Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Most recognize Thor as the Norse god of thunder with massive powers of destruction. Few realize that he was also the god of restoration. Likewise, his namesake, Timothy "Thor" Mullen, has spent his entire adult life both destroying and restoring Microsoft-based security systems.Thor'sMicrosoft Security Bible conveys the wisdom and expertise of the industry legend that has defined the bleeding edge of Microsoft security for over twenty years. I highly recommend this book."
