La faiblesse du maillon humain

En lisant ce livre de Mitnick, on comprend bien que l'ins?curit? informatique sera toujours d'actualit? tant que les intervenants en charge de la protection de nos machines se focaliseront uniquement sur le volet mat?riel et logiciel. a quoi bon mettre des barri?res si un utilisateur communique ses mots de passe par t?l?phone ? c'est ce qu'a bien compris Alain STEVENS, qui nous montre dans le Guide du Cyberd?tective (chiron Editions, ISBN 2702707831) que des recettes de social engineering sont disponibles en libre acc?s sur le net.

Title: Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 Administrator's Pocket Consultant
Publisher: Microsoft Press
Authors: William R. Stanek
Rating: 3/5
Customer opinion - 3 stars out of 5

I bought this book hoping for some admin-like advice, i.e. SSL usage, restrictive relay settings, MX records, etc. Unfortunately it comes up short on advice, but reads mostly like a reprint of the Exchange help files. If you're new to Exchange 2000/2003 this will help you find where they moved all the settings and controls...

Really outstanding - thorough and very readable

I'll just echo what many of the other reviewers have said - it's all here, in a very readable(and surprisingly enjoyable) book. Lots of examples, covers everything you would want to know about ADO.NET. Very well done.

The Perfect Doorstop

Like someone who wrote one of the earlier reviews, every few years I also find myself buying another 1,000+ page book about whatever new version of Windows I can finally no longer avoid installing. Then several years later I try (unsuccesfully) to give it away in a yard sale, never having looked at more than a handful of pages.
But this one is different. Excellent writing (even if it is a big, fat book; some things just can't be made short) and excellent information. (How happy are you when you've spent days looking for an obscure tidbit, and you turn to the index in a new book and not only find it, but three whole pages devoted to it?) This book had paid for itself before I even got out of the bookstore. (Ooops. I suppose I shouldn't have said that here.) And--even more amazing--I've actually spent time reading it since I got it home.
