Flaws in the 3 common Networking Topologies
The major flaws with a ring topology is that if a device goes down or a cable is broken, then data will no longer be passed.
With a bus topology, all devices are connected to a single cable, often called the backbone. A major flaw in the bus topology is that it can’t handle a large amount of data.
With a star topology, all devices are connected with their own cable to a central switch/hub . Every packet is sent through this switch, which means if the switch goes down the network will no longer work.
Are these flaws exploitable ?
Maybe not . But in the later articles we will see how we can exploit some not-so-common flaws in networks.
