Introduction[ edit ] The introduction of the book states that hacking should only be done within the confines of the law, and only for productive reasons. The chapter covers control structures and other basic aspects of programming. The live CD provides an environment so that the reader can not only follow along with the examples in the book but do some programming themselves. Finding ways or holes in the system to change is an important part of exploitation. This chapter covers exploit techniques such as memory corruption, Buffer Overflows and format strings , especially using Perl and Bash shellcode. The OSI Model.
In my first review, I recommended this book for the programming chapter alone. I can no longer do that because the programming chapter is now an "Expanded introduction to fundamental programming concepts for beginners.
Think of it as Kernighan and Ritchie in pages. Erickson covers other introductory topics in a hurry, such as his network sockets description in the Networking section Chapter 4 , and his "Crash Course in Signals" in the Countermeasures section Chapter 6.
It's not that I don't like the author's introductions — I do. I just want to warn you that the introductions might be above the true beginner's head. This book is code intensive and if you don't have a programming background — preferably in Linux "C" — then this book may be of limited value. If you aren't into hacking Linux, or at least wanting to learn, then this book just might gather dust on your book shelf.
Because the programming chapter is now an introduction, I now recommend this book for the Exploitations chapter alone.
This chapter covers buffer and function overflows and the format string vulnerability. download the book and discover why strings should be formated like this: Monitor Your Network with Zabbix.
Managing Network Bandwidth with Trickle. Analyzing Network Traffic with Wireshark. The company behind the popular DevOps automation tool is releasing those proprietary add-ons built around the open source core. Kernel 4. The Art of Exploitation. By the way, if you are on a Mac then I recommend running the included CD -- which can easily be downloaded from torrent sites -- via VMware Fusion.
Just create a basic Linux machine or take an existing one and configure it to boot from the.
You will be able to run all of the exercises that way. OS X doesn't come with objdump. It has something called otool that I've never used. Plus OS X is bit and it probably has modern security features, like randomizing the stack space, that will break some of the examples. I cannot think of a more intellectually-enriching book I have read in the past five or six years.
I learned more than I ever cared to know about either of these things and so much more. It should be said, prior to downloading this book, my This book took me a long time to get through, longer than I care to admit, but I felt this journey paid mega-dividends many times over. It should be said, prior to downloading this book, my experience in programming was limited to a class I took in high school and some MATLAB applications in college - that is to say, I had never programmed in C, knew almost nothing about how computers actually worked, and had yet to spend a single second on Linux or the command line of any operating system.
Since then I have become comfortably familiar with C, basic and nonbasic Linux commands, programming in VI, reading assembly and writing shellcode. Ok, the last one is still pretty difficult. I learned everything I know about file permissions, networks, memory allocation, and buffer overflows from this book. These topics were explained well enough that I could probably explain the basics to just about anyone. I get the feeling I have only scratched the surface of powerful tools like the GNU Compiler and Debugger - and intend to learn more about both in the near future.
I recommend this book to everybody. It will take a long time to get through and wont always be easy in fact, its almost never easy but if you learn a fraction of what I learned, you'll find this book is worth its weight in gold.
One is the fact that the book is clearly written and builds up gradually so you're not required to have too much information about the subject before starting to read.
Second being the Livecd you can download and which works as a testing platform when you're learning the basics of programming or studying different kinds of exploits. I enjoyed reading and practicing while reading and my only beef with this book is that in my o This book is a good introductory in the subject for mainly two reasons. I enjoyed reading and practicing while reading and my only beef with this book is that in my opinion there were too many source code listings in the book.
Since all of the sourcecodes were in the Livecd I don't really understand why the author didn't just cut out the important parts of the sourcecodes and commented them in the book but instead pasted whole sourcecodes. It's a considerably minor thing but still while progressing started to hinder the reading experience.
All in all this is a very good and informative book with clear explanations and the fact that it came with a Livecd you could test and see the same results as in the book gives good hands-on experience.
Luckily, I have a pentesting machine that I have Kali Linux running on.
The website for the book has all of the source code, so I just downloaded it and run in on Kali and it was perfect for me.
