5-0 out of 5 stars Network Security Assessment
explainsa variety of exploits and tells you how to harden your network. This book is very well researched and extremely well written and is reader friendly, as some security books leave the reader lost in techno babble, not this book however very easy reading it now sits on my desk as a ready reckoner.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good book for security policy enablers and admins
This is one of the few books that I have come across that focuses mainly on the innards of security assessments. The services based security and counter measures are helpful for threat modeling. This book is really great for people in the security risk and threat analysis for a quantitative and qualitative validation. Good book to help in setting up corporate security policy model.
5-0 out of 5 stars Good Methodology and Specifics
I've read a heck of a lot of books on security assessments.Some turn into hacking manuals, others turn into windy documents on documenting the process and why each piece of the process is important.

4-0 out of 5 stars Snort 2.1
The information in this book was invalueable but sometimes it was hard to follow because it was poorly written

4-0 out of 5 stars Good introductionto Snort
Snort 2.1 Intrusion Detection (2nd Edition) is useful as a general introduction to intrusion detection and Snort. If you already have a good understanding of IDS technology you may find the IDS discussion to be a bit general in nature. For someone who only wants to review the basic IDS principals quickly and without a great deal of extra detail the IDS coverage in this book is sufficient. Much of the information on Snort felt like a retelling of Snort Users Manual from the Snort web site. Part of this feeling may be due to the fact that members of the Snort development team who undoubtedly had a hand in the user's manual wrote this book. This book does go into more detail on some subjects than the Snort Users Manual. There is a good step by step set of instructions for installing Snort and associated software on either a Windows or a Linux system. Overall this book seems to be a pretty good overview of Snort for someone looking to use only one resource, but I do not see anything that is not also available in other documentation available.

5-0 out of 5 stars Snort is moving fast
At the time of this review, the latest version of Snort is 2.3. However, the newest books(about two out there) on Snort, including this one, only covers up to version 2.1. And according to the Product Description, "in this community, major upgrades are noted by .x and not by full number upgrades as in 2.0 to 3.0". This pretty much means that this book is already out-dated, and it's printed in 2004, less than a year ago. This reminds me of when Linux was starting to get popular. Red Hat Linux went from version 6.2 to version 9.0 in just two years. Not to mention there are tons of books supposely dedicated to all those versions of Linux in the short two year period. Linux saved businesses a lot of money, and provided stability that MS Windows counterpart didn't. Snort will eventually replace or be at the same level as the current commercial Intrusion Detection Systems(IDS).

5-0 out of 5 stars Great new to intermediate level book
The Running Linux book is expanded and updated regularly and is designed to bring the casual and new user up to speed with using Linux as well as updated information.This is all done is a distribution-neutral context which makes it one of the better guides available.Of course that also presents problems when a particular distribution does something a little bit different from the norm.If you are a serious Linux enthusiast and have been for some time you will find the book too elementary for your needs but those new to Linux will find it a great introduction.The one real problem that I have with the book is that at times leaves out too much detail and as a result you can't really understand how to use something.An example is the entire section on MySQL and PHP.Then again, there are many excellent books available on these subjects and this is still more of an introductory guide so letting the reader know what can be done and then letting them seek out an appropriate text for the details is appropriate.Not to mention if it included all the details on all the subjects discussed then this would be a multi-volume work.
4-0 out of 5 stars Authors are so smart, they're dumb
This book is pitched, at least in part, to Linux beginners. But it fails in small, maddening ways when speaking to this audience. After a lot of discussion of disk partitioning and install, page 65 tells you to run the "man" command in a shell session. It offers no clue that the only way to terminate a "man" command is the letter Q - a completely unintuitive action. So a new user can flounder forever, or at least until they get frustrated and reboot. But I don't mean to slam just this book. That same problem exists in most other beginning Linux books, even O'Reilly's pocket guide. All these knowledgeable authors seem to think that noephytes will somehow magically gain access to information that the authors have in their heads, but haven't committed to paper.
5-0 out of 5 stars KEEP YOUR LINUX RUNNING
Are you a programmer who is increasingly using Linux because of its extensibility and low cost? If you are, then this book is for you! Authors Matthias Kalle Dalheimer and Matt Welsh, have done an outstanding job of writing this 5th edition of a practical guide that provides you with an overview to Linux as a desktop and a back-office system.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not as 1337 as it seems
I bought this book thinking that I might learn something new about how to protect my computer.After reading the first little bit I realized I already knew all of it because it was all already on the internet.Pretty much this guy got all of the (basic) tutorials for hacking on the internet and compiled them into a book.Also, almost nothing in this book will work if you have minor network security.All the people that gave this a 5 star rating are not very smart.They are impressed because some tough 1337 hacker told them how to crack into systems wreck havoc.Yeah, right.Save the money and read tutorials on the internet.Do not buy.

