Windows Advanced Firewall. This may be the first time you have made a modification to the firewall on your computer. The first rule will block all ICMP traffic. This will effectively prevent you from using the ping command to send ICMP packets to other computers. You will use a command prompt to verify the rule was effective.
The second rule will block all outgoing Port 80 traffic. Port 80 is traditionally associated with Web traffic (HTTP). Once you create and enable the rule, all outgoing Port 80 traffic will be blocked. You will use a Web browser to verify the rule was effective, however, secure Web traffic (HTTPS) running over Port 443 will still be accessible
Submit your answer the following questions:
- How could blocking all ICMP traffic protect you?
- Could you still access some websites with your Port 80 rule enabled? Why?
- Why would you want to allow incoming (not outgoing) Port 443, but block incoming Port 80?
- Could malware rename itself in order to get through a firewall? Why would this work?
Your well-written paper should meet the following requirements:
- Be three to five pages in length
- Contain an illustrative table or a diagram created from properly cited external references
- Include three credible external references in addition to the textbook
- Formatted according to APA writing guidelines.
