However, the author is German and the laws in Germany are restrictive against redistributing "hacker code." This means the code samples in the book are usually incomplete, with everything but the exploit mechanism included. Personally for me this was a big drawback, as I find reading source code the best way to learn techniques like these.
i think if the book detail more about how to exploit that things it will be excellent
I read this book after reading TAOSSA and was very impressed. TAOSSA methodically details everything that can go wrong in a program (see Chapter 6). A Bug Hunter's Diary is the perfect followup, showing you the thought process behind bug hunting. After you pick up this book, you'll want to start searching for your own bugs - and you'll likely find some too!
But all in all, it's an excelent book for security professionals/researchers and web application penetration testers.
