comment Firewall Throughputs
These terms are basic networking terms and not security terms.

comment What information can be gained given only a phone number?
What about the "burner phone" concept popularized in TV and movies? Pre-pay with cash and no info can be gleaned. Are you asking about failures of process or the normal phone company processes? I think this question needs to be fleshed out a little more.

comment File Deletion & Recovery
This is a homework question. We can help with those, but you need to explain what you tried, what you do understand, and then specifically what you do not understand. We will not do your homework for you. If you edit this question to include those things, we will consider re-opening it.

comment How to Man-in-the-middle a whole network?
Hellreaver's problem is that he can only get the data from a single host. He's asking how to spoof more hosts.

comment How to Man-in-the-middle a whole network?
Please read the man page for arpspoof: -t target Specify a particular host to ARP poison (if not specified, all hosts on the LAN).

comment What is a “roving” backdoor?
"The agents tell him that several nights earlier he accessed the computer networking system, which allows access to military industrial systems. Young Fischer denies the charge, and we see via flashbacks that it was actually older Fischer who got through security and installed a "roving backdoor" to the systems which the government still cannot remove." terminator.wikia.com/wiki/Episode_209:_Complications

This is completely opinion-based. You will have to perform your own market analysis.

comment Definition of security incident
again, that depends on your policy - if you say that you launch IR when you deem something to be an incident, then you must, or explain why you didn't

comment Definition of security incident
Consider this: a port scan on an externally facing machine is so common, that I would not consider it an incident in my organization. But a port scan on an internal server would. A port scan on an external machine from an IP block that should have been banned by the perimeter firewall suddenly is an incident. You need to define your terms for your organization.

comment Definition of security incident
You define what an incident is for your organization. It's all about the risks and the level of protection you require.

comment CV to a Suspicious Professor
The info on your CVs is typically public information, so I'm not sure there is a privacy or ID theft risk.

comment How does LastPass know that Microsoft.com uses the password for Live.com?
Either way, there is no InfoSec impact. If it was HTML or HTTP, then the question should be asked on another site, like SuperUser, or such.

comment what is the most secure hash for virus definition databases in 2015?
Perhaps not an "attack" per se, but confusion in the database causing false positives.

comment How does LastPass know that Microsoft.com uses the password for Live.com?
This is a vendor-support question, not an InfoSec question.

You can specify the netblock as the "victim".

comment Difference between brute-force and dictionary-based in the mitigation process of the IPSs
@SilverlightFox I'm very familiar with this. I'm asking if the Asker knows and how that understanding affects the answers he expects. A dictionary attack is by definition a subset of a brute-force attack.
