    iceni60,

    Pick up a copy of "How I Broke My Computer Addiction" by Noe Use.

    It doesn't work but it makes for humorous reading. :D

    i did see the noe use, but i still wasnt totally sure. it sounds like it could have been some kind of joke book. maybe, i'll make the most of my time away and write "How I Broke My Computer Addiction" by Noe Use. if it becomes a big hit, well, that will teach you :D

    I've heard the "Anti-hacker Toolkit" by Mike Shema is pretty good. ;)

    thanks for the replies :) i'll check them out. here is something about Anti-Hacker Tool Kit. it sounds like its about experienced-based coverage on key security tools and how to use them. read the paragraph and you'll see what i mean :eek: thanks :)

    For a good introduction to networking, you could try Douglas Comer's Internetworking with TCP/IP Volume 1 - after this you should be able to bedazzle any mortal with your command of network-related TLAs and FLAs. Stealing the Network: How to Own a Continent looks like an interesting (albeit fictional) read on cracking, including usage examples of various tools like NMap - check out Fyodor's chapter for a preview.

    However, depending on which part of the country you're in, this really should be more relevant. ;)

    Take a look here ICE, LabMice.net. Good selection with reviews.
    Moving in P2k's direction, click on networking from the left (TCP/IP :eek: ).

    No disrespect P2k :D as I appreciate any advice offered by your excellent posts.
    I've got a feeling that book by Doug Comer should be next on my list of "required reading", thanks. :cool:

    Just wait a moment: The Cuckoo's egg by Cliffort Stoll.

    A classic about computer security, if ever there was one.

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    If you're still there..........
    The Art of Deception by Kevin Mitnick is a good read
    www.promo.net/pg gives ya "The Art of War" by Sun Tzu free of cost
    a ver good author is Ankit Fadia (studying at stanford) and his books are in Macmillian Publishing... I beleive you know him as an erstwhile hacker who exposed (repeatedly) international black hat hacking groups who had designs on Indian websites.
    his books are like very simple tutorials... "An ethical guide to hacking", "Network Security : A Hacker's Perspective", and his new book was "Corporate security" i think, for which he went back to India.
    Another one is "Hackers' Black Book"

    Not sure of your level, but you can try

    "Malware- Fighting Malicious code" -Ed Skoudis

    PS for a security related forum, I find it strange that most people don't seem to mention good security books.
