Got a spam mail & checking it out. Variables, links...fill in the blanks, anyone?
I had been planning for delivering a training. And I had to decide on a subject. So, here it is - Botnets.
Topics I will cover here:
+ What is a Botnet + Top Botnets + Why Botnet? + Elements + Features + Protocols used + Categories + Applications of an Attack + Elements of an Attack + Stages of an Attack + Detecting a Bot + Defending against Botnets
I sat for the CISSP exam on May 16, 2009. The exam was not easy, but I was prepared. And had the positive energy to complete it successfully. It was a long exam - 6 hours. Equally mentally exhaustive as much as physically demanding. Add to that the constant slight buzzing sound (read noise!!) of something in the hall. All these in place, I took the whole 6 hours & completed & checked, rechecked the question paper & checked, rechecked the bubbles in the answer sheet. Someone must be wondering why would I check & recheck the question paper. Please read on to know why.
