Title: Hacking Exposed: Network Security Secrets & Solutions, Fourth Edition (Hacking Exposed)
Publisher: McGraw-Hill Osborne Media
Authors: Stuart McClure, Joel Scambray, George Kurtz
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Better and most useful


"Secrets and Lies" by Bruce Schneier taught me that computer security is much more than building better firewalls and managing them well. "Hacking Exposed" showed me what that means in practice. Scambray and McClure have all the knowledge and tools to look at the front door of the network, but also know that most hacks come through social engineering, unguarded other entrances, email delivered trojans, and other techniques that bypass the firewall entirely. That's the real world, and they treat it with gusto, vibrancy, and deep understanding. Most computer books are "just the faqs" dumps of the subject, with a little organization. These guys put you right inthe middle of things, and their knowledge clearly comes from intense practice, not theory. Dave Burstein

Title: Programming Jakarta Struts, 2nd Edition

Authors: Chuck Cavaness

to few examples


There are now several books on the market about Struts. The biggest strength I've found in this book is how each of the topics are explained well. Many of the other books cover a lot or show some neat examples but they don't seem to explain them in as great as detail as this author does. You really get a good understanding of what is going on based on his clear writing style. Since Struts is constantly advancing there are some things not covered in this book, but this book will definitely get you grounded in a true understanding of the concepts.

Title: Windows NT Shell Scripting
Publisher: Pearson Education
Authors: Timothy Hill
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Excellent examination of NT's built-in script functions


Hill's book is very good.
He provides many examples of techniques not generally known. For instance, how to perform math in a script and create arrays. There are quite a few detailed examples of useful scripts. For instance, there are scripts to automate adding users to NT and editing the registry. There are also discussions of how to use toold from the Resource Kits in your scripts.
This book is a worthwhile purchase for system managers who are trying to maximize their knowledge about NT's built in script functions.
