Beginning with a basic primer on reverse engineering-including computer internals, operating systems, and assembly language-and then discussing the various applications of reverse engineering, this book provides readers with practical, in-depth techniques for software reverse engineering. The book is broken into two parts, the first deals with security-related reverse engineering and the second explores the more practical aspects of reverse engineering. In addition, the author explains how to reverse engineer a third-party software library to improve interfacing and how to reverse engineer a competitor's software to build a better product. * The first popular book to show how software reverse engineering can help defend against security threats, speed up development, and unlock the secrets of competitive products * Helps developers plug security holes by demonstrating how hackers exploit reverse engineering techniques to crack copy-protection schemes and identify software targets for viruses and other malware * Offers a primer on advanced reverse-engineering, delving into "disassembly"-code-level reverse engineering-and explaining how to decipher assembly language

"The Metasploit Framework makes discovering, exploiting, and sharing vulnerabilities quick and relatively painless. But while Metasploit is used by security professionals everywhere, documentation is lacking and the tool can be hard to grasp for first-time users. Metasploit: A Penetration Tester's Guide fills this gap by teaching you how to harness the Framework, use its many features, and interact with the vibrant community of Metasploit contributors. The authors begin by building a foundation for penetration testing and establishing a fundamental methodology. From there, they explain the Framework's conventions, interfaces, and module system, as they show you how to assess networks with Metasploit by launching simulated attacks. Having mastered the essentials, you'll move on to advanced penetration testing techniques, including network reconnaissance and enumeration, client-side attacks, devastating wireless attacks, and targeted social engineering attacks. Metasploit: A Penetration Tester's Guide willteach you how to: Find and exploit unmaintained, misconfigured, and unpatched systems Perform reconnaissance and find valuable information about your target Bypass anti-virus technologies and circumvent security controls Integrate Nmap, NeXpose, and Nessus with Metasploit to automate discovery Use the Meterpreter shell to launch further attacks from inside the network Harness standalone Metasploit utilities, third-party tools, and plug-ins Learn how to write your own Meterpreter post exploitation modules and scripts You'll even touch on exploit discovery for zero-day research, write a fuzzer, port existing exploits into the Framework, and learn how to cover your tracks. Whether your goal is to make your own networks more secure or to put someone else's to the test, Metasploit: A Penetration Tester's Guide will take you there and beyond"--

This book is an excellent guide for you on how to use Nmap 7. The first part of the book guides you on how to get started with Nmap by installing it on the various types of operating systems. You are then guided on how to scan a network for SMB (Server Message Vulnerabilities). This will help you learn how to gather information from a target host. You are also guided on how to scan a network for the open ports. Such ports are an advantage to hackers, as they can allow them to gain unauthorized access into your network. Information encrypted with SSL/TLS encryption is prone to the heartbleed bug. You are guided to test whether your information is vulnerable to this bug. The process of determining the live hosts on a network is also explored in detail. Live hosts can be compromised for an attacker to gain valuable information from such hosts. The process of scanning a network firewall is also examined in detail. This will help you determine the ports which are open. You will also learn the services which have been assigned to the various ports on the firewall. The process of performing layer 2 discoveries with Nmap is explored in detail, thus, you will know how to do it. You are also guided on how to grab banners using Nmap. The process of gathering network information with Nmap as well as penetrating into servers is then discussed. The following topics are discussed in this book: - Getting Started with Nmap - Scanning for SMB Vulnerabilities - Scanning for Open Ports - Testing for HeartBleed Bug - Detecting Live Hosts - Firewall Scanning - Performing Layer 2 Discovery - Banner Grabbing - Information Gathering - Penetrating into Servers

Hein with Adam Boggs, Rob Braun, Ned McClain, Dan Crawl, Lynda McGinley, and Todd Miller "This is not a nice, neat book for a nice, clean world. It's a nasty book for a nasty world. This is a book for the rest of us." –Eric Allman and Marshall Kirk McKusick "I am pleased to welcome Linux to the UNIX System Administration Handbook!" –Linus Torvalds, Transmeta "This book is most welcome!" –Dennis Ritchie, AT&T Bell Laboratories This new edition of the world's most comprehensive guide to UNIX system administration is an ideal tutorial for those new to administration and an invaluable reference for experienced professionals. The third edition has been expanded to include "direct from the frontlines" coverage of Red Hat Linux. UNIX System Administration Handbook describes every aspect of system administration–from basic topics to UNIX esoterica–and provides explicit coverage of four popular UNIX systems: This book stresses a practical approach to system administration. It's packed with war stories and pragmatic advice, not just theory and watered-down restatements of the manuals. Difficult subjects such as sendmail, kernel building, and DNS configuration are tackled head-on. Examples are provided for all four versions of UNIX and are drawn from real-life systems–warts and all. "This book is where I turn first when I have system administration questions. It is truly a wonderful resource and always within reach of my terminal." –W. Richard Stevens, author of numerous books on UNIX and TCP/IP "This is a comprehensive guide to the care and feeding of UNIX systems. The authors present the facts along with seasoned advice and numerous real-world examples. Their perspective on the variations among systems is valuable for anyone who runs a heterogeneous computing facility." –Pat Parseghian, Transmeta "We noticed your book on the staff recommendations shelf at our local bookstore: 'Very clear, a masterful interpretation of the subject.' We were most impressed, until we noticed that the same staff member had also recommended Aunt Bea's Mayberry Cookbook." –Shannon Bloomstran, history teacher
