    Firewalls Don't Stop Dragons: A Step-By-Step Guide to Computer Security for Non-Techies []  2020-2-1 11:52

    An perfect book for the not too sophisticated. We should all be more conscious of security and privacy, but how do we take actions to protect ourselves? This book explains the concepts and then gives lots of Hints on what we can do, e.g. how to secure your home router connecting you to the internet, how to avoid doing everything in an admin acc and risk letting poor guys obtain the same privileges if they cheat in to your computer. This is a quick moving field, and the author provides updated info on his e book covers the main versions of Apple-IOS and Microsoft-Windows operating systems, and has a chapter on smartphones. It is excellent for someone who wants to improve their info security. As the author explains, we trade off convenience and security/privacy, and the book allows us to create decisions on which of the Hints we will implement. The author strongly recommends use of a password manager and identifies a few suitable ones. This book is simple to read, and allows the reader to select the level of security they are interested in and to implement that using the Hints provided.I expect to be picking up this book a lot of times over the coming months as I continually increase my info security and privacy to my level of comfort and convenience.

    Firewalls Don't Stop Dragons: A Step-By-Step Guide to Computer Security for Non-Techies []  2020-2-1 11:52

    Perfect discussions on protecting your on-line privacy versus malware and intrusions for both PCs and Macs. It's goals are practical. Issues are described and specific software solutions (often free and well-considered in security reviews) are provided. The reading is easy, and the description of the basics of computer and internet protocols that effect in vulnerabilities is literate and accessible to both novices and users familiar with password wallets, cookie and ad blockers, anti-virus software and VPNs. The security recommendations are summed up in a Hint list that makes it more difficult to ignore what you should do to protect yourself on-line.Even it you've assembled an ad hoc collection of security software ad, this book explains why they're important and how to best protect yourself in the on-line globe that is increasingly insecure.

    Firewalls Don't Stop Dragons: A Step-By-Step Guide to Computer Security for Non-Techies []  2020-2-1 11:52

    Now that my wife and I are both retired, I am beautiful much responsible for Internet security and privacy for our computers (we have 3 PC's and 3 Apple devices). This book is, to me, clearly the best resource I have found to protect the security and privacy of our machines. I have implemented a lot of (most) of the recommendations that author Parker makes in the book and am much more confident and relaxed about working/browsing/ping on the Internet regardless of being at home or using a public WiFi. The book is fun to read, but on a more serious level, the screen shots that present how to implement the book's suggestions for most latest operating systems makes the task at hand certainly less difficult. I am neither a novice nor an expert with computers, mired somewhere in between, but I had no problem following the recommendations, understanding their rationales, and implementing them. This book was one of the best $20 that I have ever spent.

    Private computer security is receiving increasing attention in the press, and rightly so. This book is an perfect "how to" manual geared toward those of us who are computer literate, but not necessarily "expert". Each section provides both background and a checklist for implementing security measures on Mac, PC, Android device and IOS systems, both dedicated and portable to provide protection for all of your computing devices. "Safe practices" for storing info on cloud computing platforms are also discussed. I highly recommend this book to anyone, especially to those of us who have who no longer have access to employer enterprise systems and so have had the "luxury" of having others maintain secure practices for us.

    This book is such an simple read with so much information. Such clear instructions with examples. I usually stick to fiction, so I was not too excited to pick up what I thought would be a dry technical text book. But it moves fast, you learn a lot. It is well organized and you definitely can ramp up your security and privacy practices, even if you are already in-the-know. Allow me add - - his is going to be my security bible - It is such a resource. I am sure I will pick up on something fresh every time I pick it up.

    I'm an I.T. professional, and also the family techie whom Parker refers to as trying to support everyone out. I am going to recommend this book to all of my mates and family and everyone I've ever helped with computer issues who has said to me 'but I'm not a computer person'. With this book, you don't have to be. The chapter on Social Media alone is worth the price of the book. The writing style, and the format of the book create it something my mom could easily follow and hold with her for those times when she gets worried about an problem and can't reach me. Part of me wants to buy a large stack of this book and hand it out to all the hundreds of people I know who need it.

    Unbelievable Book! I really enjoyed the topic matter, which always helps, but Carey Parker is able to give enough background, and point people at a lot of of the tools used by security researchers to protect their privacy online. Is it a do this 1 thing and your safe? Read the book and Search out. A fast read, well organized, and if you have family members like I do ( who do not speak TechJargon for a living)it is written in an simple to read style. Thoroughly enjoyed the book.

