TCP/IP stack fingerprinting is the passive collection of configuration attributes from a remote device during standard layer 4 network communications. The combination of parameters may then be used to infer the remote operating system (OS fingerprinting), or incorporated into a device fingerprint. Which of the following Nmap switches can be used to perform TCP/IP stack fingerprinting?
nmap -sU -p
nmap -O -p
nmap -sT Explanation:
Explanation: The nmap -O -p switch can be used to perform TCP/IP stack fingerprinting. Nmap is a free open-source utility for network exploration and security auditing. It is used to discover computers and services on a computer network, thus creating a quot;mapquot; of the network. Just like many simple port scanners, Nmap is capable of discovering passive services. In addition, Nmap may be able to determine various details about the remote computers. These include operating system, device type, uptime, software product used to run a service, exact version number of that product, presence of some firewall techniques and, on a local area network, even vendor of the remote network card. Nmap runs on Linux, Microsoft Windows etc. Answer: B is incorrect. The nmap -sU -p switch can be used to perform UDP port scanning. Answer: A is incorrect. The nmap -sS switch is used to perform a TCP half scan. TCP SYN scanning is also known as half-open scanning because in this a full TCP connection is never opened. Answer: D is incorrect. The nmap -sT switch is used to perform a TCP full scan.

You are the Network Administrator for a software development company. Your company creates various utilities and tools. You have noticed that some of the files your company creates are getting deleted from systems. When one is deleted, it seems to be deleted from all the computers on your network. Where would you first look to try and diagnose this problem?
Explanation: Check the antivirus log and see if it is detecting your file as a virus and deleting it. All antivirus programs have a certain rate of false positives. Since the file is being deleted from all computers, it seems likely that your antivirus has mistakenly identified that file as a virus. Answer: D is incorrect. The firewall log can help you identify
traffic entering or leaving your network, but won#39;t help with files being deleted. Answer: B is incorrect. An IDS log would help you identify possible attacks, but this scenario is unlikely to be from an external attack. Answer: C is incorrect. Your system log can only tell you what is happening on that individual computer.

John works as a professional Ethical Hacker. He has been assigned the project of testing the security of www.we-are-secure.com. He notices that UDP port 137 of the We-are- secure server is open. Assuming that the Network Administrator of We-are-secure Inc. has
not changed the default port values of the services, which of the following services is running on UDP port 137?
Explanation: NetBIOS is a Microsoft service that enables applications on different computers to communicate within a LAN. NetBIOS systems identify themselves with a 15- character unique name and use Server Message Block, which allows Remote directory, file and printer sharing, etc. The default port value of NetBIOS Name Resolution Service is 137/UDP. Answer: A is incorrect. Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) is a client/server TCP/IP protocol used on the World Wide Web (WWW) to display Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) pages. HTTP defines how messages are formatted and transmitted, and what actions Web servers and browsers should take in response to various commands. For example, when a client application or browser sends a request to the server using HTTP commands, the server responds with a message containing the protocol version, success or failure code, server information, and body content, depending on the request. HTTP uses TCP port 80 as the default port. Answer: D is incorrect. The default port of HTTPS is TCP/443. Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) protocol is a protocol used in the Universal Resource Locater (URL) address line to connect to a secure site. If a site has been made secure by using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) then HTTPS, instead of HTTP protocol, should be used as a protocol type in the URL. Answer: B is incorrect. TELNET is a command-line connectivity tool that starts terminal emulation with a remote host running the telnet server service. TELNET allows users to communicate with a remote computer, offers the ability to run programs remotely, and facilitates remote administration. The TELNET utility uses the Telnet protocol for connecting to a remote computer running the Telnet server software, to access files. It uses TCP port 23 by default.
