    IDS signatures never need to be update.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "IDS signatures never need to be updated" is false. IDS (Intrusion Detection System) signatures are used to identify and detect specific patterns or behaviors associated with known attacks or vulnerabilities. As new threats emerge, it is necessary to update the signatures to ensure that the IDS can effectively detect and respond to the latest attacks. Regular updates are essential to keep the IDS up-to-date and capable of detecting new and evolving threats. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Telnet may be used on AWS for connecting to remote systems.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Telnet is not recommended for use on AWS for connecting to remote systems. AWS recommends using Secure Shell (SSH) for secure remote login and command execution. Telnet is an unencrypted protocol, which means that any data sent over the network can be intercepted and read by attackers. SSH, on the other hand, provides encryption and secure authentication, making it a safer option for remote connections on AWS. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Which of the following network protocols should be restricted:

    • A.

      Telnet / rlogin / rsh

    • B.

      Ftp / anonymous ftp / tftp

    • C.

      P2P

    • D.

      IRC and instant messaging

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    E. All of the above
    Explanation
    All of the above network protocols should be restricted because they pose security risks. Telnet, rlogin, and rsh are insecure protocols that transmit data in clear text, making it easy for attackers to intercept sensitive information. FTP and anonymous FTP allow unauthorized access to files and can be exploited by attackers. TFTP is also insecure and lacks authentication mechanisms. P2P (peer-to-peer) networks can facilitate the unauthorized sharing of copyrighted material and can expose users to malware. IRC and instant messaging can be used for malicious activities and can also expose users to phishing attempts and malware.