    OK, I went to this FREE class but I had to buy this book. I was kind of irritated at having to buy a book for a FREE class. This was one of the greatest books for a class I've ever read! It was designed in such a method that even a computer dummy like me could understand. And Carey Parker has a amazing sense of humor! Created the book method more enjoyable than I thought was possible given all the "computer security" language. I highly, highly recommend it!

    Perfect book on primary internet security. Written for people who are not engineers. Explains the workings of the internet, and the pitfalls someone can unknowingly stumble into. Describes common issues and how to prevent them. I used this book to entirely revamp my home network. I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to improve their home network.

    Nmap Network Scanning: The Official Nmap Project Guide to Network Discovery and Security Scanning []  2020-8-2 19:21

    Every Security God needs a Bible, and Fyodor's absolute, incrediblydefinitive tutorial on Nmap will imbue you with rock-solid scanningstratagems without having to sacrifice the network to lesser tools andtomes.An earlier review mentioned this book, "Is not for the casual nmapuser..." Indeed, Nmap is not a casual tool. No other open-sourcesecurity tool in latest memory (10yrs) matches the potentially bad....andostensibly amazing happenings someone could discern from a network.What makes the book special in its approach is that it was written by thecreator of the tool. Fyodor is a rare combination of first-rateprogrammer and elucidating author, which some might relate to -- how manyof us have used an perfect tool, only to be underwhelmed by the dearthof doentation?This is especially necessary from a technique/holistic view, meaning thatthe more intricate the security tool, the more potential mayhem one cancreate. It's the difference between knowing your vulnerabilities orfinding out how personally vulnerable you are to pointed questions byangry admins after you brought down the network...or worse.Over half the book goes over features and options I haven't seen onlineanywhere else -- that alone makes the book a worthwhile purchase. Buyingthe book reaffirms the concept that intelligent, well-designed opensource software can be exponentially better than software costingthousands...and you can take that to your Knowledge Bank.-joe

    Nmap Network Scanning: The Official Nmap Project Guide to Network Discovery and Security Scanning []  2020-8-2 19:21

    The book is slightly dated, but still very informative. I would not hesitate to suggest this book to somebody wanting to learn Nmap. Not only is it a amazing reference for Nmap options and tunings, it also displays the info in an engaging and informative method from the perspective of a pen tester. I read it like a novel and gained a lot of knowledge about Nmap and network mapping in e largest outdated info are that -sP is now -sn, and that IPv6 is now supported more for Nmap. Beyond that, the functionality is mostly just extended to contain fresh features.

    As others have said much better than I can, this is an awesome covers beautiful much everything about nmap and gives perfect descriptions of the a lot of scans you can perform. The best part is that it is not rehashed man page information, but he explains what is going on under the hood. This makes the book invaluable as a ere are several amusing stories about nmap usage, the story is priceless and absolutely stunning! The only confusing part is the warnings about scanning without permission, yet seems to do it throughout the book. The Playboy*** scan story was a hoot but I doubt he had permission to do is book is a must for all network and security students and professionals.***Hopefully this word won't obtain censored yet again by the hypocritical Amazon morals police.

    Nmap Network Scanning: The Official Nmap Project Guide to Network Discovery and Security Scanning []  2020-8-2 19:21

    Ordered this to really understand all the bells and whistles of Nmap before taking my PWK (OSCP) course. Regarding the criticism for Fyodor for repeating himself, there is a lot of repetition in the book. However, this actually adds value to book as reference material. Unlike other books, while reading on any subject you do not have to jump around in the book as everything you need is right there in each chapter. Most of the chapters are very simple reading while some obtain very technical. Not only does the author explain how to use the tool, he explains exactly what Nmap is doing with each command from a technical standpoint. If you plan to create your own network scanning tool, this is the book for you! The book is a bit dated BUT all the updated material is available online for FREE as well as the Nmap change only criticism lies in the quality of the material not the content (5 star content). The printing is blurred on multiple pages and cover is awkward (after opening once the cover will forever curl out). This is book I would like to hold forever, it would have been nice if it came in hard cover.

    For me this was a really amazing book. I am by no means a security expert; I'm a student. But this book really showed me the ins and outs of nmap but also it gave me amazing starting locations about attack vectors that I had never considered before. Also it gave me a amazing view of possible ways recon can be performed versus a network and some of the things to look for as well as some of the tracks of thought you should take when auditing your logs and / or pentesting your own network. It taught me how to fish.

