Learn how to use good hacking to prevent your system from becoming the victim of attacks! "The Unofficial Guide to Ethical Hacking, Second Edition" defines the difference between hackers - those who crack a computer system for the sheer challenge of doing so - and crackers - an elusive class of computer criminals who break into systems, release viruses, and deface Web sites. Ethical hackers often help out system administrators by notifying them of loopholes in their systems before crackers can get to them and cause damage. More than just a guide to hacking, this book explores all aspects of computer security in a hands-on and easy-to-comprehend manner - a must-read for any computer user who wants to learn how a system is cracked and how you can better protect yourself. With helpful resources and clear, step-by-step instructions on various hacking techniques, this book features the most up-to-date and comprehensive information and methods, covering file encryption, firewalls, and viruses, as well as new topics such as instant messenger hacking, intellectual property thefts, identity attacks, and much more.

Ankit Fadia, as you have read earlier, was only 16 when he wrote this book. Thus, easy to understand for people around his age (Grammer-wise). The book is very easy to read and to understand. I am only on pag e 84 and the book already helped me with a IE Hijacker I had, which kept on reseting my home page to a IP address I can't remember. There are a few spelling mistakes but nothing serious. The book is written on the Win9x Platform, hence a little outdated for those who now use WinXP. It also covers a little of NT. It even covers the old MSDOS. This is a must-read for anyone interested in this topic.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Well, this book does give some good ideas and info on batch files and how viruses work, and a nice bit about programming! but the big flaw is that its outdated!amazing considering that it was just published isnt it? well the book is written for people with windows 98 mainly and isnt that helpful xp users...but if you are really familiar with windows xp registry and inner workings than you should be able to convert some of the info about '98 to xp...but it is sometimes annoying having to find the files that are in the book because the book is talking about '98....it makes me want to switch to linux!Was this review helpful?

It gives all the answers will need. it is a very complete guide. I was working with a Co-worker and he had a certain MS-DOS batch file question and I took the book off the shelf and it gave him a very detailed chapter on his topic. Great ReadWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

while this book does do a good job teaching hacking, it doesn't seem that ethical. It doesn't really teach you any effective means of stoping hackers either, just shows you a bunch of cheap script-kiddie tricks like how to make a webpage that freezes your computer. This book did have some good info. Like about the inner workings of windows, but that seemed about it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

this book is unbelievably large and even though it costed me $50 it was worth every penny. When i bought this book i had already read tons about hacking, cracking, and programming and this book can be for anyone into hacking, beginning or advanced . this book gives every single answer to every single question. I go to hacking forums all the time and basically every single question they ask that is on hacking, the answer is in this book. It also teaches you who real hackers are and why they are good for the communityWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
