Chained Exploits: Advanced Hacking Attacks from Start to Finish

Chained Exploits: Advanced Hacking Attacks from Start to FinishThe 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

Pentest em redes sem fio tem o intuito de capacitar o leitor a entender e realizar o pentest em redes sem fio. Como complemento da obra Introdução ao pentest, do mesmo autor, este livro é focado exclusivamente em redes sem fio, mostrando as principais formas de ataque que um indivíduo mal-intencionado pode utilizar para acessar a sua rede sem fio. Simulando o pensamento de um cracker, este livro apresenta os passos e as técnicas necessárias para se obter o acesso à rede sem fio: Conhecer o funcionamento de uma rede sem fio na teoria e na prática: quais são os principais tipos de criptografia e como funcionam. Testar laboratórios e ambientes simulados: vamos entender por que os principais sistemas criptográficos falham e por que é tão simples hackear uma rede sem fio. Realizar o mapeamento de redes sem fio com softwares específicos para essa finalidade (GPS USB) e descobrir a localização física dos pontos de acesso. Saber como se defender por meio dos softwares de monitoramento e de detecção de intruso (wIDS e wIPS). Aprender a criar, de forma didática e explicativa, as redes sem fio mais seguras que existem: redes empresariais com certificados digitais autoassinados. Com todo esse armamento em mãos, realizar uma simulação de pentest e, ao final, aprender como é feita a escrita de um relatório de pentest para redes sem fio. Esta obra aborda os testes de intrusão em redes sem fio em detalhes. Após a leitura, certamente as redes nunca mais serão as mesmas.

Analyzing how hacks are done, so as to stop them in the future

Reverse engineering is the process of analyzing hardware or software and understanding it, without having access to the source code or design documents. Hackers are able to reverse engineer systems and exploit what they find with scary results. Now the good guys can use the same tools to thwart these threats. Practical Reverse Engineering goes under the hood of reverse engineering for security analysts, security engineers, and system programmers, so they can learn how to use these same processes to stop hackers in their tracks.