    NMAP is a strong tool even in its most primary usage. I knew it was capable of a lot more than the preconfigured scans Zenmap GUI provides, but I had no idea the depth of the product. While "Fyodor" provides a lot of doentation online at the NMAP web site, the book definitely goes above and beyond.If you're looking at doing network ysis, this book is a must-read and inexpensive compared to most IT-field references.

    CompTIA Security+ Guide to Network Security Fundamentals - Standalone Book []  2020-1-31 3:5

    It's a CompTIA textbook and it reads like a textbook. There seems to be plenty of information. More than enough for the Security+ cert, I'd imagine. If only my instructor that had us purchase this for a college class actually used it as material or even a guide. Really, I just don't know what college is for anymore when everything is such a high percentage DIY endeavor tip: skip taking any cert classes unless you're getting a true degree (A.S, B.S., etc). "Obtain the materials", read them, maybe take some practice quizes online, and then just take the proctored exams.

    Introduction to Network Security: Theory and Practice []  2020-1-31 3:38

    Save time and money. Do not buy, rent or read it even if it is available for free. There are much better books that provide primary introduction to security (first half of the book) and Network Security (second half of the book). Understanding Cryptography (Paar, Pelzl), Cryptography and Network Security (Stallings) and Applied Cryptography (Schneier) are amazing alternatives covering same/similar e cryptography part of the book is incomprehensible (when compared to the other better books listed above). The Network Security part of the book is very scant with actual info of how protocols provide security. The chapter on cloud security is incoherent with small content dealing on actual cloud security and more on primary cloud terminology/definitions. Most subjects are two or three sentences in length. Wikipedia would probably provide more useful information.

    Introduction to Network Security: Theory and Practice []  2020-1-31 3:38

    Much of the material, especially from the offensive security perspective, is naive at best. Especially lacking are the chapters in the back half, including Cloud Security and Malware/Worms. The description of software exploitation in the first chapter is downright incorrect, defying primary operating systems knowledge (no, local variables are not allocated on the heap). For students exploring security for the first time, please dig deeper than this.

    CompTIA Security+ Guide to Network Security Fundamentals - Standalone Book []  2020-1-31 3:5

    I have passed my Security+ in December and i have found that this book goes method more in-depth on the subjects than the exam itself, which is amazing. It is better you overprepare rather than underprepare. If you have the additional cash to spare for this book, by all means, go to the poor part, the price of it. The book has amazing formatting and it the info in it is described in terms easy enough for a very beginner to understand, however this book is absolutely littered with typos and clerical mistakes. It is completely fine to have those in a book, but not in almost every single paragraph. From what i see, it gets worse as the chapters go. It is unacceptable for this kind of price to have so a lot of trivial mistakes of that kind. The book has to be proofread and reprinted for ere are books out there that give you 1 for 1 info and are a third or less price. They also don't have as a lot of clerical errors in them. If this book was simply less than $100 and was reprinted to correct the mistakes, it would simply be the best value for your cash on the market, but it is not, as it stand right now.

    This book does have a lot of errors. But it's so well written, and is so simple to read! Mr. Fouruzan presents material in such a clear logical way, illustrates it so nicely - that I rate this book higher than a lot of others on the same subject. It covers quite a lot. In some cases I want the author'd go deeper, in some cases I want the editor/author did a better check - but overall the support I obtain from this book and the ease of using it outweigh any weakness it may have.I recommend it to those who start to study modern cryptography, and as a supplement to those experienced in the field but wishing to refresh mathematical foundations of crypto.

    Cryptography and Network Security []  2020-10-19 19:25

    I bought this book after wanting to do an implementation of AES. I still haven't finished it, since I decided to do an implementation of DES at chapter 6. One of the reasons I'm writing this is in chapter 6 there is some errata in the text concerning the DES expansion table, and I'm beautiful sure the trace data for table 6.15 is incorrect. I would definitely obtain the table data from the specification for those needing to implement is is a real textbook and you probably won't need much more of a reference for the subject. It does show the math in a beautiful amazing method as to leaving most questions answered. It does support to have done some bitwise math and of course algebra beforehand of course. I think the diagrams for the encryption algorithms are very helpful. I'm actually excited about learning the rest of the material which does seem to cover most network security methods with a consistent quality. Hope this helps, I will modernize this review later if necessary.

