- We can order this
Halting the Hacker provides a unique look inside the mind of the hacker--you'll understand how and why he makes the choices he does to attack your system. At the same time, you're getting practical, step-by-step information on how to foil him! Unlike many other security books, this book shows you why you need to take particular steps, rather than just listing what to do. This gives you knowledge you can apply to future, as-yet-unknown, attacks. Organized around how hackers gain access, control and privileges on your system, Halting the Hacker helps you understand how different subsystems can be used in harmony to attack your computer. Filled with dozens of up-to-the-minute real world examples, the book provides a vivid look at the consequences of ignoring security, and gives you numerous solutions you can put to immediate use. It contains specific steps for improving the security of your HP-UX and Linux systems.
