Malicious hackers are everywhere these days, so how do you keep them out of your networks? This unique volume challenges your forensics and incident response skills with 20 real-world hacks presented by upper-echelon security experts. Important topics are covered, including Denial of Service, wireless technologies, Web attacks, and malicious code. Each challenge includes a detailed explanation of the incident--how the break-in was detected, evidence and possible clues, technical background such as log files and network maps, and a series of questions for you to solve. Then, in Part II, you get a detailed analysis of how the experts solved each incident.
