Good book, but little news,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Hacking Exposed Linux, 3rd Edition (Paperback)
I had this on preorder, so I got it the moment it came out. If you are new to Linux security, this book is excellent. It talks about all the things you need to be aware of, and how to protect your systems. I would most definitely recommend it. Unfortunately for me, I knew most of this already. It did have some tidbits I liked, and the security recommendations are most definitely sound. I give it 4 stars, because I had expected more about hacking and less about securing.

You were generous in your rating on this one, as I might have given it 3 stars. Took a serious look at it a couple of months back, then put it back on the shelf. If you want to really get into the meat of it, check the "Linux Server Hacks" and "Linux Desktop Hacks" series from O'Reilly Media.
You're right, though: the security recommendations are sound for the most part.
