Even if you're not interested in becoming a hacker (or penetration tester) it's a worthwhile read if you want to understand the problem..."--Network Security,August 1 2013

Good Introduction Book to the topic 1 Sept. 2013
By Matt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you are looking for a quick introduction to the topic, this might be worthwhile. If you are looking for more intermediate or advanced discussions this might not be the book for you. Overall well written and easy to follow. A few of the commands are off, and so you have to work at them to get things working.

Are you concerned? Maybe you should be? 30 Sept. 2013
By NSlone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Let's say, just for the sake of this article, that you're a developer and that you work for a Fortune 500 corporation. Let's also say that you take jobs on the side for small companies. You guarantee the security of your apps when used on the web. They are supposed to be secure, and they are only used on the web. So what's to worry about? Your reputation if you find out that your apps are not secure and you do nothing about it.
This book will help you determine if your apps are as secure as you think, and if they're not, it will help you find and use the tools to test them. If they need more security, you can then beef up your security, both on your current apps and any future apps. Now your reputation is secured as well.
What if I'm not a developer? What if I'm just a regular Jane or Joe just doing my job? What if I'm just Suzy Homemaker and I'm just checking my email, or I'm selling items on a little website I own? This book is also for you. With the tools and information in this book you can definitely make your website more secure. You can plug the holes and remove as much vulnerability as is possible. This book is chock full of ideas to help you maintain a secure website, and apps whether you're a developer or not. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone concerned about securing their website and/or apps. If you're not concerned,, maybe you should be?
