Format: Hardcover
The book is very simple and any Linux user with a modicum of experience knows far beyond what this book teaches. First four chapters are a joke. There are around 10 labs on TCP fingerprinting with different tools (Xprobe, Sprint, Hydra, nmap). They provide no more info than the man page that comes with the software. Completely unchallenging and utterly boring. Seriously, there's a whole chapter on banner grabbing, which is basically "telnet ip_address" and see what the server answer. Hell, there's a lab on pinging a remote computer and using netcraft.com!

Not to mention the book doesn't even mention common attacks such as CSRF, XSS or SQL Injection!

I have read many Security books and this one goes Above and Beyond all the
other books. All the Computer Security books I have read and seen teach
theory and this one does that and then he shows you the proof in the pudding
as he walks you through his Virtual Labs.

If you have dealt in the theory of Information Security and also would like to do some thing practical, this is one of the books that you should have. Since the practical tools, and their location on the web are continuously changing, the book should have a web site, where updates should be followed regularly. There is a web page for errors and/or changes . But that is not the point I would like to make, a live dynamic page for supporting the book. I have recommended the book in my cryptography/Network security course.
