Review:

Excerpts from review by Patrick Mueller
... a proficient work...offers a smorgasbord of topics geared towards moderate- and advanced-level practitioners...The authors touch on some deep technical issues, such as automated penetration testing and shellcode exploit construction...great command of the material...[authors] discuss a few refreshingly different topics -- such as vulnerability disclosure protocols -- that are hardly covered elsewhere.

The authors did...deliver on their ethical obligations to provide accurate countermeasures to attack methods they describe -- a true value to readers. ... security professionals will find value in the authors' formidable understanding of the material. (Information Security Magazine 2005-01-01)
