    Hackers Challenge 2!

    Hi AO!

    I picked up a book called Hackers Challenge 2 .

    It is the sequel to Hackers Challenge .

    I have to say that I absolutely love the first one and I read it in about a week on the beach.
    So... I picked up the second one.

    So far I've only skimmed through it but I've liked what I've seen.

    They have all of your classic senarios and more. These challenges seem to be a little more difficult than the last ones. Seeing that I'm still a newbie with computer forensics, thats not a bad thing, cause I get to learn something.

    Has anyone else picked up this book, and if so, what do you think of it?

    If you have not yet purchased this book or the first one... I would recommend it.

    They are a great way to learn about the differend types/scenarios of an attack and how to counter it along with the tell tale signs of attacks and how to protect yourself from these attacks. Great reading!
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    well thats the whole idea of the book reviews.. some books are better written than others and some have different content.. go to and read what they have to say about the books their... read a varied wide range of books for a broader knowledge base..

    search this forum for book reviews on some books that you are interested and read reviews on them .... also remember dont just judge a book by its cover. the title doesnt really mean a lot ...

    An excellant read:

    ---->Network Intrusion Detection : An analysts handbook

    A bit of a tough read in places..but well worth it...

    never heard of hackers challenge (sounds interesting tho)..but the hacking exposed series were quite interesting....

    Happy Reading!!
