It is clear that English is not the first language of the author, so some of the writing is in the idiom and grammar of his first language. It could have profited from an English editor, but the level of writing does not take any of the value from the book. I think we are all used to working with talented people who express themselves more fluently in another language, but that doesn't prevent us from appreciating the value of their work.

Here the work is an excellent and perspicacious primer at the script kiddie level for those new to hacking, but with a solid background in application and system architecture. It is an eye opener for those not otherwise engaged in security, and an entree to those interested in moving into penetration and security testing.

There are a good deal of references to outside utilities to start to build one's toolkit for all sorts of nefarious activities. There is little if any tutorial on how to use any of the tools, or how to glean the significance of the data being presented by the tool, but if the reader has the proper background, there will be a lot of forehead smacking when you see what these tools can reveal and exploit when used properly.

Dr. Jahangiri's book is and excellent resource for all those with an interest in computer security. It doesn't matter if you are a security novice or a professional IT expert with security training this book will have something for you.

I consider myself an IT expert, but I never really got into the whole security thing other than making sure my firewall was working. This book opened my eyes. There are so many ways that hackers can try and attack your PC or server.

The book starts with some basic terminology and then moves into the different areas like password cracking, windows hacking and wireless hacking etc. In each chapter you will learn about the tools and techniques that hackers will try to use to get access to your system.

In short, if you want to know how hackers will try and get into your system read this book!

There are a handful of books that should be "must-reads" for anyone responsible for computer or network security and this is one of them. Learning the information in this book will help you learn current attacks and hacking techniques and develop effective countermeasures to protect your network. Hands down, Live Hacking should be on every network or security administrator's desk for quick reference.

When I first heard about Dr. Ali Jahangiri's book, the title immediately caught my attention. Things change quickly in the security world and the author of the book, have done a tremendous job at making a great thing by taking the new attacks techniques and countermeasures.

Even if you already have experience in the security field, the new and updated information in this book are worth the investment.

Hi,

The book is lacking detail on more on how an attacker initiates an attack. However, I found the book a great overview of product out there for Windows /Linux users.

If you are looking for a book to let you know how attackers get into you network - then this is the book for you. It might be a bit over the top for a novice users, more for an intermediate linux user , or advanced linux users.

cheers
Carlo S

Really good for reading, easy and short messages. If you study all the tools the writer says you will become a good hacker, hope white hat.

This book is not a bad lite intro to a few different tools and if you have no experience in the subject matter its not a bad read. The book title claims to be "The Ultimate Guide to Hacking Techniques and Countermeasures for Ethical Hackers & IT Security Experts." Sadly, the title is way off base. There are some decent examples of using some common tools but this book is not going to be an easy button to popping your first shell. The book is 185 pages which is fairly lite for this type of a text. I can tell you for our classes our book that we use for just the recon phase is over 230 (full-size) pages. If you are looking for an intro book this book isn't bad (but it isn't great either). If you can buy it used or at a discount rate give it a look.
