Format: Paperback
Aside from any moral qualms about the legitimacy of such a book (of which I remain neutral) this is clearly not written by an 'authority' on this subject, so any serious hacker would find it no more dangerous than halitosis in a gas station.

Lots of waffle and posturing. Not convinced he actually understands the more advanced 'code' snippets he introduces (e.g. he manages to confuse a c 'header' with a 'library', also why would any serious security hacker write a keylogger in pascal!!!? Many parts are REALLY badly explained and have basic errors for a 2nd edition (see p356 - the first Xor table has a basic error in third row). Several bits of the text look suspiciously familiar (i.e. possibly cut and pasted from unacknowledge sources, which might explain the inconsistencies).

I gave two (generous) consolation stars because (a) the breadth is to be commended (at least he tried), and (b) the fact that you can still pick things up interesting snippets from this book; so long as you suspend the urge to yell WRONG! at it, and (c) Contrary to the previous reviewer who gave it 5 stars (a 'friend' no doubt) this book states on the last page that it is aimed at 'beginners'.

Unimpressed...

I am more than upset with the author of this book. All the material can be found easily by searching the Internet and by doing a search at [...] The zip files that are mentioned in the book are corrupted. Not only that but when I reported the problem to the author, I got nothing from him -- that was almost a year ago, I am not sure about the files as of Oct 1, 2008.

I don't recommend this book -- well, I do. If you have a fireplace and you are out of wood. Other than that, save your money and search for other more serious books online.

Outdated and unoriginal material coupled with a poor writing style make this book a waste of time for anyone serious about studying computer security and hacking. Ankit Fadia is a joke. Do not waste your time or money!

Format: Paperback
Updated edition of The Unofficial Guide to Ethical Hacking, which is well known for being a published work plagiarizing other works to the tune of 1/4 to 1/3 of its pages. The wise reader seeking to learn about hacking, ethics, and meshing them together will skip this book, as with all books written by unethical authors.
