Network Hacking and Shadows Hacking Attacks Free Book
Page Length : 450
This is the fourth book in the “Stealing the Network Series.” Reading through the ﬁrst three books, you can see how this series has evolved over the years. A concept that was hatched at Black Hat USA 2002 in Las Vegas became a reality as Stealing the Network: How to Own the Box was released at Black Hat USA 2003 in Las Vegas. This ﬁrst book brought together some of the most talented and creative minds in the security world, including Ryan Russell, Tim Mullen (Thor), FX, Dan Kaminsky, Joe Grand, Ken Pfeil, Ido Dubrawsky, Mark Burnett, and Paul Craig. In all honesty, “Stealing” was not conceived of as a series, but rather as merely a stand-alone book, an unrelated collection of short stories about hackers. But this ﬁrst book seemed to strike a chord within the security community, and it also generated a following among non-security professionals as well. Security professionals both enjoyed the stories and maybe more importantly learned to think more creatively about both attack and defense techniques. Non-security professionals were able to enjoy the stories and gain an understanding of the hacker world (from both sides of the law) that was beginning to dominate mainstream media headlines. The general public was being bombarded with stories about “hackers, ”identify theft, ”phishing,” and “spam,” but like many things, these terms were all painted with a very broad brushstroke and received only simplistic analysis. Stealing the Network: How to Own the Box changed that and provided the general public with a real understanding of the true world of hacking; that is, how criminals use hacking techniques to commit crimes and how law enforcement strives to prevent crimes and apprehend those responsible. After Stealing the Network: How to Own the Box was published, readers wanted more “Stealing” books, and the series was born.
