Now more than ever, it is imperative that users be able to protect their system from hackers trashing their Web sites or stealing information. Written by a reformed hacker, this comprehensive resource identifies security holes in common computer and network systems, allowing system administrators to discover faults inherent within their network- and work toward a solution to those problems.
From the early days of the Internet, when only e-mail servers were on the network, a hacker’s ultimate goal was to gain root
access to the UNIX host that ran these applications. With root access, the hacker had full control of the system and could
often collect enough information to gain access to the rest of the network and other partner networks. E-business application
hosts have increased the number of targets for hackers.
The Web has become the visible interface of the Internet
Many corporations now use the Web for advertising, marketing and sales
Web servers might be easy to use but…
Complicated to configure correctly and difficult to build without security flaws
They can serve as a security hole by which an adversary might be able to access other data and computer systems

Welcome to Unix and Linux, security for these operating systems is a complete paradigm shift from
Windows. Unix has been around a lot longer. The source code for Linux is freely available, so
would be attackers are free to examine it and test it for holes such as buffer overflows and deadlock
Hacking is the art of creative problem solving, whether that means finding an unconventional solution to a difficult problem or exploiting holes in sloppy programming. Many people call themselves hackers, but few have the strong technical foundation needed to really push the envelope.
IDON'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT ART, BUT I KNOW WHAT I DON'T like. I don't like paintings that go walkabout after I've set up the security system. I especially don't like them when I've packed my business partner off to the Antipodes for two months with the calm assurance that I can handle things while he's gone. The painting in question was a small Monet. When I say small, I mean in size, not in value. It would barely cover the hole my lover, Richard, punched in the wall of his living room in a moment of drunken ecstasy when...
Use the following procedure to remove the adjustable headrests. 1. Pull the headrest up to the highest position. 2. Push and hold the lock knob. 3. Remove the headrest from the seat. 4.

1. Align the headrest stalks with the holes in the seat. Make sure that the headrest is facing the correct direction. The stalk with the adjustment notches 1 must be installed in the hole with the lock knob...
To install an inexpensive pinning device in a double hung window, drill a 3/
16" hole from the inside window sash halfway through the outside sash at a
slight downward angle. Then insert a nail or pin into the hole to secure the
window. If the sash is wood, the pin can be made of such length as to set flush
with the sash. A magnet kept nearby can then be used to remove the pin. The
occupant must remember, however, that room windows are often used as a
means of escape from burning buildings and at least one window in each
room should be available for...
