Hi guys,

Sorry I keep picking holes in these questions but, SW318 asks how an attacker can get information from multiple VLAN's and says the answer is MAC address flooding?! In what universe is that right?

MAC address flooding generates massive amounts of frames with invalid source addresses and in doing so causes the CAM tables to overflow and age out current valid addresses for hosts. In no way does this mean that the attacker suddenly starts receiving frames from all other VLANs?

If the attacked wanted to achieve this the only option would be VLAN hopping through each individual VLAN or by negotiating a trunk?


Please check new explanation that was added to this question.
