I got the new version of Hacking Linux Exposed yesterday and read it straight through. I've been using the first edition since I bought it last year, but this one really blows the first one out of the water. It has a ton of new information - I particularly liked the stuff about wireless attacks and how to create a secure wireless network using VPNs so you don't need to rely on the wireless protocols that don't work correctly. Also the info about web hacks helped me find MANY bugs in our company's website that could have been used against us -- now we've got to see if we've been hacked before and start cleaning up.
