Book Description

Note: Currently, Kindle Magazines doesn't support certain formats (iPad, iPhone, and more) with subscriptions. However, these formats are supported when purchasing individual issues. Until this situation is resolved, 2600 is providing each individual issue here as a Kindle Book and at the Amazon-set individual issue price. We hope to see subscriptions enabled soon on these devices and will keep our readers informed every step of the way.

2600 Magazine is the world's foremost journal on computer hacking and technological manipulation and control. Published by hackers since 1984, 2600 is a true window into the minds of some of today's most creative and intelligent people. The de facto voice of a new generation, this publication has its finger on the pulse of the ever-changing digital landscape. Available for the first time in a digital edition, 2600 continues to bring unique voices to an ever growing international community interested in privacy issues, computer security, and the digital underground.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read and Info 29 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase
After buying this to download onto my Kindle I went to the 2600 website and ordered the whole series for 2011! Some of the articles in this issue include:

- Password Insecurity
- Password Bypassing and Clearing
- How to accept payments anonymously
- Bypassing Javascript Timers
- Virtual Anti-Forensics
- Automatic Usage of Free Wifi
- Transmissions (bluetooth)
- Coding Bots and hacking Wordpress
- Abusing the Cloud

I do prefer the original hard copy as I find it easier to make notes and just pull them out and refer to them. (The original hard copies are about the same size as a Kindle.)

Although published in the USA this is very relevant internationally - as most security issues cut across boundaries. Each publication covers a wide variety of issues and the articles are clear and easy to understand (subject to you having a degree of knowledge in this area). As well as the different articles there is the usual letters page - which is entertaining and along with the classifieds will give you access to other contacts and sources of information.

This is a quarterly issue and if you are interested in this type of security then this is a must. I also like the attitude of the editors who put forward a mature, responsible approach towards security.

Reading this publication will open your eyes to the vulnerabilities of many of your own systems - not just PCs/laptops, the internet and OS but also increasingly wifi and mobiles.

Of all the 2011 issues that I bought they all offer a good balance and all are relevant and each one is as good as the other. I know the publishers/editors are looking at many different ways to distribute this publication (such as PDF) so keep an eye out for different sources of download that may be DRM free!

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT! 22 April 2011
By Leo of BORG - Published on

I'm really glad that the 2600 crew have decided to offer this seminal quarterly as a 'book' for Kindle on Amazon.

Other things: This issue really got the love. It has a magazine's 'table of contents' format -- if you're on the iPad, the closest thing to it, and of the same standard is _The Economist_ app. And they had to make an App to do the same experience.

That this is NOT an App but with much the same user experience is a testament to the 2600 crew. Kudos!

I was so disappointed when I was not able to pick up the recent issue of 2600 on my Kindle app on iPad. I am moving away from deadtree and try to exclusively purchase ebook formats. I am very excited you have decided to make issues available in this way. I look forward to each and every issue and always manage to reap both entertainment and educational information from each issue.

I have been reading 2600 magazine in hard copy for several years. It's hard to find locally and I prefer reading it on my Kindle.I been a techie for most of my adult life and hacking interests me. If you're not hacker or have no interest in hacking of any kind, you may not be interested in 2600.

I've been reading 2600 since I was in highschool, and every issue is packed with more technical knowledge to add to my belt.
