This title is completely rewritten by a new, internationally renowned author team. Based on the new Linux 2.6 kernel, this edition is written from scratch by a global team of open source Linux security experts. "Hacking Exposed Linux, Third Edition" reveals brand-new Linux attacks, countermeasures, and case studies. The book is platform independent, so you will be able to learn how to secure any version of Linux that you are running.
About the Author
ISECOM (the Institute for Security and Open Methodologies), (Barcelona, Spain & New York, NY) is an open, collaborative, security research community established in January 2001. In order to fulfill its mission focus to apply critical thinking and scientific methodology to all facets of security, ISECOM is chartered as a commercial-free and non-partisan organization. The ISECOM Board of Directors reflects many countries representing thousands of members and volunteers from around the world. In a world of increasing commercial and industrial misrepresentation of security, ISECOM enables logical and rational decision-making in all aspects of security, integrity, privacy, and safety.

I would recommend the following book instead to anyone looking to learn how to hack a Linux system: Hacking Exposed Linux, 2nd Edition: Linux Security Secrets and Solutions (Hacking Exposed)
If you are a sys admin looking to secure a Linux system then this is certainly a book that deserves a slot on your bookshelf as it contains cutting edge information on how to keep a Linux system secure (as you would expect from ISECOM) and it will be extremely useful to you in this respect, but buy the earlier version if you are looking to learn how to hack Linux, as you will not learn any hacking methods from this book whatsoever. To be fair, the back cover does say you will learn about securing Linux and makes no mention of covering hacking topics.
My gripe is that it should not be sold under the Hacking Exposed brand name.

They are Great Books!! ---That is my opinion!
the first two editions have numerous examples of exploits followed by appropriate strategies for defending against them. the current edition is jargon and alphabet soup found within the field of security. about the only redeeming feature of the latest edition is a concise summary of security software for linux found in the appendix.
i teach linux security (usually in the spring) and i know how difficult it is keep current with examples of exploits. what i demonstrate one year is unavailable the next! however, the red books really attempted to demonstrate the various vulnerabilities the blue book is generality and vocabulary.
