    DoS attacks

    Please help me in resolving this question. Seems my team has many answers to which there are only two correct ones as per CISCO.

    Question:

    In which TWO devices would you expect DoS attacks from the Internet in the Enterprise Edge Functional Area? Choose Two:

    a. VPN/IPSec
    b. Public Servers
    c. WAN Module
    d. Database Servers
    e. Web Servers

    It depends on what's available from the Internet. In theory anything you hook up to the Internet is susceptible to a DoS.

    Also depends what kind of a DoS you have in mind, whether be resource depletion or application crash. The latter does not require multiple computers on high bandwidth connection, however it does require one to be able to exploit an overflow of sorts in that particular app. In that sense, anything connected to the web is susceptible to a DoS.
