9780071494267: Hacking Exposed Windows: Microsoft Windows Security Secrets and Solutions, Third Edition

The latest Windows security attack and defense strategies

"Securing Windows begins with reading this book." --James Costello (CISSP) IT Security Specialist, Honeywell

Meet the challenges of Windows security with the exclusive Hacking Exposed "attack-countermeasure" approach. Learn how real-world malicious hackers conduct reconnaissance of targets and then exploit common misconfigurations and software flaws on both clients and servers. See leading-edge exploitation techniques demonstrated, and learn how the latest countermeasures in Windows XP, Vista, and Server 2003/2008 can mitigate these attacks. Get practical advice based on the authors' and contributors' many years as security professionals hired to break into the world's largest IT infrastructures. Dramatically improve the security of Microsoft technology deployments of all sizes when you learn to:

  • Establish business relevance and context for security by highlighting real-world risks
  • Take a tour of the Windows security architecture from the hacker's perspective, exposing old and new vulnerabilities that can easily be avoided
  • Understand how hackers use reconnaissance techniques such as footprinting, scanning, banner grabbing, DNS queries, and Google searches to locate vulnerable Windows systems
  • Learn how information is extracted anonymously from Windows using simple NetBIOS, SMB, MSRPC, SNMP, and Active Directory enumeration techniques
  • Prevent the latest remote network exploits such as password grinding via WMI and Terminal Server, passive Kerberos logon sniffing, rogue server/man-in-the-middle attacks, and cracking vulnerable services
  • See up close how professional hackers reverse engineer and develop new Windows exploits
  • Identify and eliminate rootkits, malware, and stealth software
  • Fortify SQL Server against external and insider attacks
  • Harden your clients and users against the latest e-mail phishing, spyware, adware, and Internet Explorer threats
  • Deploy and configure the latest Windows security countermeasures, including BitLocker, Integrity Levels, User Account Control, the updated Windows Firewall, Group Policy, Vista Service Refactoring/Hardening, SafeSEH, GS, DEP, Patchguard, and Address Space Layout Randomization
