Customer Review

5.0 out of 5 stars It was expensive in KL, and took me much time to read. But I loved it., 8 July 2012
This review is from: Hacking Exposed Wireless, Second Edition: Wireless Security Secrets and Solutions (Paperback)
Since I have wireless networks to protect, I thought it best to see what knowledge was actually out there.

I took a month break from my CCIE R&S study to follow this through.

I read it cover to cover, and practiced many of the examples (if not all of them).

What I liked was that if you read between the lines of what they are saying, you can understand the other nefarious uses of these skills, and thus best how to combat the 'attack'.

Really I just logged in here to see if there was an updated version to buy.

If you have no skills, or no desire to learn some *nix (Unix, Linux, Mac) you might struggle to follow some of the examples, as that is the hackers platform of choice, and thus features throughout the books' worked examples.

I was stopped in San Jose airport by airport security carrying this book, and all they wanted to say was 'good reading - enjoy it!'. It seems they had some of these skills already...
