Here the work is an excellent and perspicacious primer at the script kiddie level for those new to hacking, but with a solid background in application and system architecture. It is an eye opener for those not otherwise engaged in security, and an entree to those interested in moving into penetration and security testing.
There are a good deal of references to outside utilities to start to build one's toolkit for all sorts of nefarious activities. There is little if any tutorial on how to use any of the tools, or how to glean the significance of the data being presented by the tool, but if the reader has the proper background, there will be a lot of forehead smacking when you see what these tools can reveal and exploit when used properly.
I consider myself an IT expert, but I never really got into the whole security thing other than making sure my firewall was working. This book opened my eyes. There are so many ways that hackers can try and attack your PC or server.
The book starts with some basic terminology and then moves into the different areas like password cracking, windows hacking and wireless hacking etc. In each chapter you will learn about the tools and techniques that hackers will try to use to get access to your system.
In short, if you want to know how hackers will try and get into your system read this book!
When I first heard about Dr. Ali Jahangiri's book, the title immediately caught my attention. Things change quickly in the security world and the author of the book, have done a tremendous job at making a great thing by taking the new attacks techniques and countermeasures.
Even if you already have experience in the security field, the new and updated information in this book are worth the investment.
The book is lacking detail on more on how an attacker initiates an attack. However, I found the book a great overview of product out there for Windows /Linux users.
If you are looking for a book to let you know how attackers get into you network - then this is the book for you. It might be a bit over the top for a novice users, more for an intermediate linux user , or advanced linux users.
