Non Wireless Attacks This lesson covers non wireless attacks. Non wireless attacks are actual attacks against a network. One such attack is a Denial of Service (DoS) which is an attack on services and resources and blocks host generating traffic. There is also a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS). These are harder to fix as multiple hosts are performing DoS. Another type of attack is a Man in the Middle Attack. In this kind of attack, the attacker listens, captures and impersonates a user which allows them to pass on false certificates and capture data that is out on an HTTPS web page.
