Exploiting Software : How to Break Code

Submitted by admin on Tue, 08/14/2007 - 22:20.

Another of Gary McGraw's books. I am still in the process of reading this one, but let's start reviewing it. Gary goes into a look as to what the attack patterns and logic that an attacker would go through. It focuses on how to break and exploit software. It truly is the black hat book, it will teach you reverse engineering techniques, how malicious hackers think, what can be performed to break your software. It starts where Hacking Exposed left off, and will help you find 0day exploits and vulnerabilities before the bad guys do.

Gary is a very passionate author and this book once again out does itself. It has very good insights into the white hat and black hat mindsets. If you are working on any type of software product and are concerned about security, please pick up this book and read it. Then start finding those vulnerabilites and exploits before they do.
