Product Description

About the Author

Johnny Long is a Christian by grace, a professional hacker by trade, a pirate by blood, a ninja in training, a security researcher and author. He can be found lurking at his website (http://johnny.ihackstuff.com). He is the founder of Hackers For Charity(http://ihackcharities.org), an organization that provides hackers with job experience while leveraging their skills for charities that need those skills. Kevin Mitnick (Technical Editor) is the most famous computer hacker in the world. Since his first arrest in 1981, at age 17, he has spent nearly half his adult life either in prison or as a fugitive. He has been the subject of three books and his alleged 1982 hack into NORAD inspired the movie War Games. Since his plea-bargain release in 2000, he says he has reformed and is devoting his talents to helping computer security.

Format: Paperback
I think a lot of people could pass the book by just from looking at the title.

I bought this book around a year ago having suffered from having my personal email accounts etc hacked. I wish I had read this book before hand.

Anyone who has a presence on the Internet, from an email account to a blog should really try and read this book. We can buy security applications to protect ourselves from virii and mal-ware, we can buy security hardware to protect ourselves from Internet based attackers from getting into our systems - but what can we do to secure ourselves from people armed with coathangers and wet towels?

That last sentence isnt a joke, the book describes how a security system was breached with these items. It also discusses things that we dont really consider to be personal information and how to safe guard ourselves from ID scammers etc.

Its a very interesting book and I would recommend it to anyone from a normal person who has ever thought "is this secure?" to a security analyst. I also applaud the author for his very upfront manner and attitudes to this area in security

Format: Paperback
For those people interested in seeing what it takes to be a physical penetration testers, then this, exceptionally easy to read and understand book, is the book for you. It is a simple, enthralling read which really does show you how simple it is to get into places where people don't want you to be.

The book takes you in simple steps through the sort of problems that you will encounter as a physical pen-tester: from getting in through the front door, to defeating door locks and other security systems, to bypassing security systems such as CCTV.
I am also heartened to see that the book does not simply concentrate on the "oh wow, gosh how cool is this" aspects of no-tech hacking, but also covers the ethical, moral and legal aspects of such operations; albeit from an US perspective - which to be fair to the author is his target audience. Those security experts working the UK might be better to look to Wil Allsopp's book "Unauthorised Access: Physical Penetration Testing for IT Security Teams".

I would advise any reader to take careful note of the author's musing on whether to disclose or not, when encountering security issues in the real world that are not part of your Rules of Engagement - they are very wise indeed.

The book is packed with little snippets and facts that will stop and make you pause for thought. For instance the section on how to defeat CCTV cameras really was an eye opener for me.
