Introduction to Computer Hacking Security Testing Penetration Testing
Most people don’t really understand what hacking is about, much less how to go about it. It’s something that we just watch in movies or hear about on the news. This book, Hacking, Computer Hacking, Security Testing, Penetration Testing And Basic Security, is meant to help you understand hacking techniques in a broader and deeper way.
Hacking is commonly viewed as an illegal activity that is designed to steal data or money. Though it is true that some hackers out there use their skill for criminal activities, this is not what hacking is really about.
Hacking is simply a way of discovering ignored or unintended uses of a product or situation and then coming up with new ways of solving a problem.
In this book, you will learn how you can protect yourself from some of the most prevalent hacking schemes to date. How? By learning how to hack! That’s right. It would be inconceivable to expect to protect yourself and property from hackers without first understanding how hacking actually works.
If you want to stay ahead of hackers and perform your own counter-hack, you are in luck. You grabbed the right book. Here you will learn about the modern tools and advanced techniques that ethical and criminal hackers use.
Not only will you learn how to search for weaknesses in a security system, but you will also get to know how to identify a system that is under attack.
There are strategies that have been outlined here that will help you test the vulnerability of any system and prevent you from falling into black hat traps. This book is aimed at helping you improve information security for personal use as well as professionally.
It is therefore very important that understand how electronic devices can be compromised without you even being aware of it. The book uses simple language that beginners can understand. Experienced hackers who need to learn certain aspects of hacking in an in-depth manner can also use the book.
This book provides great tips on how to become an ethical hacker for an organization that needs to fix any vulnerabilities in its systems. The book is split into three parts, each discussing a different theme.
Part I sets us off into the world of hacking, its history, and where we are now.
Part II talks about the functional art of hacking various systems, networks, and applications.
Finally, part III relates to what to do and what not to do regarding ethical hacking, and what the future holds for hacking. You can start with any part that interests you and maneuver as you see fit.
We hope that by the time you finish reading this book, you will have learned enough to better protect yourself and also perform some ethical hacking of your own.
