In asking the below question regarding MFA authentication and what it prevents against in the context of Salesforce, I'm not sure I understand why this was marked as opinion based.

Particularly because this question was derived from a topic on the Identity and Access designer architect exam. Out of the options provided, the Salesforce exam designers apparently thought 3 of the attacks were more likely to be prevented than the others.

What types of attacks does Salesforce Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) prevent?

If this is opinion based because of the better vs. defined answer I suppose the closure makes sense, but hard to think the exam answers could be argued as a matter of opinion.

I agree there is a factual basis which can be used to answer which types of attack are not protected. I have therefore reopened your question.
