Examines where security holes come from, how to discover them, how hackers exploit them and take control of systems on a daily basis, and most importantly, how to close these security holes so they never occur again
A unique author team-a blend of industry and underground experts- explain the techniques that readers can use to uncover security holes in any software or operating system
Shows how to pinpoint vulnerabilities in popular operating systems (including Windows, Linux, and Solaris) and applications (including MS SQL Server and Oracle databases)...
While it is important for network administrators to secure any host connected to the Internet, they must give name servers special consideration due to the important role they play. The purpose of this document is to outline some common steps that can be taken to secure an Internet Name Server from various types of attacks.

The term cloud computing refers to an Internet-based technology through which
information is stored in servers and provided as a service (Software as a Service,or

cess all of their documents and data from any device (the personal laptop, the mo-
bile phone, an Internet Point..), as they already do for email services, and to
exploit impressive computational capabilities.
