Cis 542 assignment 1 | Information Systems homework help

You are a manager of a Web development team for a fictional international delivery service. Please give your fictional business a name, and provide a sentence or two of background information about the company. Your team maintains all of the e-commerce servers, including creating and updating all of the content on the Web pages and the database that stores customer information. These are mission critical servers. 

You have 4 clustered nodes that are used for load balancing. These nodes are located in 4 cities around the globe. Two are in the USA, one is in Europe, and one is in Asia.  

The choices of cities and countries is yours: 

Node1: City___________Country___________

Node2: City___________Country___________

Node3: City___________Country___________

Node4: City___________Country___________

Each site is interconnected, and gets regular updates from the home office, located in a different city & country that you will choose.   

A TCPDUMP is scheduled daily so the team can analyze real time traffic using WireShark. A team member alerts you to a potential problem found in <NODE OF YOUR CHOICE> capture. There is an alarming amount of activities from port 40452, which shows a redirect to the index.php page instead of the login.phppage. It appears this node has been compromised with a SQL Injection Attack. You rely on these sites so you are unable to shut down all e-commerce activities.

  1. Explain the immediate steps you would instruct your team to use to contain the attack, but also to maintain the service to the e-commerce site.