It was an simple decision for me to purchase the book after reading few page preview. There were several must know a.k.a. foot stomper in just few page review. I read 2 chapters: Encryption and Taking the exams as refresher before taking CCSP. The book was written appropriately to prepare reader to sit for managerial exam. It was simple to read and concise to support reader understand the concept. I did not feel that I obtain drawn out by the materials like other 1000 or 600 page books. In my opinion, the ebook is a amazing refresher and a amazing exam cram or the 11th hour book. It is not a replacement of AIO, or official study guide.

    I teach an introductory cryptography class at the University of Denver. I have been seeking a amazing text for six years, but I have been disappointed with all that I have tried. Forouzan's book is the respond to my is neither over-simplified nor overly rigorous. Theorem proofs are saved for an appendix, so students don't obtain bogged down in the math before they have had a possibility to assimilate the cryptographic concepts. Copious illustrations support with the most complex topics. Practice issues provide an opportunity for students to try their mastery and for the instructor to measure their e basic focus of the text is network security - specifically, e-mail, SSL and IPsec. (Esoteric protocols such as secure elections and digital money are not discussed at all.) This text, in essence, is an elaboration of the final part of Forouzan's TCP/IP text. As such, it is extremely useful to those who are looking for skills that are immediately applicable to the work environment.

    NOTE: This book more or less assumes that you are either:A Computer Science Graduate with a MAJOR interest in encoding and encryption.A math major who would rather discuss the virtues of MOD % in C# or C++ as a past my opinion, you might want to be BOTH the above if you intend to create true use of the material. A solid foundation in encoding and encryption at the encoding level (as it assumes you know DISCRETE MATH, and created it through Differenctial Calculus and know a significant amount about a dozens of programming languages)It's loaded with errors and errata and lacks any consise+clear examples; Im not speaking of slight errors either, these are formula errors which can throw a 100 step issue right into the circular file in due time. The issue is, you dont search out until hours later that there WAS an issue. I worked on a DES issue for several hours by hand as needed before I found the mistake within the 'example' in the book only to search out I ran out of time and STILL had to the issue for my s a link to the publisher's website for the errata if you'd like to see for yourself... [...]The examples in the book are at best piecemeal in design with very few (if any) clear step by step instructions but instead refers to elements from other piecemeal examples previously presented and you end up chasing your tail and wasting your valuable ain - IF you are a MATH MAJOR and a PROGRAMMING whiz AND College level AND while Im at it... possess an IQ above 140 this is an amazing book full of brevity and pseudo shortcuts to 100 step Department of Defense level encryption issues like Triple DES and AES ( assuming you knew them in the first place) this book is for you.IF you are a student trying to obtain thru a class or would like to know more about how encryption works... consider an alternative manual/ - One more thing; the chapter review questions in the manual do not have an respond key in the back of the book so you are on your own in that respect.

    Cryptography and Network Security []  2020-10-19 19:25

    This book is riddled with math errors, and just plain incorrect statements being created about different aspects. I am currently taking an introduction to cryptography course through my university and it has become apparent that my professor only needed this book because it comes with free lecture slides, and even those are poor and apparent that it is not a well reviewed book. If you are an enthusiast, skip this book and look for Cryptography and Network Security: Principles and Practice from William Stallings, I would recommend that one a million times over. If you are a student and your professor is using this book, avoid his class he/she either is uninspired to pick a decent book for your learning, or has no idea what he/she is doing. If you are needed to take that course I would again recommend the book posted above, as it takes on info in about the same order as this book.

    This book has a lot of errors, as you read though it. This can mix you up when you need to see corrected samples to search out what the book is telling you. there is a correction PDF file at the web link that is provided but then it's to much going back and this book you need alot of time to read it carfully. If you don't have to buy this book, then don't.

    The books walks through the infosec zone from a very high altitude, with amazing pointers of a lot of locations of interest. The tone tends to lean towards the cissp mainly but I believe it should tutorial other try takers too. At least there's a disclaimer from the onset: you still need to read specific and authoritative texts for your specific exam. All in all a work well place together.

I had high expectations from this book but unfortunately, I did not search it worthwhile. As most of the other reviewers have said, the info is nothing new, you can search the same info in Google find and YouTube videos.

    It is instructive. I do not know much on the topic and I am not interested in attempting hacking but it may be useful to the general public. The detailed programming explanation in the latest part of the book seems somewhat out of tone with the very general considerations in the first part. I would like to see that programing part extended to some other language like Java or Python. In some way, the book although amazing seems to me somewhat unbalanced.

