News from the 
Hacker War Front

Überhacker II -- More Ways to Break into a Computer with CD-ROM with tools for Windows, Linux and Unix. By Carolyn Meinel, second edition, Oct. 2003.

This book reveals how the experts *legally* test systems for security flaws and how they discover new flaws. See also Software Security: Building Security In, by Gary McGraw, chief technology officer of Cigital, for tools and techniques. Meinel highly recommends that you read McGraw's book as well as hers.

The difference between these books is that Überhacker II shows how to set up a low cost hacker laboratory that you can quickly reconfigure with many operating systems, and how to run wargames with your friends while minimizing the risk that criminals might break into your laboratory network. By contrast, Software Security: Building Security In is better for people who are working in a corporate environment with big budgets. It does not cover how to set up a test network or run wargames, but unlike Meinel's book goes into depth on software design and testing methodologies.
