This review is from: Hacker's Challenge 2: Test Your Network Security & Forensic Skills: Test Your Network Security and Forensic Skills: v. 2 (Hacking Exposed) (Paperback)
I bought this book in excitement from that the first book brought me. After reading the first two chapters, I was already thoroughly disappointed. The rest of the book didn't improve much as I went on. Pages after pages of repetitive logs, which only illustrate some elementary facts that the server received a 'buffer overflow attack', or 'oh no! someone logged in at 3am!' (that's it!). No more details given. For anyone ever read anything about computer security, most 'challenges' posed in this book you can simply glance up the 5-pages long logs for a second and you'd be able to figure out what's going on.
And that's this book, which only tells you what happened, but not how (well, mostly easily obtainable popular script-kiddie tools) and why, leaving you high and dry. You'd bemuch better get the 'Stealing the Network' serie.
