Denial of Service and Session Hacking
This course is included in our On-demand training solution.
Denial of Service and Distributed Denial of Service attacks are common methods used by hackers to disrupt service to networks and to corporate environments. Session hijacking is used by hackers as a method to take over sessions after a user has successfully authenticated with a server. This course examines how DoS and DDoS attacks, along with Bots and Botnets, disrupt corporate environments. And it examines session hijacking and the methods that are used to both accomplish it, and to prevent it. This course also assists students who are preparing for the EC Council’s Ethical Hacking and Countermeasures (CEHv6) exam 312-50.
