  • Phishing
Answer
Phishing

Phishing attack are done to obtain Confidential information from you by falsifying identity and the main source of attack is Emails.

Q:10. If you share too much information on social media, you might be at risk of?
  • Identity Theft
  • Ransomware
  • Malware
  • Adware
Answer
Identity Theft

There are lot of social media apps that ask for permission to access your account before installing them. You are at risk of Identity Theft when you post updates of your activities or Your social media account.
Q:11. Which of the following programming languages have common buffer overflow problem in the development of applications?
  • C, Ruby
  • C, C++
  • Python, Ruby
  • C, Python
Answer 
C, C++

Explanation; 
C & C ++ have Common butter overflow problems in development of applications because Strcat (), Strcpy (), gets () when called in C & C++ can be exploited because these functions don’t check whether the Stack is large enough for Storing the data. 

Q:12 Which type of buffer overflows are common among attackers?
  • Memory-based
  • Queue-based
  • Stack-based
  • Heap-based
Answer
Stack Based 
Explanation 
Stack based butter overflow is common among attackers because it exploits application by overflowing the Stack Memory Space where users externally input the data.
Q:13. In attack, malicious code is pushed into
  • buffer-overflow, stack
  • buffer-overflow, queue
  • buffer-overflow, memory-card
  • buffer-overflow, external drive
Answer
buffer-overflow, stack

Explanation: 
Malicious code can be pushed into the Stack during butter-overflow attack. The overflow can be used to overwrite the return address so that the to control flow tranfer to the malicious code.

Q:14. In case of integer overflow, Which of the following option/s is/are true?
  • It is a result of an attempt to store a value greater than the maximum value an integer can store
  • Integer overflow can compromise a program’s reliability and security
  • Both A and B
  • None of the above
Answer 
Both A and B

Explanation
Integer overflow occurs when integer exceeds the max value and due to this programs reliability and Security is compromised.

Q:15. A string which contains
  • Format, text
  • Text, format
  • text and format, format
  • None of the above
Answer 
text and format, format
Explanation 
format String is a ASCII String which contain text and format parameters. for Example printf (” this year is: %d”, 2222)


Q:16. If we talk about control hijacking, which of the following is true
  • In Buffer overflow attacks, stack based attacks are more common than heap based attack.
  • Integer overflow attacks is not a type of control hijacking.
  • Format string vulnerabilities are used to prevent control hijacking.
  • All of the above
Answer 
In Buffer overflow attacks, stack based attacks are more common than heap based attack.
Explanation 
Control hijacking means take control of target machine & execute arbitrary Code on target machine by hijacking application Control flow. Examples of Control hijacking are Buffer over flow attack. Integer overflow attack and format string Vulnerability. 

Q:17. If we mark the stack and heap segment as non executable,
  • No code will execute.
  • return-oriented programming will also not be able to exploit it.
  • we can prevent overflow code execution.
  • All of the above.
Answer
we can prevent overflow code execution.

Explanation 
Data Execution Prevention (DEP) prevent overflow Cocle execution but it does not defend against ROP because ROP doesn’t require the Code in the Stack/heap. It only need the address to the code in stack / heap and that address is not having DEP.

Q:18. If we talk about Return Oriented Programming, which of the following statement is true ?
  • It is a computer security exploit technique that allows an attacker to execute code in the presence of security defenses such as DEP and code signing
  • These types of attacks arise when an adversary manipulates the call stack by taking advantage of a bug in the program, often a buffer overflow.
  • Return-oriented programming is an advanced version of a stack smashing attack.
  • All of the above
Answer
All of the above

Explanation 
Return oriented Programming (ROP) is a computer security exploit technique that allows an attacker to execute code in the presence of security defence such as DẸP & code signing. It is an advanced version of stack smashing attack.

Q.19. An hardware device’s interrupt request
  • Instruction Set Randomization
  • Information Storage and Retrieval
  • Interrupt Service Routine
  • Intermediate Session Routing
Answer
Interrupt Service Routine

Explanation 
ISR is process invoked by an interrupt request By interrupting the handles from hardware device. By interrupting the active process, it handles the request & sends it to CPU. when ISR is complete the process is resumed.
Q:20. Which of the following is a method of randomization?
  • ASLR
  • Sys-call randomization
  • Memory randomization
  • All of the above.
Answer 
All of the above
Explanation 
Randomization is a computer Security technique. In this everything in Process memory must be randomized i.e. randomly positioning the Stack, heap, Shared libs, base image. Randomization methods are ASLR, Sys-call randomization, Instruction Set Randomization (ISR)