    Computer Hacking Beginners Guide: How to Hack Wireless Network, Basic Security and Testing, Kali Linux, Your First Hack []  2020-9-10 18:1

    The premise of Hacking: Computer Hacking for Beginners Tutorial by Alan T. Norman is to teach you about terms and language surrounding “hacking” in general. In specific Alan takes on the daunting task of trying to espouse ethics and morals surrounding hacking, including Black Hat, Grey Hat and White Hat hacking and what the differences are. He also takes on the task of teaching you C++ at a very introductory but functional level so that you actually learn how to program and debug your own r a little book with lofty goals, he accomplishes these tasks surprisingly well. It is clear through reading the book that Alan is a teacher, and he does a amazing job at training you about your topic and then accomplishing your task. I was actually surprised by how much I learned. The context of this statement is that I am a cyber-security professional and a training professional as is is a really perfect book. I was surprised at how clearly Alan elucidates what hacker really means, and goes to amazing pains to explain Black Hats, Grey Hats, and White Hats. Alan tells you in words and figures that there are no short cuts; it is all about learning and experience. He takes a far more ethical bent than I would have expected. This is a amazing beginner book for anyone who is curious, wants to know more, and wants to defend themselves. This is even a amazing book if you have less than ethical motives, and just need to know what words mean and how to obtain started in hacking.While it is clear to me that Alan is not a native US English speaker from some of the expressions and mannerisms in his language, he is still quite clear in expressing himself, and other than a few linguistic idioms there is no confusion as to what he is explaining to you, the reader, and what he wants you to do. Typographical and grammatical errors are few and far between, so it has been well , I read the book on a combination of Samsung S-7 intelligent phone, Amazon Kindle, and computer screen. What I can tell you for sure is that the diagrams in the book, the code examples, are going to be too little to see well on a little screen. You can magnify them quite a bit and they are viewable, but if you really wish to obtain everything you need out of this book, you should be on a full size screen – e.g. 11 inches or bigger. Since theoretically you should be doing everything on a computer anyway, not a tablet, that should not show a issue as you can simply read the book in a Kindle reading app; but it is a factor if you are a commuting reader or a work reader like I is book is like putting on a diving mask for the first time, and catching that exciting glimpse of a whole WORLD under the sea where before you just saw a mass of water. Hopefully the folks starting out and growing up will utilize this and other books to realize that there is a bigger globe out there, and that it is navigable, but like anything else what you obtain out of it depends on what you place into are not going to be able to pull off the next huge department shop cyber-crime after reading this book. But you are going to know a lot more about the exact tools and steps you will need for either ethical or non-ethical hacking. The book does not create a moral choice for you, that is of course up to you. But it does go a long and succinct method to begin you on a much longer journey. And if by possibility you happen to casually meander in to the dark underbelly of the digital universe, at least this book is a signpost to tutorial you.I applaud Alan for his work in getting you started on the street to discovering a bigger world.Highly recommended as an introductory book for hacking.

    I gave it an honest effort hoping to obtain a small something out of it, but the content is rudimentary at best. I guess it would be amazing for someone who's never worked in the IT industry to obtain a 10,000 foot flyby view of the basics of security. But honestly, if you have ever worked in any IT field with even a year of focus on primary security, you won't obtain much from this book. I would consider myself a beginner when it comes to "hacking", so between the title and the near 5 star rating, I was mislead.

    This book went into far too much detail on creating you own keylogger from scratch. While this may seem like a valid skill to learn, this takes up fully the latest third of the book, which should have been spent on metasploit, nmap, etc. Most of the content is an introduction to other tools with no true guidance on how to use them. On the one hand this is wise, because this book will be obsolete in a year or two if its instructions are to specific, but on the other, if you can give no specifics, don't write a book on it. I fully expect to be able to search detailed guides of the skimmed-over tools and methods in this book on YouTube at no cost. If you only wish a vague introduction to testing, this book is for you. Incidentally, testing is, by extension, probably not.

