    Book: A Complete Hackers HandBook

    I recently bought "A Complete Hackers Handbook" by Dr-K .....

    to tell you the truth i was REALLY dissapointed....

    It explained alot of basics of TCP and Binary and how things worked to newbies, but went in NO detales at all about security issues and how to resolve them or find them.....

    I guess it really wasnt waht i expected

    i also bought the book but it helped me out a lot, probably because i am still new to the network administration side of the computer world. Up until now my only knowledge of computers was in programming and also a little hardware knowledge.

    Waterstones are usually good for security related books, in the UK. The Nottingham store is, anyway. Then there's Heffers in Cambridge who have shelves upon shelves full of computer books. PC stores such as Comet/PC World etc. don't tend to have anything useful, they just stock millions of copies of "Getting Started with Windows XP Home Edition" style books.

    an interesting book is '1984'.....sorry, just wanted to comment, I know it's not on topic. Also, Hackers Challenge, Hack Attacks Revealed, and Hacking Exposed are pretty informative.
