Flaws in the 3 common Networking Topologies

What are the major flaws in Ring , Bus and Star topologies

Ring Topology

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.

Bus Topology

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.

Star Topology

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.
