What is the true spirit of hacking? It’s exploration. Discovery. Invention. If you want to be a pioneer, not just a “script kiddie,” read Hacking: The Art of Exploitation.
This book is about awakening and feeding your passionate curiosity about how software and networks work. What do overflows look like, and how do they make systems vulnerable? What can be done with shellcode? How do Denial of Service and TCP/IP Hijack attacks work? How does a man-in-the-middle attack circumvent encryption?
Whether you’re exploiting systems, protecting them, or just plain fascinated by them, this is the technical foundation you need to start hacking -- for real. Bill Camarda
