About the Author

Stuart McClure, CNE, CCSE, Global CTO for McAfee/Intel, is responsible for a nearly $3B consumer and corporate security products business. During his tenure at McAfee, Stuart has also held the General Manager position for the Security Management Business for McAfee/Intel, which enabled all McAfee corporate security products to be operationalized, managed, and measured. Alongside those roles, Stuart has also run an elite team of good guy hackers inside McAfee called TRACE that discovered new vulnerabilities and emerging threats. Previously, Stuart helped run security at the largest healthcare company in the U.S., Kaiser Permanente. In 1999, Stuart was also the original founder of Foundstone, Inc., a global consulting and products company, which was acquired by McAfee in 2004.

Joel Scambray, CISSP, is Managing Principal with Citigal as well as Co-Founder of Consciere LLC. He was previously chief strategy officer for Leviathan Security Group, an information security consultancy. He was a senior director at Microsoft Corporation, where he led Microsoft's online services security efforts for three years before joining the Windows platform and services division to focus on security technology architecture. Before joining Microsoft, Joel co-founded security software and services startup Foundstone, Inc., and helped lead it to acquisition by McAfee. He has spoken widely on information security at forums including Black Hat, I-4, and The Asia Europe Meeting (ASEM). Joel is the co-author of all five editions of Hacking Exposed and lead author of Hacking Exposed: Windows, currently in its third edition, and Hacking Exposed: Web Applications, currently in its second edition.

George Kurtz is also an internationally recognized security expert, author, entrepreneur, and speaker. He has almost twenty years of experience in the security space and has helped hundreds of large organizations and government agencies around the world tackle the most demanding security problems. His entrepreneurial background and ability to commercialize nascent technologies has enabled him to drive innovation throughout his career by identifying market trends and correlating them with customer feedback, resulting in rapid growth for the businesses he has run. In 2011 George relinquished his role as McAfee’s Worldwide Chief Technology Officer to his co-author and raised $26M in venture capital to create CrowdStrike. During his tenure as McAfee’s CTO, Kurtz was responsible for driving the integrated security architectures and platforms across the entire McAfee portfolio. Kurtz also helped drive the acquisition strategy that allowed McAfee to grow from $1b in revenue in 2007 to over $2.5b in 2011. In one of the largest tech M&A deals in 2011, Intel (INTC) acquired McAfee for nearly $8b.

Format: Paperback
The first version of Hacking Exposed came out in 1999. The book was a game changer that made penetration and vulnerability testing available to the masses. Needless to say that in the ensuing 13 years, there has been a huge amount of change in the world of information security.

With the release of Hacking Exposed 7: Network Security Secrets & Solutions, authors Stuart McClure, Joel Scambray and George Kurtz (along with over 10 contributing authors) provide an up to date version to the original classic.

The book builds on the fundamentals of the first edition, and does include essentials of hacking on topics such as enumeration, foot printing, scanning, operating system detection and a lot more.

The latest edition gets into current threats and details the new menace of APT (advanced persistent threats), embedded hacking, database hacking, and significant coverage of mobile devices.

The book also spends more time on dealing with countermeasures to the various threats and vulnerabilities detailed.

At over 700 pages, Hacking Exposed 7: Network Security Secrets & Solutions, the book covers every core area of interest to penetration testers.

Written in a lucid and easy to read style, the updated version remains the best book on the topic.

Overall an excellent book and easy to understand. I have always loved the Hacking Exposed books. The books are designed to be an organized, easy reference for anyone. The books provide detailed explanation of different types of attacks and then go on to explain the countermeasures for each. It makes a great resource for my CEH preperation.

I'm in vulnerability assessment and pen testing field started last year. I seldom buy computer books these day but this is one of the exceptions.
Company paid $5000 for my SANS 560 course but not willing to spend the money to buy this book so I got it for myself.
I'm still reading it and all I can said is, go get yours.

I have versions 5 and 6 of this book. There wasn't a lot of "NEW" info in my opinion.... Just restated in different ways. Its still one of my favorite titles though.
