Learn how to use good hacking to prevent your system from becoming the victim of attacks!

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.