It covers all the basics and a couple of exercises to allow you jump into true hacking, yes you have to research a small bit more to create those examples to work, but that's exactly what hacking is about and it comes with no catch because the author explains it very is book is a must for anyone in Pentesting/Hacking to have all the basics if needed.And... like if that was not enough... the book comes with a full gift at the end, practically another full book on how to write a Keylogger for WindowsI have been devouring plenty books about hacking for beginners and trust me, it doesn't obtain any better than is is your Kick Off Book for sure

    I hate to slam an independent author like this, but... "right is right" and "wrong is wrong." With that said, this book is y points:1. At first, it started off with improper terminology being used. I gave the author the benefit of the doubt and figured he was trying to appeal to beginners. I disagree with this entirely though... learn it right the first time!2. This probably should be #1, but my next necessary point I need to bring to your attention is syntax errors. This is a large deal for beginners and I guess from my point of view I was able to obtain some code review practice on how not to write code. Improper upper/lowercase hero usage, typos, and random pipes out of nowhere throughout the book. Terrible, terrible, not good for folks trying to learn and just getting started.3. Photos chopped and chop off. Are you kidding me? And portions of the photos that are missing are very necessary things like while loops! On top of this carelessness, there are random locations in front of sentences and on fresh paragraphs. It's as if no one, not even the author, proof read this book and they pushed out a rough draft. There is even the use of "one" instead of on within a sentence... I wondered if the author was writing this on an android device device using auto correct at times while reading this book.4. Seems like the author is English as a second language. Nothing wrong with that! Just be prepared for unusual sentences that make more confusion that conclusion, I highly advise versus purchasing this book. First half the book is very primary concepts of ethical hacking/pen testing that can be easily researched for free online and include far greater accuracy and content. The second half of this book is a poorly written C++ introduction with so a lot of errors that it isn't worth your time or energy to invest ank you for reading this review. I'll be sure to write a positive one for a book I've recently read, to make balance in the universe. Wish an awesome hacking book? Go obtain a copy of Hacking: The Art of Exploitation, by Jon have been warned...

Hopefully the folks starting out and growing up will utilize this and other books to realize that there is a bigger globe out there, and that it is navigable, but like anything else what you obtain out of it depends on what you place into are not going to be able to pull off the next huge department shop cyber-crime after reading this book. But you are going to know a lot more about the exact tools and steps you will need for either ethical or non-ethical hacking. The book does not create a moral choice for you, that is of course up to you. But it does go a long and succinct method to begin you on a much longer journey. And if by possibility you happen to casually meander in to the dark underbelly of the digital universe, at least this book is a signpost to tutorial you.I applaud Alan for his work in getting you started on the street to discovering a bigger world.Highly recommended as an introductory book for hacking.

    Computer Hacking Beginners Guide: How to Hack Wireless Network, Basic Security and Testing, Kali Linux, Your First Hack []  2020-12-26 19:58

    I gave it an honest effort hoping to obtain a small something out of it, but the content is rudimentary at best. I guess it would be amazing for someone who's never worked in the IT industry to obtain a 10,000 foot flyby view of the basics of security. But honestly, if you have ever worked in any IT field with even a year of focus on primary security, you won't obtain much from this book. I would consider myself a beginner when it comes to "hacking", so between the title and the near 5 star rating, I was mislead.

    It is instructive. I do not know much on the topic and I am not interested in attempting hacking but it may be useful to the general public. The detailed programming explanation in the latest part of the book seems somewhat out of tone with the very general considerations in the first part. I would like to see that programing part extended to some other language like Java or Python. In some way, the book although amazing seems to me somewhat unbalanced.

    Among all the books I have read, this is the best one. It covers all the basics and a couple of exercises to allow you jump into true hacking, yes you have to research a small bit more to create those examples to work, but that's exactly what hacking is about and it comes with no catch because the author explains it very is book is a must for anyone in Pentesting/Hacking to have all the basics if needed.And... like if that was not enough... the book comes with a full gift at the end, practically another full book on how to write a Keylogger for WindowsI have been devouring plenty books about hacking for beginners and trust me, it doesn't obtain any better than is is your Kick Off Book for sure