1-0 out of 5 stars oh no ankit fadia again....
wat is wrong wid all these people who are givin 5 star reviews to books written by l33t ankit fatia.cant u people see this is thrash.which respectable hacker would include chapters like changing ur windows 95 logon screen in their book,none besides the great ankit fadia,other cheap materialinclude outdated hacks n winblows 98 tricks.dis lama material was at times so boring dat even even my 11 yr ol bro who has just started outlearning bout hacking copuldnt stop laughing and complaining how boring dis read was.is he out of his mind wat was he thinking when he wrote this crap ,did he think its gonna help secure networks and ah windows 95 for ur hacks .why not tell people to get a linux distro fagg maybe ubuntu,mandrake,suse these r secure fatia and for god sake grow up from windows 95.i guess fadia doesnt really care bout all this , hes out there making money just becoz we have stupid kids buying these booksn think dey gonna hack the planet.from books to certifications to video seminars ,fadia is taking everybody for a ride.wonders wats planned next maybe a music video or dvd by mr fadia1-0 out of 5 stars Garbage
The book has nothing but garbage. Most of the vulnerabilities hes talking about have been fixed ages back. And all this stuff is free on the net. Especially the windows registry hacking is horrible. Hes just stolen the ones that fancied him and made it into a chapter. You'll get thousands of such tricks on the net. I wonder how the publisher had the nerve to publish this stolen junk and charge so much for it.

5-0 out of 5 stars get your highlighter, you can find something of value
Mr. Schafer writes about several different option strategies.More importantly, he covers several tools you can use ranging from magazine covers to VIX.He also touches on the "Greeks" and money management.The first 130 pages covers the tools and basics of options and the second half of the book covers specific option strategies and more details on how to spot a trade.
1-0 out of 5 stars Worst Newsletter Service
The service is a sure way to loose money. I consider myself as a novice investor but I can do better on my own than following his advise. Talking to service rep is waste of your time and effort. The service rep will listen to you but do nothing.
4-0 out of 5 stars Great Technical Analysis
Only 50% of the book is about options. The other 50% concentrates on how to use technical analysis to find winning stocks. It is probably the best book for the beginner and intermediate trader. With the Technical analysis, it can be used for both stocks and options. It belongs on every trader's shelf. The reason it didn't get a "5 Star" is that he really doesn't go into closing a position if the trade is going the wrong way. I pretty much had to learn that on my own. I have read it cover-to-cover 3 times and certain chapters at least 6 times. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Title.
This book only seems to prepare for about half the SNPA test and offer a lot of other information that's nice to know but not needed.One thing people might want to study is the stuff that has only one sentence written about it.For instance, that's great 5 pages might be written on phase 1 and 2 for VPN set up, but if there's one sentence written about how the "nat" command affects anything at all to do with VPN, study that.

5-0 out of 5 stars A top pick students will appreciate
The updated third edition of the Cisco Press edition of CCSP SNPA Official Exam Certification Guide (1587201526 $59.95) is a 'must' study guide for any interested in the exam. Network security consultant Michael Gibbs shares preparation tips and test-taking tips and points out common areas of weakness and places where refresher information comes in handy. The companion cd-rom offers a testing engine for either individual topic areas or the overall, timed exams and allows readers to self-test their knowledge, while chapters survey VPS remote configuration, Cisco access control servers, and more. A top pick students will appreciate.

