Hacking is the art of creative problem solving, whether that means finding an
unconventional solution to a difficult problem or exploiting holes in sloppy

Many people call themselves hackers, but few have the strong
technical foundation needed to really push the envelope.Rather than merely showing how to run existing exploits, author Jon Erickson explains how arcane hacking techniques actually work. To share the art and science of hacking in a way that is accessible to everyone, Hacking: The Art ofExploitation, 2nd Edition introduces the fundamentals of C programming from a hacker's perspective.
The included LiveCD provides a complete Linux programming and debugging
environment-all without modifying your current operating system. Use it to follow along with the book's examples as you fill gaps in your knowledge and explore hacking techniques on your own. Get your hands dirty debugging code, overflowing buffers, hijacking network communications, bypassing protections, exploiting cryptographic weaknesses, and perhaps even inventing new exploits. This book will teach you how to:
Program computers using C, assembly language, and shell scripts
Corrupt system memory to run arbitrary code using buffer overflows and format
stringsInspect processor registers and system memory with a debugger to gain a real understanding of what is happeningOutsmart common security measures like nonexecutable stacks and intrusion detection systemsGain access to a remote server using port-binding or connect-back shellcode, and alter a server's logging behavior to hide your presenceRedirect network traffic, conceal open ports, and hijack TCP connectionsCrack encrypted wireless traffic using the FMS attack, and speed up brute-force attacks using a password probability matrix.
Hackers are always pushing the boundaries, investigating the unknown, and evolving their art. Even if you don't already know how to program, Hacking: The Art of Exploitation, 2nd Edition will give you a complete picture of programming, machine architecture, network communications, and existing hacking techniques. Combine this knowledge with the included Linux environment, and all you need is your own creativity.
