Lots of hacker info in fictional, first-person story teller form. It's a collection of short, independent, stories. Very well written, hard to put down. I also picked up even more little utilities and tidbits I hadn't seen before. The HTTP referral field, in particular, can contain a username and password in the a:b@c.com form, if the user logged in to the original site that way. That's horrible (if true, I haven't checked)! I think I'm going to grep my logs and see what I find... Other things like when the cracker thinks: "Just why they have this system configured as a backup domain controller when it sits in the DMZ is beyond me, but I'll take it." It's a common error, reflecting a profound lack of network understanding. Lovely book. Can't wait to read the sequel (Stealing the Network: how to own a continent).
