5.0 out of 5 stars Superb book - worth the weight in Gold, 14 Mar 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hacking Exposed: Network Security Secrets and Solutions, 4th edition (Paperback)
Having read this book it made me realise how easy it can be to leave holes behind. If you are thinking of becoming a network security administrator or a security consultant this book will definitely enhance your knowledge.
The good thing about this book is that not only does it tell you how to exploit a security hole but also how to close it to avoid the intrusion in the first place. Get this book, it is well worth it

5.0 out of 5 stars A worthy desk reference, 11 Sep 2009
This review is from: Hacking Exposed: Network Security Secrets and Solutions, 4th edition (Paperback)
Despite this edition being fairly old now, I still refer to it quite frequently. If you're already working in a security related field, you will most likely be aware of the majority of the tools the author discusses, but the organized approach to the chapters makes it worthwhile reading when you're doing a security audit anyway - to make sure you don't miss anything. Also, you may still pick up a trick or two.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST for ANY security enthusiast!, 11 Feb 2005

This review is from: Hacking Exposed: Network Security Secrets and Solutions, 4th edition (Paperback)
This book is THE BIBLE to the practical approach to IT security.
The book goes through real life examples taking you through the steps from picking up hack signatures to reporting the faults and fixes to the hack.
It will take you through cleint and server security flaws, from SQL database, web servers and beyond.
The book puts you in the shoes of a hacker and as we all know...to beat a hacker you have to think like a hacker.
A must buy, simple as that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Information Gold a Understatement, 26 Jun 2002
By A Customer
There is one , Hacking Exposed already the third version is in print and it is safe to say it is as close to a security bestseller that there is. This book walks you through everything you need to know about how hackers do their work and the best part the the good guys (Security Professional) it also tells you how to implement counter measures or what risks are associated.
Sure you might spend days looking for all the information and sure you will find it but this book is what real life is all about and will save your bacon before attackers cook it.
The best part is the Hacking Linux Expose book, it shut a few Linux eyes only people up for once and Linux users also have thier own security problems to solve.
McGraw hill has taken the risk along time ago and it has paid off big for them. Thanks for publishing this book.
When is the Hacking OSX Book comming??

5.0 out of 5 stars Great !!, 14 Dec 2001
By A Customer
Simply one great book. I was really interested in "security" stuff, but not experienced at all. This book, besides an intriguing look, provides a simple, detailed approach to hacking. Buy it, if you need something on hacking.
