|Hacker's Handbook III||Littérature English|
This updated edition of The New Hacker's Handbook contains more sound advice on how to be a hacker: the term used to describe those people who break into Prince Philip's electronic mailbox and read his letters by guessing that the password he uses is ZORBA, or who try to tap into the Pentagon computer via phone lines and start World War III.
The book provides sound advice on the sort of equipment you're likely to need before you start hacking, and where to find sources of lucrative information once you do get going. One of the best sources of information is the bulletin board, and accompanying the advice are authentic excerpts from various guides to well-known operating systems which have appeared on hobbyist boards.
Hacker's Handbook III shows you how to ask the right kinds of questions: the organization using the system in question - is there any information being published about it? When was the hardware and software installed? Who supplied the system in question and is there anybody else using it?
There's quite a few useful hints and tips about arriving at a correct password (or entry validation procedure if you want to sound impressive) for a particular system. These will help you determine what sort of things to look for and illustrate likely conclusions to draw from that information. The book is sprinkled with recounted episodes of some of the more impressive hacks to date.
The would-be hacker is also warned of the various pitfalls in the trade and the consequent risks of unauthorized invasion (which, in some cases, is surprisingly easy), Hackers Handbook III will be as worthwhile for the comms enthusiast as it is for the serious hacker. It also supplies a clear and lively introduction to hacking for the novice whilst the troubleshooting section at the back provides answers to some of the most common queries that are likely to occur whatever the level of hacking experience.
