ACK packet from client A.
This status of client B is called _________________
A. “half-closed”
B. “half open”

12.Lori is a Certified Ethical Hacker as well as a Certified Hacking Forensics Investigator working
as an IT security consultant. Lori has been hired on by Kiley Innovators, a large marketing firm
that recently underwent a string of thefts and corporate espionage incidents. Lori is told that a
rival marketing company came out with an exact duplicate product right before Kiley Innovators
was about to release it. The executive team believes that an employee is leaking information to
the rival company. Lori questions all employees, reviews server logs, and firewall logs; after
which she finds nothing. Lori is then given permission to search through the corporate email
system. She searches by email being sent to and sentfrom the rival marketing company.
She finds one employee that appears to be sending very large email to this other marketing
company, even though they should have no reason to be communicating with them. Lori tracks
down the actual emails sent and upon opening them, only finds picture files attached to them.
These files seem perfectly harmless, usually containing some kind of joke. Lori decides to use
some special software to further examine the pictures and finds that each one had hidden text
that was stored in each picture.

16.You are the security administrator of Jaco Banking Systems located in Boston. You are
setting up e-banking website ( authentication system. Instead of
issuing banking customer with a single password, you give them a printed list of 100 unique passwords. Each time the customer needs to log into the e-banking system website, the
customer enters the next password on the list. If someone sees them type the password using
shoulder surfing, MiTM or keyloggers, then no damage is done because the password will not be
accepted a second time.
Once the list of 100 passwords is almost finished, the system automatically sends out a new
password list by encrypted e-mail to the customer.
You are confident that this security implementation will protect the customer from password
Two months later, a group of hackers called “HackJihad” found a way to access the one-time
password list issued to customers of Jaco Banking Systems. The hackers set up a fake website
( and used phishing attacks to direct ignorant customers to it. The
fake website asked users for their e-banking username and password, and the next unused
entry from their one-time password sheet. The hackers collected 200 customer’s
username/passwords this way. They transferred money from the customer’s bank account to
various offshore accounts.
Your decision of password policy implementation has cost the bank with USD 925,000 to
hackers. You immediately shut down the e-banking website while figuring out the next best
security solution What effective security solution will you recommend in this case?
A. Implement Biometrics based password authentication system. Record the customers face
image to the authentication database
B. Configure your firewall to block logon attempts of more than three wrong tries
C. Enable a complex password policy of 20 characters and ask the user to change the password
immediately after they logon and do not store password histories
D. Implement RSA SecureID based authentication system
Answer: D

17.More sophisticated IDSs look for common shellcode signatures. But even these systems can
be bypassed, by using polymorphic shellcode. This is a technique common among virus
writers ?it basically hides the true nature of the shellcode in different disguises.
How does a polymorphic shellcode work?

decrypt the shellcode, and then executing the decrypted shellcode
B. They convert the shellcode into Unicode, using loader to convert back to machine code then
executing them
C. They reverse the working instructions into opposite order by masking the IDS signatures
D. They compress shellcode into normal instructions, uncompress the shellcode using loader
code and then executing the shellcode
