ANKIT FADIA_UNOFFICIAL GUIDETO ETHICAL (English) 2nd Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs.499

An Unofficial Guide To Ethical Hacking by Ankit Fadia provides an introduction to the techniques of hacking.


Summary of The Book


Hacking involves the ability to penetrate any computer system or network, using its inherent weakness or security loopholes. The word has negative connotations, but the techniques can also be used in positive ways. An Unofficial Guide To Ethical Hacking, authored by Ankit Fadia, introduces the reader to the world of hacking, and explains the various techniques, and how they can used beneficially.


The word hacker generally invokes the picture of a technical wizard who exploits weaknesses in networks and systems for destructive purposes. But, hackers also work openly for companies that use their expertise to find the loopholes in their systems so that they can fix them before those weak points are exploited by others for negative purposes.


Hackers generally have a thorough knowledge of the system, the OS, hardware, security implementations, and especially the drawbacks in all of these. They can use these weak points to gain entry into the systems or networks where they have no official authorization.


The hackers community are now campaigning to change their image, to differentiate between ethical hackers and others who use the techniques for illegal activities. The hacking community generally refers to ethical hackers as hackers and criminal hackers as crackers.


Hackers use a variety of methods to gain access to a system. An Unofficial Guide To Ethical Hacking starts by explaining who is a hacker, and then takes the readers into the world of hacking. Various hacking methods are also explained. The author explores hacking into networks and the World Wide Web, and techniques used to gain access, types of of attacks, etc.


Privacy attacks, input validation attacks, password hacking,  denial of service attacks, and more such threats are discussed. The book then explains TCP/IP protocols, firewalls, and batch files and shows how some loopholes in these can be exploited by hackers. Then, the book takes a look at virus and exploit scripts.


An Unofficial Guide To Ethical Hacking is considered to be a good introduction to the subject of hacking and system security. It give a detailed explanation of the concepts, methods, and even types of hacking - a good introduction for those who want to get familiar with the hardcore internal working of a system.

Completely plagiarized from other materials.

This is one of the most worst book ever for hacking (as media calls it, computer culture calls it cracking). Ankit Fadia is a scumbag who just plagiarized other great books. PLease do not buy it! BTW google for "Ankit Fadia fraud" or read the Controversy section in his wikipedia article.

BACK DATED BOOK

MONEY WASTED FOR THIS BACKDATED BOOK 'AN UNOFFICIAL GUIDE TO ETHICAL HACKING' BASED ON WINDOWS 98. ANKIT FADIA MAY BE REQUESTED TO UPDATE THIS BOOK. AS NOW A DAYS NO ONE IS USING WINDOWS 98, PURCHASING THIS BOOK WAS A WASTAGE OF MONEY.

I can??????t imagine why it was ever published!

Quite frankly, I can??????t imagine why it was ever published! Aside from the fact that it was published this year (2002), and aside from the fact that the author appears to have used a Windows 95 machine to do his tinkering (I won??????t even give the author the respect of using the word ??????hacking??????), this book is riddled with misinformation, inconsistencies, and uncommented source code (which incidentally only compiles, according to the author, on a version of *nix that very few people use).

Any hobbyist with more than one year of experience knows AT LEAST what??????s covered in this book, and they probably don??????t even realize it! This book doesn??????t cover ANY of the new operating systems, doesn??????t take into account ANY basic security precautions that have been in use for a couple years now, and does the reader a disservice by trying to explain (poorly) what ??????hacker?????? and ??????cracker?????? means (clearly the author was trying to impress his friends with his knowledge of jargon). There are MANY more useful tomes on the market; don??????t waste your money on this book! The single most useful piece of information this book contains is a single page where the URLs to SART and (I believe) CERT can be found!
Playing with then DOS and todays Windows is not called as hacking. India??????s so-called, self-claimed #1 Hacker tells you to play with age-old, outdated, tips and tricks of so-called hacking. In his speech, he claims that he hacked some of the most secured websites in India and abroad. Is it true? LOL!!!. He simply cheats the innocent people especially young generation who think hacking is miracle and some sort of ??????Black-Magic??????. If you go through his published books, you will find the hacking techniques explained as windows registry hacks. He talks about sending Trojan-horse (don??????t be confused) through e-mail and acquiring access to user system. My question to this child-brain young self-claimed hacker is: Send a Trojan-horse to *nix based systems like Linux, *BSD, Solaris etc get the work done as you desired. It simply fails to run such childish methods to hack (or crack?).

Great Book! Must Buy.

This book is great for all. It is older as if you are using win98 or linux v.5.xx then you can try all the things from it straight away. If you use the same logic then this book is like a boon for you and you can do all those things now! Its a great book for knowledge and skills. It has all the t... (View complete review)

God awful book.

This book is meant to teach you tricks that can help you impress a few people. That's about it when it comes to its utility as a source of information.
It makes for a good paperweight or a base to elevate your laptop on.
