UDP Flooding
Vulnerability Attack
Bandwidth Flooding
Connection Flooding

Correct Answer : Option (D) :   Connection Flooding

Explanation : In Vulnerability attack, the attacker exploits the vulnerable control points of the network to deny access to the victims. In Bandwidth flooding, the attacker intentionally uses up all the bandwidth by flooding the victim with a deluge of packets and makes sure that the victim can’t use any bandwidth. In UDP flooding, too many UDP packets are sent by the attacker to the victim at random ports.