5-0 out of 5 stars New Third Edition Covers the Latest Test
As anyone who has ever experienced a virus or network break in clearly understands, network security has become a major part of the management of any network that is exposed to the outside world. And I doubt that there is a major network anywhere that doesn't have at least some Cisco equipment. To go with the Cisco equipment has come an examination based certification procedure. This began with the CCSP (Cisco Certified Secure PIX firewall). As the equipment has progressed so has the examination. This book covers the current SNPA (Secure Network PIX ASA) exam, 642-522.

5-0 out of 5 stars Thanks to the missing .75 cents...
We get an incredibly engaging page-turner of an astronomer/system manager tracking down a foreign hacker. Cliff Stoll genuinely struggles and questions his own actions not knowing whether he is doggedly tracing some hapless student or a nefarious spy. In the end he overcomes his Berkeley counterculture distrust of all those three letter gov't agencies and develops a respect for their work if not their inability to coordinate or communicate interdepartmentally. He becomes a security expert they all seek but laments the lack of openness and the attack on trust that is required in the academic world in order to facilitate networking and the exchange of ideas. A really good story and there is a pretty good recipe for chocolate cookies on page 155.

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice reading with good technical coverage
"The Cuckoo's Egg" is a good book on computer hacking and espionage . It covers well all technical aspects involved in the case, stuff like UNIX, Tymnet and the very begining of system cracking.

This is a book by a MS Developer Security MVP for any and all developers writing ASP.NET 2.0 applications.

Yes, this is the best investing book I've ever read, but I never read the 2nd or 3rd editions so maybe they are better? I do know that the 5th edition is absolutely horrible, it wasn't written by Graham and has nothing to do with this book, and you won't learn anything about investing from reading it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Hardly a wasted word in this comprehensive guide to XP
"Windows XP Professional Security" (WXPPS) is a great way to learn about the newest technologies produced by the software engineers in Redmond.Although the "Windows XP" title suggests a focus on desktops, WXPPS is about enterprise strategies.It's surprising so much useful information can be packed into 400 pages.5-0 out of 5 stars A first-rate resource
Collaboratively written by security and networking consultant Chris Weber and Gary Bahadur (co-founder and CIO of Foundstone, Inc., a company that provides vulnerability management software, consulting, and training services to Fortune 500 clients), Windows XP Professional Security is an extensive and reliable guide to implementing and managing as secure a Windows XP environment as current technologies make possible. Individual chapters discuss a wide range of security-related topics including password management, firewalls, ways to prepare a computer system for the worst, and easy-to-understand instructions for taking advantage of all the new Windows XP security settings and features. A first-rate resource, Windows XP Professional Security should be required reading for anyone using Windows XP for personal, professional, or corporate purposes.

Defiantly more of a math book than a programming guide, but that was what I was expecting.This book explains how to use neural networks in the field of finance. It does so very logically and mathematically.You are shown how to apply neural networks to many different financial problems.But you are mostly left to yourself to actually implement the neural networks on a computer system.Some example source code is provided for MathCad, which is an expensive software package you can buy separately.

5-0 out of 5 stars A multiple vision of IT Security
This book is an excellent example of compilation of dozens of good works on IT Security. The quality of articles and the different points of view whereupon are treated turn to it an essential work. It only has a failure: such amount of information has been packed in only a volume that has forced the publisher to reduce both the font and the thickness of the paper to the maximum. Very bad for that no longer we havetwenty years and in addition we were used to mark the most interesting paragraphs with a pencil.

4-0 out of 5 stars Book content is excellent, but paper quality is worst ever
I am reading the fifth edition of this book. In the earlier editions the book was published in three or four volumes. The fifth editionis a combination of all volumes. So that is good.
5-0 out of 5 stars Volumes vs editions
Some of the reviewers are confusing 'volumes' with editions.Each edition of this book contains several volumes.Each volume contains new papers, adding them to the current edition of the ISMH.

3-0 out of 5 stars It is introduction to Computer Forensics
This is a textbook for computer forensics. It should be introduction to computer forensics. The book discuss overview of procedures and expectations of a computer forensic investigator. The technical sections in the book uses software to find information. Unfortunately, this information is basic and review for computer nerds.

