Review:

Written by an anonymous hacker, Maximum Security details hundreds of ways in which invaders may be able to penetrate your system and the steps that you can take to stop them. Before he was arrested, the author used his considerable talents to crack ATMs. Drawing on his vast experience, the author takes you on a journey of the tools that crackers have at their disposal, the ways in which they exploit holes in popular operating systems, and what protective measures are available for each.

At nearly 900 pages, this volume is not only an excellent reference source, but also a testimony to the sheer volume of techniques available to those who wish to illicitly gain access to systems. If you're a system administrator, this book will, quite simply, scare you silly--and it should. It will also help you take preventative steps that will ultimately allow you a well-deserved peace of mind. An included CD-ROM contains a selection of security utilities, such as SAFEsuite, a demo of PORTUS Secure Firewall, and the famous SATAN (Security Administrator Tool for Analyzing Networks), which are all discussed within the book.
