The Virtual Bookcase Reviews of 'Hacking: The Art of Exploitation, 2nd Edition':

Reviewer Koos van den Hout wrote:
A book that lets the reader really experience and feel how computers are broken into and how exploits are written. You don't have to be a programming guru to get the feel for how easy it can be to exploit any simple programming error to get elevated privileges. The book is divided into several sections: programming, programming errors and their exploits, including building exploits that will get through most 'only safe input' filters, networking basics and attacks against network stacks, cryptology and attack methods on cryptologic methods. A good book to get a feel for how fast something innocent can be an entry-point for abuse.
