Guide Review - Book Review: Hacking Linux Exposed - 2nd Edition
Hacking Exposed books have set the bar for this genre of security book.
Hacking Linux Exposed - 2nd Edition doesn't fail in meeting that bar as
well. If you've read Hacking Exposed - 4th Edition and think this book
can't tell you anything you don't already know- think again. For those
who administer Linux boxes this book provides an in-depth look at
specific hacks and vulnerabilities unique to the Linux operating system
and the accompanying fixes and workarounds to protect yourself. The
book is overflowing with examples and sample commands that users can
immediately put to use to better understand the risks and how to
mitigate them. Hacking Exposed is a must-read for security- this book
is a must-read for Linux security.
