Outdated

I finished reading this book in two hours time. My first thought after finishing it was "is this the book I spent $12.21 + shipping?":

1. The book's edition is 2003. This was when Windows XP was available in the market. The information presented in the book is about Win98. Even the screenshots are from Internet Explorer 4. There are even references to Win95 and NT.
2. The book presents how to use the so-called "hacking programs". If you can speak English (at least you are reading these lines), I think a button on a program interface labeled "Start Server" gives you enough information about what that particular button will do. This means, you will not have to read something like 30 pages out of 139.
3. The book gives you the source code of "I love you" virus and explains briefly the functions and subs on the code. Again, if you can speak English, you can perfectly understand a call in the function saying regcreate (create an entry in the registry) listadriv (list a drive) etc. There is no need to speak about what to source code does. This information covers about 10 pages. So, together with item 2, you do not need 40 pages out of 139.
4. "I love you" virus (a.k.a. LoveLetter) was in effect in the year 2000. Then there was Melissa and other virii & trojans around upto 2003. The book mentions none of them.
5. The book only gives the explanation of the LoveLetter virus. This is a macro virus. What about other types of viruses? There is no single line about "Terminate but Stay Resident (TSR)". How can you speak about virii without mentioning TSR? This is the only explanation why people do not see the virii present in their computers when they check the running processes.
6. The book is totally about Windows Operating System.

The book is ok. It's great for beginners and it gives a quick background on various hacking subjects. People will probably expect the book to be an in-depth book but at 150 or so pages, it is just not possible. This book won't teach you HOW TO HACK -- I think it's illegal for any book to give step by step instructions on how to hack. Instead of instructions, the books offers background and "educational" information on how hacking works, how viruses work, etc.

Overall, I found the book very informative especially if you are a beginner. If you are a hacking expert I do not recommend buying this book. But if, you are like me, who is totally clueless on how hacking works then this book is good. It took about 2-3 weeks for me to get the book. I'm not sure why the other posters said they didn't get theirs, perhaps it's a mail problem? I'm sure Amazon.com will not sell a book if they're not going to ship it. I give this book 4 stars. If there are more pages to it, I'll give it 5.

Before purchase of this book, I too had read the negative reviews with no fulfillment, never got the book, its a scam kind of feedback. Yes this book is for beginners and was never advertised as anything more from what I can tell? As an individual who represents the Hacker Community from the usual base of ignorance,this is a non-objective first timers look at Hacker methodology, not a cut and dry way to hack?(good or bad)

Take it for what it is... a way for the curious to understand more of this often misunderstood world. Got the book timely, support was significant...enough said?

My quest to understand hacking as a subject following months of being fraustrated by hacking attempts carried out on my server, led me to the website, "hackersbook.com" where I tried to get a copy of the "hacker's black book". My copy never arrived so I phoned the US number and the man on the other end adviced me to wait another week while he sends out a new copy; like the first one, that replacement copy never arrived. A second phone call was made but this was to a dead line or so I thought. My next attempt was to go through the telephone company to find out why I couldn't get connected when the lady I was speaking with told me that the phone number I was dialling rejected calls from my number. If you find yourself caught up in this trap, call the company that debited your credit card, explain everything to them and they will refund you your money. That is exactly how I got my money back.
NO STAR FOR THIS NON-EXISTING BOOK!
This book is given a rating of one star because the amazon review page kept displaying an error every time I tried to post my review with that section left blank.

Allot of the people i see on here haven't been able to even get the book to begin with. However I recived the book, and I was dissappointed, greatly. After months of trying to learn about the subject to see if i wanted to progress beyond just programming, and this book gave me very little to work with as far as learning anything, so in short, go get a real book about network hacking to see what they do.

I thought it was gonna be an interesting book with some hints regarding hacking. Unfortunately it contains only links to web pages for cracking programs! Don't bother buying this book.

Hello you guys in Germany and Switzerland.
I received my products without any problems (USA).
The reason may be, that Mr. Walter Voell is not responsible for this ENGLISH book (the delivery and the support). I ordered the book (+cd) at [...] No problems...
The book is perfect for beginners (Before reading I've been a "lamer".). It's written as an interesting report. Easy to read. Sure, you have to read more than this little book, to become a good hacker (or security expert). But after reading this book I know what I have to do know...
And hey: Know my computer is much safe than before...
