Security expert Chirillo takes you through the security holes in UNIX, Linux and Windows. Here’s a book for the Network Administrators, Network Engineers, Security Consultants, Managers and even SOHO users. If you are an enthusiast wanting to explore the world of ‘hacking’, it will certainly enlighten you about lots of ‘how it is done’, but be aware that it assumes too much technical background. It begins with a basic history and understanding of computer and networking technology. Besides covering the protocols used and the purpose of the various ports used, it also provides information on the scanning and network-discovery tools used by hackers. What sets this book apart from books of the same league is a crash course in C for compiling these tools; the basic approach is how to hack to know how to secure.
