2.A company has a web server on the company DMZ to provide external web services. While reviewing firewall log files, an administrator
notices that a connection has been made from the web server to an internal e-mail server. Upon further investigation, the administrator
discovers that an unauthorized account has been created on the internal server. Which type of attack was successfully carried out?
3.Which two statements are true regarding network security? (Choose two.)
Securing a network against internal threats is a lower priority because company employees represent a low security risk.
Both experienced hackers who are capable of writing their own exploit code and inexperienced individuals who download exploits
from the Internet pose a serious threat to network security.
Assuming a company locates its web server outside the firewall and has adequate backups of the web server, no further security
measures are needed to protect the web server because no harm can come from it being hacked.
Established network operating systems like UNIX and network protocols like TCP/IP can be used with their default settings
because they have no inherent security weaknesses.
Protecting network devices from physical damage caused by water or electricity is a necessary part of the security policy.

11 Which two conditions should the network administrator verify before attempting to upgrade a Cisco IOS image using a TFTP server? (Choose two.)
Verify the name of the TFTP server using the show hosts command.
Verify that the TFTP server is running using the tftpdnld command.
Verify that the checksum for the image is valid using the show version command.
Verify connectivity between the router and TFTP server using the ping command.
Verify that there is enough flash memory for the new Cisco IOS image using the show flash command.
12.Refer to the exhibit. A network administrator is trying to configure a router to use SDM, but it is not functioning correctly. What could be the problem?
The privilege level of the user is not configured correctly.
The authentication method is not configured correctly.
The HTTP server is not configured correctly.
The HTTP timeout policy is not configured correctly.
13.Which two statements are true regarding network attacks? (Choose two.)
Reconnaissance attacks are always electronic in nature, such as ping sweeps or port scans.
Devices in the DMZ should not be fully trusted by internal devices, and communication between the DMZ and internal devices
should be authenticated to prevent attacks such as port redirection.
Worms require human interaction to spread, viruses do not.
Strong network passwords mitigate most DoS attacks.
Given time, a brute force attack always yields the password, as long as the password is made up of the characters selected to test.
14.Which two statements define the security risk that is presented by SNMPv1 or SNMPv2 when either is enabled on the network? (Choose two.)
SNMP uses authentication strings called community strings, which are stored and sent across the network in plain text.
Only the station that acts as a SNMP manager can encrypt the request and respond messages. All other machines that act as
SNMP agents send the messages in plain text.
A SNMP agent can encrypt the inform requests but not the trap requests.
No access list can be defined for the SNMP messages that are sent by the SNMP agents.
SNMP is an easily spoofed, datagram-based transaction protocol.
15.Refer to the exhibit. Which two statements about the configuration shown are true? (Choose two.)
access granted with password "local"
SSH server function is enabled on R1
SSH client function is enabled on R1
remote access connection will fail with no local username database
remote access connection will be made on secure shell port 443
16.Which two statements regarding preventing network attacks are true? (Choose two.)
The default security settings for modern server and PC operating systems can be trusted to have secure default security settings.
Intrusion prevention systems can log suspicious network activity, but there is no way to counter an attack in progress without user
Physical security threat mitigation consists of controlling access to device console ports, labeling critical cable runs, installing UPS
systems, and providing climate control.
Phishing attacks are best prevented by firewall devices.
Changing default usernames and passwords and disabling or uninstalling unnecessary services are aspects of device hardening.
17.Which two statements define the security risk when DNS services are enabled on the network? (Choose two.)
By default, name queries are sent to the broadcast address 255.255.255.255.
DNS name queries require the ip directed-broadcast command to be enabled on the Ethernet interfaces of all routers.
Using the global configuration command ip name-server on one router enables the DNS services on all routers in the network.
The basic DNS protocol does not provide authentication or integrity assurance.
The router configuration does not provide an option to set up main and backup DNS servers.
18.When a user completes the Cisco SDM VPN wizard, what is done with the information that has been entered?
The information is saved to a text file that can be used to configure clients.
After user confirmation, the Cisco SDM-generated CLI commands are sent to the router.
SDM generates traffic to test the configuration before it is applied to the router.
A dialog box prompts the user for username and password information.
