    really good book on pc forensics

    I found an extremely kewl book at B&N called Hacker's Challenge, which basically gives 20 different examples of a network/system being broken into and gives logs and stuff. You gotta try to figure out things like what happened, what exploit was used, when it started, etc...very kewl book!

    “No, not anything. They name a lot of cars or clothes or swimming pools mostly and say how swell! But they all say the same things and nobody says anything different from anyone else. And most of the time in the cafes they have the joke-boxes on and the same jokes most of the time, or the musical wall lit and all the colored patterns running up and down, but it’s only color and all abstract. And at the museums, have you ever been? All abstract. That\'s all there is now...\"

    I have been reading Incident Responce (Investigating computer crime) I have found this title to have some great information, and really good links. I may post some if requested.

    Super,

    Incident Responce was written by the foundstone group. The same that put out hacking exposed. They have alot of information on their website "www.foundstone.com". If you would like some directly out of the book, just let me know. I usually check sites like "ntsecurity.nu & securityfocus.com for information" Other good sources are SANS for tutorials & white pages, and NSA for tips and guides on securing NT systems.
