5.0 out of 5 stars A Fine Antidote for All of the Java Fanfare, 27 Jan 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: Java Security: Hostile Applets, Holes and Antidotes - What Every Netscape and Internet Explorer Needs to Know (Paperback)
Heave an egg out of an open window almost anywhere in the
world today, and the odds of striking a Netscape user are
in your favor. The odds are even better that this person
either knows nothing of Java or believes that it is safe.
Pick up almost any book on Java programming, and you will
see the same superficial and misleading treatment of
security issues. This important book is the first one to
address the myriad problems raised by Java. It clearly and
concisely explains past problems, current issues, and future
risks. McGraw and Felten grab the high and mighty Java
industry by the ear, and they offer sane and sensible advice
to every level of Java programmer and user. One can only
wish that this book had appeared a year earlier and had been
widely read by Java's cheerleaders and hucksters. Perhaps
then more of the problems would have been solved by now,
and fewer risks would remain.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent read for anyone interested in Java security, 28 Aug 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: Java Security: Hostile Applets, Holes and Antidotes - What Every Netscape and Internet Explorer Needs to Know (Paperback)
This book is wonderfully written and full of good
information. It would be useful for anyone from novice users to managers to Java Programmers who are concerned about security. In fact, I
strongly recommend them buying a copy to read as this is one of the best technical books I've read in a long time. The only audience I wouldn't
recommend it for are the people who are doing very advanced Java Security work such as writing their own Security Manager, but they may
even learn something from it.
