A must have for any IT or security professional

If you are responsible for IT resources you must have this book. If you are a security professional you must have this book.

This book will illustrate how Google can used by the bad guys to profile and enumerate your network infrastructure. Johnny Long does an excellent job explaining how Google works with advanced operators and how fiddling with syntax can yield interesting results.

He shows how a hacker can learn a ton of information about your network and company without ever sending a packet at your network.

You will learn how to find out information about misconfigured servers, "interesting" files left laying around servers, locating exploits, mapping networks and quite a bit more. But, you will learn how to defend and protect yourself against the evil Google hacker.

You will learn how to Google hack yourself as part of your penetration testing.
This is an easy read. You don't have to know about the OSI model or ACL rulesets. It should be on the bookshelf of every IT professional, and should be referred to often.

Hats off to Johnny Long for writing such an incredibly valuable resource.

This book is the one- it's awesome

I am an experienced C++ programmer. As a first-time user of Visual Basic, I was tasked to write a program that interacts with a SQL-Server database, the Windows registry, and external files (I hit a lot of topics). I used a variety of Windows Common controls, including ListView and TreeView controls.
Between this book and Visual Basic on-line documentation, I could do everything I wanted. This book has excellent examples - just what you need to do the obvious and basic tasks.
I also bought a "Using Visual Basic" by Eidahl, which was a waste.
