An IS auditor notes that IDS log entries related to port scanning are not being analyzed. This lack
of analysis will MOST likely increase the risk of success of which of the following attacks?

A.
Denial-of-service

B.
Replay

C.
Social engineering

D.
Buffer overflow

Explanation:
Prior to launching a denial-of-service attack, hackers often use automatic port scanning software
to acquire information about the subject of their attack. A replay attack is simply sending the same
packet again. Social engineering exploits end-uservulnerabilities, and buffer overflow attacks
exploit poorly written code.
