Remember the Masked Magician? He did a series of specials on television in which he exposed a good many magical acts, demonstrating exactly how they worked. The reason he did, he said, was to force magicians to create new tricks.

My point is that this is an analogous situation but not aimed at crackers. The book is, IMO, trying to force those responsible for system security to create new tchniques to thwarth crackers.

At any rate, Crackers don't use books from what I have heard. They go online, talk to others and download scripts if they are beginners. They don't need no steenking books. I, on the other hand, intend to get a copy as soon as I can. The information will be useful to lessen the number of mistakes I make. Any book that does that is a valuable commodity as far as I am concerned.

Wassercrats, I appreciate you bringing this subject up. Now I know it is a book worth buying and where to get it.
