Hack Attacks Revealed
Hack Attacks Revealed by John Chirillo is one the best books for learning hacking.Its
a huge book of about 915 pages published by Wiley books.The book begins with the Hackers
Manifesto By MindGame which is quite "inspiring".The books starts off with TCP/IP .The
topics are covered with great depth.The author gives an account of the various exploits
in different OS's.The book's got a hacking coding section for learning C .This section is really
disorganised and is definitely not meant for first timers.There is a chapter dealing with
the various legal actions a hacker will have to face when caught.There's also a lot of literature
in the book regarding hacking and its ethics.For people who don't have much time on their
hands to read the complete book,the author has made a chapter which contains the entire
book material in brief.The free cd which with the book comes with Tiger Suite and a whole lot
of other tools like wardialers,spoofers etc.Tiger Suite is devastatingly cool .The suite consists
of a portscanner,sniffer and other tools including a server simulator .The book is priced at
about 40$ and is definitely worth it.

Let me start off by saying that in all fairness, I haven't read this book. However, for those of you considering it, may I offer a bit of blanket advice?
If a book starts with the "Hacker Manifesto" (which was written HOW long ago?) and ends with wardialers (which are HOW useful these days for criminals?), it's not worth the paper it was printed on.
Books like this are a dime a dozen these, and many contain nothing more than the old AntiCode archives on their CDs, and dozens of tutorials and articles ripped from around the web.

Didn't The Mentor write the Hacker Manifesto, aka The Conscience of a Hacker?
The book begins with the Hackers Manifesto By MindGame which is quite "inspiring".

Yeah the Mentor did write the Manifesto ... But this one is kindda different by Mind Game
I liked the ending ...
" Microsoft asked me where i wanted to go today ...
The only place where i want to go is
Straight to tommorow
I am a hacker of the future and this is my Manifesto ... "

Hmm... The book isn't Outdated. The language is really neat and all the information thats
contained in it is focussed on network security. The author just uses small intermissions to
include stuffs like the hacker's manifesto...

Kinda seems like another version of Hacking exposed.
