From Barnes & NobleThe Barnes & Noble Review
To protect your software, first understand why it’s vulnerable. Greg Hoglund and Gary McGraw have toured all of your software’s potential weaknesses -- and they’re worse than you think.
The authors systematically introduce “attack patterns”: today’s most common blueprints for exploiting vulnerabilities. You’ll take a detailed look at reverse engineering: what crackers are looking for, and how automation makes them even more dangerous.
Buffer overflows have rarely been considered in this depth before. You’ll also find excellent coverage of rootkits, malicious input, and attacks targeted specifically at clients or servers.
If you’re buying this book, you should know about McGraw’s Building Secure Software, a companion title focused solely on solutions. Whether you’re a developer, security pro, or ethical hacker, you need them both. Bill Camarda
