5.0 out of 5 stars A great book to get you started
This is a fantastic book for someone who wishes to understand computer security and its breaching. It explains many key methods of attack, including syn/ack flooding, ping floods, security scanning, war dialing and ip spoofing. The best thing about the book is it's cheap. If you buy a 40 quid computer book, you'll find most of it contains lists of info which you could get...

2.0 out of 5 stars Out of date.
This book is very dated now and much of what it contains has long since passed in to the realms of computer history.

OK as a period piece but not much use other than that.

This review is from: A Complete Hacker's Handbook: Everything You Need to Know About Hacking in the Age of the Web (Paperback)
This is a fantastic book for someone who wishes to understand computer security and its breaching. It explains many key methods of attack, including syn/ack flooding, ping floods, security scanning, war dialing and ip spoofing. The best thing about the book is it's cheap. If you buy a 40 quid computer book, you'll find most of it contains lists of info which you could get for free from the internet. "A Complete Hacker's Handbook" is clear, concise and easy to understand.
Also covers Hacker culture, virii, warez and securing your own computer system.

4.0 out of 5 stars HACKERS HANDBOOK....GOOD READ, 12 Mar. 2004
This review is from: A Complete Hacker's Handbook: Everything You Need to Know About Hacking in the Age of the Web (Paperback)
New to the IT world, as I am, then you will find this an interesting read. Don't expect it to teach you how to hack, after all its illegal! but it provides you with an insight into the world of hacking, for the good and bad. The author, a reformed hacker, has produced a truly inspiring book illustrating the threats present in today’s tech savvy society. BUY IT.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good but doesn't tell you a lot, 14 Jun. 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: A Complete Hacker's Handbook: Everything You Need to Know About Hacking in the Age of the Web (Paperback)
When I got this book I was looking to start hacking. This is a good start...aslong as you don't want to learn anything. It's interesting but skips everything to tell you how to do things. If you want to know how hackers do things then this is a good book. But if you want to learn to hack, it doesn't go into any detail. It tells you what hackers do withought telling you how to do it.
