The Art of Intrusion: The Real Stories Behind the Exploits of Hackers, Intruders and Deceivers
El libro es muy entretenido. De hecho, en el anterior libro echaba de menos estas historias reales, por encima de los consejo que se intrusiln para evitar sufrir estos ataques.

In his bestselling The Art of Deception, Mitnick presented fictionalized case studies that illustrated how savvy computer crackers use “social engineering” to compromise even the most technically secure computer systems.
Now, in his new book, Mitnick goes one step further, offering hair-raising stories of real-life computer break-ins-and showing how the victims could have prevented them.

Full text of “Kevin Mitnick – The Art of (PDFy mirror)”
Mitnickthe legendary cyber desperado turned computer security consultant, is a compilation of security related case studies presented as fascinating anecdotes or techno-thriller stories, which explains some of the real-life methodologies and exploits that are employed in computer break-ins and cyber crimes.
What makes these stories valuable is the f The adage is true that the security systems have to win every time, the attacker only has to win once. What makes these stories valuable is the fact that instead of writing fictitious accounts of cyber crimes to illustrate each threat these anecdotes are a result of the interviews that Mitnick and his co-author William L.
Simon conducts with former hackers, phone phreaks and hacker turned cyber security specialists. Through Art of Intrusion, Kevin Mitnick attempts to make the reader aware of the common threats in the cyber domain and give him insights on counter-measures that can be employed against these threats. Mitnick describes this goal in the acknowledgement section of Art of Intrusion.
We wanted to write a book that would be both a crime thriller and an eye-opening guide to helping businesses protect their valuable information and computing resources. We strongly believe that by disclosing the common methodologies and techniques used by hackers to break into systems and networks, we can influence the community at large to adequately address these risks and threats posed by savvy adversaries.
Each of the scenarios that Mitnick presents are detailed with insider information on real-life descriptions and methods of breaching security and at times getting pretty technical. The Insights and Countermeasures section that follows each anecdote will provide the reader with essential tips on preventing such attacks.
It can help the security professional in cultivating an attitude of resolve and to shed the dangerous lethargy of overconfidence. Some of the technical aspects of these exploits that Mitnick discusses in this book may be outdated and software or hardware vulnerabilities that are taken advantage of are patched and made secure from the current viewpoint — not surprising since these incidences are from pre — but there is one true lesson that every information security professional can take from this book; those who try to breach any system will continue to do so by discovering brand new vulnerabilities and crafty methods to exploit those weaknesses.
Learning this mindset will make him prepared and able to cope with cyber crimes and much of the concepts are still relevant, especially those that exploit the human trust to perform a security breach. This book is recommended for anyone with an interest in information security, corporate security and law enforcement.
Since the contents can be a bit technical, having some background in the information security arena is desired, else the book may seem confusing or even hard to follow. Mar 04, Remo rated it really liked it Shelves: Mar 04, Valerie rated it liked it. This was an interesting book that reminds you, in several different ways, of the importance of defense in depth. A few of the attacks were vague as warned of by the author who collated the talesand others just lacked relevant technical details.
For example, “the outfit was running a Sun workstation, which is familiar ground for every hacker. What was the OS level? Still, the stories were entertaining. My biggest gripe with the book was the lack of This was an interesting book that reminds you, in several different ways, of the importance of defense in depth. My biggest gripe with the book was the lack of date ranges.
The book was published inso Levin know they’re all older than that – but with very few exceptions, I didn’t know if an individual tale was taking place in or This makes a difference for understanding what types of attacks were being used and how relevant such an attack would still be today.
An overall fun read – not condescending to technical readers, but also provides details on the subject matter for a non expert. My friends and I did get some pretty good discussions out of a few of the stories. Dec 24, Nate rated mittnick it was ok. This was not nearly as good as Mitnick’s biography “Ghost in the Wires” I think the target audience was a bit mixed. In some chapters, the authors went to great lengths to explain the technologies they were talking about e.
Unicode explanation was almost 1 paragraph. As if the reader would have no knowledge of technology or very limited knowledge. Then in other chapters, they would mention technologies almost in passing as if everyone knew about it.
I liked the final section of each chapter w This was not nearly as good as Mitnick’s biography “Ghost in the Wires” I think the target audience was a bit mixed. I liked the final section of each chapter kevjn they’d offer insights and counter-measures. Although, again, a lot of the counter-measures might be aimed a little high for example, locking down ports – most people won’t know how to do that.
It was a decent book, and the stories would have been better off just being told without the need to explain the details of spoofing an email address, or how to port scan.
Aug 12, Doug rated it really liked it. This book is not a textbook, nor is it an account of anything Kevin Mitnick ever did. After reading more about his history I can say that Kevin Mitnick will not be able to write about his experiences until intursion this year at the earliest.
Mitnick uses these experiences as examples and describes how the attacks could’ve been prevented. In the majority of cases the exploits described were a result of lazy or inattentive ne This book is not a textbook, nor is it an account of anything Kevin Mitnick ever did. In the majority of cases the exploits described were a result of lazy or inattentive network administrators. Nonetheless it is easy to get caught up in the excitement and often times you feel like an accomplice.
I would not recommend this book for someone that has miitnick experience in network and computer terminology. Especially if you want to understand what mitnixk going on. Mitnick attempts to describe these terms for a layman but the book would be much longer and the real audience would grow bored if he did a good job of this. It seems the intended audience is meant to have an understanding of networking and Mitnick outlines this at the outset of the book. In particular I found intrusioon interesting how easy some attacks are and even more interesting that some are still possible today.
This book is worthwhile for anyone interested in the history of hacking, protecting their own networks and websites or even for those looking to get started in hacking. Jul 24, James rated it it was amazing.
This is the first of Mitnick’s books that I’ve read and I really enjoyed it. There was enough technical content to keep the attention of those interested in the details but not too much as to slow down the pace of the book. The book is split into short stories of other hackers exploits and as a security consultant myself I found the stories both entertaining and thought provoking, if by now a little outdated.
As long as you atr think it’s a textbook and appreciate it for what it is I’d definitel This is the first of Mitnick’s books that I’ve read and I really enjoyed it. As long as you don’t think it’s a textbook and appreciate it for what it is I’d definitely recommended this to those interested in the area of computer security, which ever side of the fence you sit on.
Jan 20, pluton rated it liked it Shelves: Published inmost of the action in the book seems to be in the s, which doesn’t mean that those attacks are not interesting — they are still applicable today in general, just feel less modern. The stories weren’t very interesting because there are not much technical details, which apparently was the authors’ idea.
It is still good to read and think about those hacking stories: Oct 23, Kamel Riyad rated inntrusion really liked it. The stories on this book are eye opening for anyone working in the IT field.
The book is more of a fiction book, it’s not a technical book. The technology descried in the book are old Windows fo etc. A mix of best-in-class technical and social engineering advice with stories that are impossible to verify and probably not entirely true.
Particularly glaring is a story about the “Iraqi armed forces” speaking Farsi, which is so wrong that it makes the reader question everything else in the book. A good story collection – oversold Kevin Mitnick is a legend, a stories sound nice but they are sold through his household name and established notoriety and not through how well they are told.

Although it’s not much great details on how people did it, but it cover amount of amazing information that you may never think of. Aug 06, Lacey rated it really liked it. More interesting and more technical than The Art of Deception.
