This was one of the most exciting and scary books that I've read in a long time. I'm the owner of one of the largest used book webstores in the nation and it opened my eyes to the hacker's toolkit and how to stop them. Written from the hacker's perspective, it delves into how they can break into a site. I tightened down my firewall greatly after reading this book. You will find yourself looking over your shoulder all the time in public WiFi locations to see who is trying to hack you.
Keeps your attention from cover to cover. This book didn't teach me anything I didn't already know. I guess I should have read the title before I bought the book. I was expecting Computer security auditing and got Hax0r1ng ExP0sed: your page ub3r l33t guide to take you half way to script kiddie! I'm not saying that this book doesn't have any decent information, I am just saying that it's not for the guru.
I could rewrite this entire book in fewer than 40 pages. Hardly a week goes by that CNN does not report a high-profile Web site being defiled or an e-commerce site being penetrated. While most people know why these incidents occurred, Hacking Exposed explains how they occurred and, more important, how to prevent them from occurring.
As they detail the myriad vulnerabilities in different types of systems, the authors provide countermeasures for each of them. Well organized, the book progresses in an orderly fashion. It methodically goes through the process of exploiting a target to penetrate a system--from identification and enumeration to actual penetration. The authors provide detailed instructions and explanations for many security features and flaws in Unix, Linux, Windows, NetWare, routers, firewalls, and more.
Topics covered include state-of-the-art computer and network penetration, as viewed by both the attacker and the defender; remote system identification; vulnerability identification; war dialers; firewall circumvention; and denial-of-service attacks.
An appendix explores the security characteristics of Windows Some may argue that books such as this one only serve to motivate and educate hackers. The truth is that hackers are already aware of the book's contents. This book is designed for system administrators and managers who need to know their systems' risks and vulnerabilities and how to address them. When they are done with this book, system administrators and managers will be familiar with such critical topics as back channels, port redirection, banner grabbing, and buffer overflows.
Hacking Exposed is a must-read for anyone who wants to know what is really happening on their network I am a senior engineer for managed network security operations, which includes conducting vulnerability assessments against client networks. I read this second edition to gain insights into ways to better assess a client's security posture, and also to understand some of the attacks I see while monitoring intrusion detection systems. Of the books I've read, Hacking Exposed remains the best guide to systematically assess and if necessary compromise hosts.
By understanding black hat methods, defenders can better prepare for the tidal wave of exploits washing upon the networking shore. While explaining how to penetrate systems, the authors spend a fair amount of time explaining how those systems work. From a system administration standpoint, these descriptions are pure gold.
Since the authors are fairly operating system-agnostic, they show the pros and cons of Microsoft, UNIX, and Novell products in the harsh light of improved security. For example, the discussion of file handles, file descriptors, and signals in chapter 8 "Hacking UNIX" helped me understand a little bit of UNIX's guts, while giving a security spin to file system operations.
Thankfully, Hacking Exposed gives Microsoft operating systems plenty of attention. While recognizing that many of us dislike administering these systems, the authors provide helpful and solid chapters on Windows NT and Windows They also demonstrate many ways to use Windows as an attack platform. They convincingly show that if a scan can be performed in Linux, someone has developed a similar tool for Windows.
My favorite issues in the book involved describing Windows rootkits a recent development and UNIX loadable kernel modules. On the negative side, I felt the book lost steam in section IV Software Hacking , spending too much time repeating earlier material.
Also, unless you're a relative newbie to security, you may become bored with the litany of historic deficiencies and required patches discussed in section IV. Overall, the second edition of Hacking Exposed remains a must-read book for security professionals. With those foundations in place, it's time to learn how black hats operate. If you're a system administrator, you'll learn how to fortify your network assets.
If you're an intrusion detector, you'll learn what to watch for. If you're a pen-tester, you'll learn how to compromise hosts. Who could ask for more? Go to Amazon. Back to top. Get to Know Us.
