I reviewed this book a few months ago and gave it 1 star as I was really upset about the lack of instructions for the Metasploitable labs. I have to correct my review to a 4 stars because Mr. Nestler saw the review and wrote explaining that he did not recieved my message and pointed me to a web site that had the document I was looking for. I had previously searched that same site with no luck, but it was updated. So to make things fair I correct my review to reflect the author's actions towards solving my problem. What follows is my original review:

"I bought this lab book a few weeks back because the text book is a great read (5 stars) and thought that the lab book will be a great asset. Unfortunately the book has no instructions on how to set the Metasploitable labs so you have a great deal of labs that can't be done. All Windows labs are ok. Even without instructions if you know Server 2003 administration you can set DNS, ftp and all the other things required, not the same with the Metasploitable machine.

The book has a website for extra material (also an excelent source of aditional material) that was supposed to include setup instructions... it didn't. The instruction are only for instructors. I tried contacting the publisher with no success as I'm no instructor. I contacted both Mr Conklin and Mr Nestler. Mr Conklin claimed he didn't have any material regarding the lab setup (something extremely strange... you were the co-author, so I wonder why you don't have a copy of the work you created) and Mr Nestler didn't even reply to my message."

Format: Paperback
While the labs are informative and well written, there are several problems:
Lab machine set up instructions are inaccurate and hard to obtain.
Many lab exercises contain references to software that the lab set up instructions do not correctly reference. The links are either inaccurate, the software you are told to install may actually not be correct or you may not be given any indication of what you need at all.
The labs occasionally contain instructions that simply do not work without unspecified intermediate steps that the student is left to figure out. For example, uploading a file via ftp to the Windows 2003 server without ever enabling Write permissions in IIS.
There is NO ERRATA for the lab manual. There is a site for it, but absolutely no entries in it at all and the book has quite a few errors.
The operating systems used are dated. Sorry, but XP and 2003? And do you have any idea how hard it is to get SP1?

Needs a lot of improvement to get 5 stars.