    I hate to slam an independent author like this, but... "right is right" and "wrong is wrong." With that said, this book is y points:1. At first, it started off with improper terminology being used. I gave the author the benefit of the doubt and figured he was trying to appeal to beginners. I disagree with this entirely though... learn it right the first time!2. This probably should be #1, but my next necessary point I need to bring to your attention is syntax errors. This is a large deal for beginners and I guess from my point of view I was able to obtain some code review practice on how not to write code. Improper upper/lowercase hero usage, typos, and random pipes out of nowhere throughout the book. Terrible, terrible, not good for folks trying to learn and just getting started.3. Photos chopped and chop off. Are you kidding me? And portions of the photos that are missing are very necessary things like while loops! On top of this carelessness, there are random locations in front of sentences and on fresh paragraphs. It's as if no one, not even the author, proof read this book and they pushed out a rough draft. There is even the use of "one" instead of on within a sentence... I wondered if the author was writing this on an android device device using auto correct at times while reading this book.4. Seems like the author is English as a second language. Nothing wrong with that! Just be prepared for unusual sentences that make more confusion that conclusion, I highly advise versus purchasing this book. First half the book is very primary concepts of ethical hacking/pen testing that can be easily researched for free online and include far greater accuracy and content. The second half of this book is a poorly written C++ introduction with so a lot of errors that it isn't worth your time or energy to invest ank you for reading this review. I'll be sure to write a positive one for a book I've recently read, to make balance in the universe. Wish an awesome hacking book? Go obtain a copy of Hacking: The Art of Exploitation, by Jon have been warned...

    I have always been interested in hacking and I had some prior knowledge until this book. But my previous book didn't have so much info which the beginner can understand easy. I like how the book goes into hacking and simple to follow steps for a beginner. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in hacking - beginners or masters! Full of amazing useful information. I learned a lot. I recommend this book to everyone who wants to learn to hack.

    This book went into far too much detail on creating you own keylogger from scratch. While this may seem like a valid skill to learn, this takes up fully the latest third of the book, which should have been spent on metasploit, nmap, etc. Most of the content is an introduction to other tools with no true guidance on how to use them. On the one hand this is wise, because this book will be obsolete in a year or two if its instructions are to specific, but on the other, if you can give no specifics, don't write a book on it. I fully expect to be able to search detailed guides of the skimmed-over tools and methods in this book on YouTube at no cost. If you only wish a vague introduction to testing, this book is for you. Incidentally, testing is, by extension, probably not.

    Computer Hacking Beginners Guide: How to Hack Wireless Network, Basic Security and Testing, Kali Linux, Your First Hack []  2020-9-8 18:1

    The premise of Hacking: Computer Hacking for Beginners Tutorial by Alan T. Norman is to teach you about terms and language surrounding “hacking” in general. In specific Alan takes on the daunting task of trying to espouse ethics and morals surrounding hacking, including Black Hat, Grey Hat and White Hat hacking and what the differences are. He also takes on the task of teaching you C++ at a very introductory but functional level so that you actually learn how to program and debug your own r a little book with lofty goals, he accomplishes these tasks surprisingly well. It is clear through reading the book that Alan is a teacher, and he does a amazing job at training you about your topic and then accomplishing your task. I was actually surprised by how much I learned. The context of this statement is that I am a cyber-security professional and a training professional as is is a really perfect book. I was surprised at how clearly Alan elucidates what hacker really means, and goes to amazing pains to explain Black Hats, Grey Hats, and White Hats. Alan tells you in words and figures that there are no short cuts; it is all about learning and experience. He takes a far more ethical bent than I would have expected. This is a amazing beginner book for anyone who is curious, wants to know more, and wants to defend themselves. This is even a amazing book if you have less than ethical motives, and just need to know what words mean and how to obtain started in hacking.While it is clear to me that Alan is not a native US English speaker from some of the expressions and mannerisms in his language, he is still quite clear in expressing himself, and other than a few linguistic idioms there is no confusion as to what he is explaining to you, the reader, and what he wants you to do. Typographical and grammatical errors are few and far between, so it has been well , I read the book on a combination of Samsung S-7 intelligent phone, Amazon Kindle, and computer screen. What I can tell you for sure is that the diagrams in the book, the code examples, are going to be too little to see well on a little screen. You can magnify them quite a bit and they are viewable, but if you really wish to obtain everything you need out of this book, you should be on a full size screen – e.g. 11 inches or bigger. Since theoretically you should be doing everything on a computer anyway, not a tablet, that should not show a issue as you can simply read the book in a Kindle reading app; but it is a factor if you are a commuting reader or a work reader like I is book is like putting on a diving mask for the first time, and catching that exciting glimpse of a whole WORLD under the sea where before you just saw a mass of water.

    It is astounding how much we authentically are oblivious to the globe of hackers. This book gave me quite the conception of what hackers of and how they obtain into our private information. I never kenned that there were as a lot of hackers in the globe today and this book availed expound all of the variants and what they do online.
