   After reading this you will most likely come to the conclusion that truly secure software is an unattainable goal.

    A brief history of software flaws followed by short but informative chapter on reversing basics and tools comprise the first 145 pages. Included in these first pages is a section on IDA plugins. IDA is also used in other places.

    Many techniques of exploits are discussed and practical advice on analysis and auditing.

    Good expamples are used in the book for each section of targets. Not much in the way of code samples or tools. But some great information is given for attack pattern and analysis.

    Give it **** out of 5 asterisks.

definitely a great resource to have around.

I agree for the most part with OpsMan.  I read this.

Strengths are laying out attack patterns and typical hacker approaches.

Weaknesses involve a lack of detail or explanation in some of the detail he does give.

This is a nice book to pick up but only after "Dissassembling Code" and "Reversing".
