Product description

Review

"Stealing the Network: How to Own the Box is a unique book in the fiction department. It combines stories that are false, with technology that is real. While none of the stories have happened, there is no reason why they could not. You could argue it provides a road map for criminal hackers, but I say it does something else; it provides a glimpse into the creative minds of some of today's best hackers, and even the best hackers will tell you that the game is a mental one." - from the foreword by Jeff Moss, President & CEO, BlackHat, Inc.

"...the reader will find this an informative, instructive and even entertaining book." - Managing Risk magazine

Format: Paperback
This is NOT a book to pick up if you're administering just the smallest of networks connected to the internet. I've gotten massive paranoia from reading it - but wouldn't have missed it for the world. But I also have a feeling that I've managed to tighten things down a bit at my end of the line, so it's also highly inspirational.. And being the nerdy g33k I am, in my world this book now reigns higher than The Dark Tower series.. EXCELLENT reading.. (Where's the 6 stars option ?)

this is a really great read...it may as well be about the stories you hear about on the news they are so similar...can be a bit techie sometimes but if you want to know what really goes on behind the headlines, this is the book for you.

Oh man. This book. Where do I start. When I was a kid I wanted to be a badass hacker. A real actual hacker that owns boxes and takes down networks. I had long hair, black clothes, black glasses to look and feel like a true hacker. Movies like Matrix, Hackers, Take Down, and this book shaped my mind.

When I first saw this title I was captured. I knew I had to read this book. I wanted to own boxes. When I got it, it took me just a few hours to read through it page after page. Syngress became my hero publishing company.

This book is the first in series of several Stealing the Network books. It's a cyber fiction book about hackers. The stories in this book are fake but there's no reason why they couldn't be real. Every story explains how the hacks are performed, which tools and techniques are used. If you can think then you'll quickly be able to apply these ideas for your own profit, whether it's securing your own networks or breaking into someone else's networks. Absolute must read for anyone.

There are more books in Stealing the Network series by Syngress:

* Stealing the Network: How to Own a Continent
* Stealing the Network: How to Own an Identity
* Stealing the Network: How to Own a Shadow
* Stealing the Network: The Complete Series Collector's Edition

Don't read these books if you're a system administrator and want to sleep at night. You won't be sleeping because I'm coming after your network! Bwahaha!

I've placed this book #29 in my Top 100 Mathematics, Computer Security and Science books list. Google for >>catonmat top 100 math security science books<< to find my list.
