I will probably take a lot of heat for this, so let me start by putting on my asbestos suit.To quote the beginning of this book, page About the authors:This book was written by multiple authors, reviewers, and editors - too many to all be listed here - who collaborated to create the best Linux hacking book they could.The best Linux hacking book! Wow I will probably like this book, having already read and used the OSSTMM from ISECOM before.Then I got very excited reading the praise of the book from Jake Kouns on the front cover, reading praise by Clement Dupuis on the back cover book and browsing the Table of Contents. This book is going to be so much fun reviewing and will probably have me recommending it for future training and courses about Unix/Linux security.The reason I start saying Unix/Linux, and will soon only say Unix - is that this book tries to cover more than just Linux. Examples include appendices with information about BSD security, listing FreeBSD, NetBSD and OpenBSD information, and also including references to other Unix systems in the book.I will also use the term Unix, because lets face it there is a lot in common between Unix systems, from Linux to Mac OS X - as anyone will know from reading a real Unix Security book like Practical Unix and Internet Security from O'Reilly - THE BOOK about Unix security.I was very disappointed, and I have to be true to the wording - the best Linux hacking book. This book is not about hacking Linux, it is more about hacking WITH Linux. Will all respect for the authors I will try to explain why this review is not outright positive.Let me start by get some problems sorted out immediately.