1-0 out of 5 stars Wrong Book to use for College Course!
College Professors Listen Up! This is not the book to use for teaching Computer Forensics and Investigation. I am a student in a graduate course for Computer Forensics. The fact that this book uses strictly commercial software for all the exercises is sad. Especially since there are many Open Source tools available that can be used to conduct Computer Forensics. The software included with this book requires that the buyer obtain a license from the vendor, before the software can be used. Then the license is only good for 120 days. This is not fair to the buyer especially for students, who usually have no intent of keeping the book past the end of the semester. It would be better to use a book for the class that the students would find worth keeping for the long term. Also, a book that uses Open Source tools for the examples/exercises, would provide much more value to the students. A much better book to use would be 'Incident Response and Computer Forensics, 2nd Ed' by Chri Prosise, Kevin Mandia and Matt Pepe. If this book does not suite you, then I am sure that you can find another book to use.
3-0 out of 5 stars Only read it a little
I am a complete novice at computer forensics (CF).I am taking a technical college course in CF for which this was the required textbook as I write this.I wrote this review so Amazon would stop pestering me with emails asking me to write this review. I haven't finished the course or the book yet but in the absence of any other reviews maybe my experience will help others.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource for web masters
I read this book about a year ago and recently re-read it.Coar and Bowen provide an excellent pragmatic approach to taking care of common Apache administration tasks.The Apache "recipes" are well organized, and presented with sufficient depth to be understandable for intermedia users.
1-0 out of 5 stars Not beginner friendly
The kind of solutions this book gives are not aimed at someone like me, new and uncertain when it comes to linux. This is a dissapointment for me, as I have normally always been very pleased with O'Reilly books.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good accompaniment to other Apache books
As Cookbooks go, this on is fairly decent, although thinner than I expected.There are enough examples in this book to cover pretty much everything you might need to do with Apache or get you started (along with the Apache documentation) if it isn't covered.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars So very very good
When I read this, I was like oh my gosh, how could I ever code like that.
3-0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended
Accurate, to-the-point, and proper coverage of main topics. Good job on part of authors.
5-0 out of 5 stars Software Security lives
One of the authors here.John Viega and I were very pleased with this book, which seems to have ignited an entire field.Now that we have a few more years under our belts, I recommend that you check out Software Security: Building Security In for a treatment of how to put the software security philosophy in this book into practice.

5-0 out of 5 stars PHP Security is a HUGE topic
This book is essential for anyone starting out in PHP, but not only for them. It offers tips for almost any skill level, maybe you know some of the ways to keep your site secure but Chris really goes in depth on some of them.
5-0 out of 5 stars VERY VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
Are you a developer who is writing insecure PHP code? If you are, then this book is for you! Author Chris Shiflett, has done an outstanding job of writing a practical book that will help you improve your PHP application-level security.
5-0 out of 5 stars Essential for the Beginner or Advanced PHP developer
As a very security conscious developer, I found this book to be a GREAT resource to my library. Though the book is short in length, it is very rich in content. Chris does a GREAT job of presenting the problem (citing specific examples of the exploits), showing the pitfalls, and then presenting the solutions.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction
This well-written book is an excellent introduction to the data mining and predictive analytics space.The reader should be comfortable with data and data analysis.The reader, however, does not need any pre-existing knowledge specific to data mining and predictive analytics.Much of the book, including the middle chapters which describe specific analytic techniques, has general applicability to business problems beyond CRM.
3-0 out of 5 stars Practical examples not convincing, lack of benchmarking
While the book is easy to read and not too technical, the applications investigated by the authors are too simplistic and not really convincing as to why we should use advanced techniques. It would have been nice to add an additional, more detailed chapter comparing the various implementations of data mining techniques by software companies (SAS Entreprise Miner, Clementine, Insightfull Miner, etc.)

5-0 out of 5 stars Author's comment
Although this book was not written as a text book, we have noticed that it is frequently used that way. For the benefit of instructors, we have collected some exercises and datasets that can be used in the classroom or for self study.These can be found at www.data-miners.com/companion. ... Read more
