Chained Exploits

Author: Andrew Whitaker
Publisher: Pearson Education
ISBN: 0321631684
Release Date: 2009-02-27
Genre: Computers

The complete guide to today’s hard-to-defend chained attacks: performing them and preventing them Nowadays, it’s rare for malicious hackers to rely on just one exploit or tool; instead, they use “chained” exploits that integrate multiple forms of attack to achieve their goals. Chained exploits are far more complex and far more difficult to defend. Few security or hacking books cover them well and most don’t cover them at all. Now there’s a book that brings together start-to-finish information about today’s most widespread chained exploits—both how to perform them and how to prevent them. Chained Exploits demonstrates this advanced hacking attack technique through detailed examples that reflect real-world attack strategies, use today’s most common attack tools, and focus on actual high-value targets, including credit card and healthcare data. Relentlessly thorough and realistic, this book covers the full spectrum of attack avenues, from wireless networks to physical access and social engineering. Writing for security, network, and other IT professionals, the authors take you through each attack, one step at a time, and then introduce today’s most effective countermeasures– both technical and human. Coverage includes: Constructing convincing new phishing attacks Discovering which sites other Web users are visiting Wreaking havoc on IT security via wireless networks Disrupting competitors’ Web sites Performing—and preventing—corporate espionage Destroying secure files Gaining access to private healthcare records Attacking the viewers of social networking pages Creating entirely new exploits and more Andrew Whitaker, Director of Enterprise InfoSec and Networking for Training Camp, has been featured in The Wall Street Journal and BusinessWeek. He coauthored Penetration Testing and Network Defense. Andrew was a winner of EC Council’s Instructor of Excellence Award. Keatron Evans is President and Chief Security Consultant of Blink Digital Security, LLC, a trainer for Training Camp, and winner of EC Council’s Instructor of Excellence Award. Jack B. Voth specializes in penetration testing, vulnerability assessment, and perimeter security.
