What is a possible result of this activity?

An attacker installs a rogue switch that sends superior BPDUs on your network. What is a possible result of this activity?The BPDU guard feature is designed to allow network designers to keep the active network topology predictable. BPDU guard is used to protect the switched network from the problems that may be caused by the receipt of BPDUs on ports that should not be receiving them. The receipt of unexpected BPDUs may be accidental or may be part of an unauthorized attempt to add a switch to the network. BPDU guard is best deployed toward user-facing ports to prevent rogue switch network extensions by an attacker.
