    Thumbs up Another good book to read.

    Since the topic of books and such are popping up recently. I thought I would let you all know about another good book I just picked up.

    Incident Response: Investigating Computer Crime
    By: Kevin Mandia and Chris Prosise
    ISBN 0-07-213182-9
    Osborne/McGraw-Hill Publishing
    Web site: http://www.incidentresponsebook.com

    It is an excellent book on networking security. As well the web site is not that bad either.

    Kevin Mandia.....Hmm alias of Kevin Mitnick? LOL just joking however for a lot of newbies and people that are just getting into the technical aspects of computers (such as me, could always do just didn't know why it worked!) "A Complete H@ckers Handbook" by Dr. K breaks down alot of things that are super technical such as...

    1.TCP/IP
    2. PGP
    3.OSI model
    4. Packet Spoofing
    5. CGI scripting and how it runs
    6. SAM authentication
    7. Phreaking and PBX's
    8. Viri authoring and Cracking

    I have to say for myself it is always good to see a legal disclaimer in the front of a book, it also has 1 1/2 pages of hacking websites and examples. I picked it up thinking that it would be a whitehat watch-for guide however it turned out to be good reading. If anyone else has read this book please let me know what you think of it.
    Beware the quiet ones...
