Title: CompTIA Security+ SY0-601 Domain 1: Attacks, Threats, and Vulnerabilities

CompTIA Security SY0-601 Domain 1 Attacks,
Threats, and Vulnerabilities
About Security SY0-601 CompTIA Security is a
worldwide certification that verifies the
fundamental skills required to execute basic
security activities and build a career in
information security. CompTIA Security SY0-601
is the latest version of the Security
certification. The very first security
certification that IT professionals can obtain is
CompTIA Security, and it is the best entry-level
certification. The main reason why CompTIAs
Security(Plus) certification is such an
excellent entry-level certification is It
provides the fundamental information that each
cybersecurity professional must have. Its areas
are based on a straightforward premise a major
emphasis on practical skills. After passing the
certification you can show that you are prepared
to deal with a real-world scenario and It also
provides a platform for intermediate-level
cybersecurity positions.
  • The latest version of Security SY0-601  have 5
  • Domain 1.0 Attacks, Threats, and Vulnerabilities
  • Domain 2.0 Architecture and Design (21)
  • Domain 3.0 Implementation (25)
  • Domain 4.0 Operations and Incident Response
  • Domain 5.0 Governance, Risk, and Compliance
  • Attacks, Threats, and Vulnerabilities
  • The first domain of CompTIA Security (plus),
    SY0-601 addresses a fundamental requirement of
    every data security expert the ability to detect
    and comprehend various threats, attack methods,
    and vulnerabilities that might be exploited. The
    weightage of this domain is 24. In this domain,
    we learn about
  • Social Engineering Techniques and Type
  • Malware Based Attack
  • Threat Actors, Vectors, and Threat Intelligence
  • Explain Penetration Testing Techniques
  • Explain Security Concerns with Type of
  • 1. Social Engineering Techniques and Type In
    this lesson, we will learn all about social
    engineering and its techniques. We discuss
    various principles of social engineering like
  • Familiarity
  • Social Proof
  • Authority and Intimidation
  • Scarcity and Urgency
  • impersonation and trust
  • We also cover Impersonation and Trust It is a
    common technique of social engineering. Trying to
    pretend to be someone else is known as
    impersonation. After that we learn different
    types of social engineering
  • Phishing
  • Smishing
  • Vishing
  • Spear Phishing
  • Dumpster Diving
  • Shoulder Surfing
  • Tailgating
  • Whaling
  • 2. Malware Based Attack Malicious code is one of
    the most common dangers to devices today. As a
    cybersecurity specialist, you will almost
    certainly have faced undesirable malware
    attacking your computers. Youll be better
    equipped to fix affected systems or prevent
    malware if you classify the various forms of
    malware and recognize the indications of
    infection.In this part, we will discuss
    different types of Malware and how it works
  • Ransomware
  • Trojans
  • Worms
  • PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs)
  • Bots
  • Rootkit
  • Backdoor
  • Then we learn some different Malware Indicators,
    Sandbox Execution, Resource Consumption, and File
  • 3. Threat Actors, Vectors, and Threat
    Intelligence You should be able to describe
    defensive and attack tactics in order to conduct
    a successful security analysis. Your primary
    responsibility will most likely be protecting
    assets, but in order to do so, youll need to be
    able to describe threat actors strategies,
    techniques, and processes. You should also be
    able to discover trusted sources of threat
    intelligence and research as the threat landscape
    evolves.In this lesson we will learn
  • Threat Actors and Vectors.
  • Threat Intelligence.
  • 1. Threat Actor and Vectors In this part, we
    will discuss types of threat actors Insider
    Threat Actors, Hackers, Script Kiddies, Hacker
    Team, State Actors, Advanced Persistent Threats,
    and Criminal Syndicates. We also cover Attributes
    of Threat Actors. Inside this, we discuss 
    Internal/External, Intent/Motivation, Level of
    Sophistication/Capability, Resources/Funding.Also
    , we understand Attack Vectors and how attack
    vectors help threat actors to gain access to a
    protected system. Inside Attack vector, we also
    learn Direct access, Removable media, Email,
    Remote and wireless, Social chain, and Cloud.
  • Threat Intelligence In this part we explain
    threat intelligence, work of threat intelligence,
    we learn, Threat Intelligence Source and Research
    SourceIn Threat Intelligence Source we discuss
    Open-source intelligence (OSINT),
    Closed/proprietary, Vulnerability databases,
    Public/private information sharing centers, Dark
    web, Indicators of compromise, and Threat maps.
  • In Research Source we discuss
  • Vendor websites
  • Vulnerability feeds
  • Conferences
  • Academic journals
  • Request for Comments (RFC)
  • Local industry groups
  • Social media
  • Threat feeds
  • Adversary tactics, techniques, and procedures
  • 4. Explain Penetration Testing Techniques
    Penetration testing is a form of evaluation that
    uses well-known strategies and procedures to try
    to break into a system.
  • In this part we understand Penetration Testing,
    inside this, we discuss
  • Known environment
  • Unknown environment
  • Partially known environment
  • Rules of engagement
  • Lateral movement
  • Privilege escalation
  • Persistence
  • Cleanup
  • Bug bounty
  • Pivoting
  • We understand Passive and active reconnaissance
  • Drones
  • War flying
  • War driving
  • Footprinting
5. Explain Security Concerns with Type of
Vulnerability You must be aware of the many
types of vulnerabilities that impact computer
systems and networks. You should be able to
analyze and describe the potential consequences
of vulnerabilities in order to prioritize
evaluation and remediation actions where they are
most required. In this lesson, we discuss
Software Vulnerabilities and Patch Management,
Zero-Day, Third-Party Risk, Improper or Weak
Patch Management, Impacts of Vulnerabilities. Lea
