2009 | ISBN: 0071613749 | Sixth Edition | PDF | 720 pages | 15 Mb
This book giving a big overview of the hacking scene. Mainly focused on old-school hacking(networking), it's a good read before attacking the other books of the series (Hacking Windows Exposed, Hacking Linux Exposed, etc), it will give you a introduction to those more focused readings. Maybe on some chapters, the authors abuse the list of tools, not paying much attention to the concept behind, but in a general way its well balanced.
