Which type of security threat would be responsible if a spreadsheet add-on disables the local software firewall?
- Trojan horse
- brute-force attack
- buffer overflow
A Trojan horse is software that does something harmful, but is hidden in legitimate software code. A denial of service (DoS) attack results in interruption of network services to users, network devices, or applications. A brute-force attack commonly involves trying to access a network device. A buffer overflow occurs when a program attempts to store more data in a memory location than it can hold.
