The first version of Hacking Exposed came out in 1999. The book was a game changer that made penetration and vulnerability testing available to the masses. Needless to say that in the ensuing 13 years, there has been a huge amount of change in the world of information security.With the release of Hacking Exposed 7: Network Security Secrets & Solutions, authors Stuart McClure, Joel Scambray and George Kurtz (along with over 10 contributing authors) provide an up to date version to the original classic.The book builds on the fundamentals of the first edition, and does include essentials of hacking on topics such as enumeration, foot printing, scanning, operating system detection and a lot more.The latest edition gets into current threats and details the new menace of APT (advanced persistent threats), embedded hacking, database hacking, and significant coverage of mobile devices.The book also spends more time on dealing with countermeasures to the various threats and vulnerabilities detailed.At over 700 pages, Hacking Exposed 7: Network Security Secrets & Solutions, the book covers every core area of interest to penetration testers.Written in a lucid and easy to read style, the updated version remains the best book on the topic.
Overall an excellent book and easy to understand. I have always loved the Hacking Exposed books. The books are designed to be an organized, easy reference for anyone. The books provide detailed explanation of different types of attacks and then go on to explain the countermeasures for each. It makes a great resource for my CEH preperation.
I'm in vulnerability assessment and pen testing field started last year. I seldom buy computer books these day but this is one of the exceptions.Company paid $5000 for my SANS 560 course but not willing to spend the money to buy this book so I got it for myself.I'm still reading it and all I can said is, go get yours.
This is a great reference tool. Easy to follow along and understand, even for a network security novice like me.
Man! This book Is actually a college course on the ins and out of Hack A Mania and how to resolve the virus Rootkit dilemma. This book shows you the what when and why a virus or rootkit are on the attack, and the steps to take. It Has Wireless Routing Solutions if you have a router that mysteriously locks up or crashes into oblivion! The book shows you how routers are infected, what hackers use, and the remedy! Hacking Exposed 7 Network Security Secrets and Solutions is a must have if your looking for "A Total Solution Resource Book" This Is It!
Read it carefully, do not miss a step. This title presents clearly what hackers do and vulnerabilities of your own system. Great examples of tools used by hackers. After reading the book I got armed with tons of information against hacking. Vigilance is not a option. Strongly recommended....
This book is a very comprehensive book and goes into good detail about computers, networks and operating systems. It tells why things are done the way they are and what not to do with regards to computer networks. I highly reccomend this book.
