Five years ago, says top infosec expert Ed Skoudis, attacks on corporate computer systems were more likely to come from kids than hardened criminals. Now, though, “with organized crime and, yes, even terrorists mastering their computer attack skills, things have taken a turn for the dark and sinister.” When Skoudis sat down to rewrite his classic Counter Hack, he had his hands full. The result: a new book that’s every bit as useful to IT people as the original, and even more urgently important.
As in the first edition, Skoudis carefully describes the entire attack process: reconnaissance, scanning, and the methods used by attackers to gain, maintain, and hide their access. Skoudis addresses both UNIX/Linux and Windows environments and presents state-of-the-art countermeasures for the exploits he discusses. From wardriving to kernel-mode rootkits, this book tells you what you must know -- and what you must do. Bill Camarda, from the February 2006 Read Only
