Publisher's Summary

Hacking is a term most of us shudder away from; we assume that it is only for those who have lots of programming skills and loose morals and that it is too hard for us to learn how to use it.

But what if you could work with hacking like a good thing, as a way to protect your own personal information and even the information of many customers for a large business?

This guidebook is going to spend some time taking a look at the world of hacking and some of the great techniques that come with this type of process as well.

Whether you are an unethical or ethical hacker, you will use a lot of the same techniques, and this guidebook is going to explore them in more detail along the way, turning you from a novice to a professional in no time.

Some of the different topics we will look at concerning hacking in this guidebook includes:

  • The basics of hacking and some of the benefits of learning how to use this programming technique.
  • The different types of hackers, why each one is important, and how they are different from one another.
  • How to work with your own penetration test.
  • The importance of strong passwords and how a professional hacker will attempt to break through these passwords.
  • A look at how to hack through a website of any company that doesn’t add in the right kind of security to the mix.
  • A look at how to hack through the different wireless networks that are out there to start a man-in-the-middle attack or another attack.
  • Some of the other common attacks that we need to work with including man-in-the-middle, denial-of-service attack malware, phishing, and so much more.
  • Some of the steps that you can take in order to ensure that your network will stay safe and secure, despite all of the threats out there.

Hacking is a term that most of us do not know that much about. We assume that only a select few can use hacking to gain their own personal advantage and that it is too immoral or too hard for most of us to learn.

But learning a bit of hacking can actually be the best way to keep your own network safe.

Are you ready to learn more about hacking and what it can do to the safety and security of your personal or business network?

An excellent book to discover a bigger world of ,,

The premise of Hacking: Computer Hacking for Beginners Guide by Alan T. Norman is to teach you about terms and language surrounding “hacking” in general. In specific Alan takes on the daunting task of trying to espouse ethics and morals surrounding hacking, including Black Hat, Grey Hat and White Hat hacking and what the differences are. He also takes on the task of teaching you C++ at a very introductory but functional level so that you actually learn how to program and debug your own key-logger.

Insights are unique and turn me perceive deeply

The topic about Hacking is new for me but very interesting. This guide was recommended me by my colleague. In the following chapters I found all I need to know to start basic hacking, from hacking computer networks to rigging a WiFi hotspot. This information, paired with some coding basics, provided me the basics for my hacking education. I found this book informative and it has answered many of the questions I had about hacking.

Nice book for listening

Amazing book. My best friend suggests this one. I have no idea about Hacking but now I have huge knowledge about this. It covers every one of the rudiments and a few activities to give anybody a chance to hop into genuine hacking. On the off chance that anybody remains the starting stage like me with the goal that's the ideal manual for them.

decent information terrible narration

The narration put me to sleep every second and was annoying. The "Tonight on the 6 o clock news!" voice was unbearable, but the information is decent.

This was a good book of basics for beginners

This was a good book of basics for beginners. The terminology is easy to understand and follow. The narrator explains everything thoroughly. My skills are a little ahead of this, it still gets four stars because it is informative and good to use as a quick reference guide.
