The Barnes & Noble Review
Through Windows XP Service Pack 2 and beyond, Microsoft has invested hundreds of millions of dollars in improving Windows security. Now there’s a single source for the information you need to fully leverage that investment. Ed Bott and Carl Siechert cover everything from viruses to VPNs, firewalls to file encryption, Internet Explorer to instant messaging.

The authors review today’s most pervasive threats, offering checklists for responding to them and high-level processes for improving overall network and PC security. There’s detailed coverage of managing users, passwords, logons, and authentication; defending against attacks on wired and wireless networks; managing updates and hotfixes; protecting against registry cracks; and much more. While this book’s primary targets are Windows XP users, there’s plenty of information for Win2K users, too. Use the techniques outlined here, and you'll sleep better at night. Bill Camarda, from the November 2005 Read Only
