Linux in easy steps, 6th Edition: Mike McGrath
This audiobook is the third in a series on how to use Linux for programming. It guides you through the steps of getting started with using the Python programming language to get started with Linux. Python is the ideal Linux programming language, at least for beginners, partially because it so closely resembles human language. It is one of the most accessible and easy to learn. And like Linux, it is open source! Anyone can view the source code and submit changes. This audiobook begins by explaining in detail what Python is and why it is best suited for Linux programming, even though the Linux kernel is written in a different programming language (C). It gives you some tips and tricks for how to use Python with Linux without any confusion between the two languages. It then explains some of the most basic features of Python, such as the syntax it uses, what loops are, Boolean expressions, and writing out simple codes. From there, it gives you some tips and tricks on how to use Python to program with Linux, such as using it in a command line terminal, in an integrated development environment (IDLE), to build and edit applications, and to write patches. This audiobook is a great resource for Python and Linux beginners, and those who have some working knowledge but want a firmer foundation to build off of. By the time you finish this audiobook, you will have a working knowledge of how to use Python. You will be able to build on that knowledge as you continue to develop your skills as a programmer. 1.

This audiobook contains proven steps and strategies on how to become a proficient Linux programmer. Through the course of this audiobook, you’re going to learn strategies to think like a programmer. You’ll learn how to program in Python and Java, as well as how to write scripts for the Linux command line. By the end, you’re going to have a masterful grip on how to write efficient and strong programs. I’ve been programming for a while, and this audiobook is based on the method that I’ve found to be most effective in teaching people how to program; a programmer isn’t worth anything if he or she doesn’t understand the underlying logic. So in this audiobook, we cover the underlying logic and then examine how it applies to three different important Linux programming platforms. 1. Language: English. Narrator: William Bahl.

As more and more vulnerabilities are found in the Mac OS X (Leopard) operating system, security researchers are realizing the importance of developing proof-of-concept exploits for those vulnerabilities. This unique tome is the first book to uncover the flaws in the Mac OS X operating system--and how to deal with them. Written by two white hat hackers, this book is aimed at making vital information known so that you can find ways to secure your Mac OS X systems, and examines the sorts of attacks that are prevented by Leopard's security defenses, what attacks aren't; and how to best handle those weaknesses. The honeymoon is over. Prepare yourself to thwart Mac attacks. Where security is concerned, Macs have long led a charmed existence. No more. If you manage security for a network that includes OS X machines, this update on the strengths and weaknesses of Mac OS X is required reading. Beginning with the core differences between Mac OS X and Windows or Linux, this book follows the steps an attacker would take. You will learn the tools needed to find vulnerabilities, the techniques used to exploit them, and the means by which attackers maintain control once they gain access. When you know how they get in, you´ll know how to keep them out. * See what makes Mac OS(r) X unique, what security improvements were added with Leopard(r), and where vulnerabilities lie * Explore uncommon protocols-Bonjour(r), the QuickTime(r) file format, and RTSP * Look for bugs in Apple´s source code or use a black box technique such as fuzzing * Examine stack overflow and heap overflow attacks directed at PowerPC and x86 architectures, as well as shellcodes and payloads * Learn to inject code into running processes and how attackers use this technique * Understand Mac OS X-specific rootkit techniques
Requiring no prior hacking experience, Ethical Hacking and Penetration Testing Guide supplies a complete introduction to the steps required to complete a penetration test, or ethical hack, from beginning to end. You will learn how to properly utilize and interpret the results of modern-day hacking tools, which are required to complete a penetration test. The book covers a wide range of tools, including Backtrack Linux, Google reconnaissance, MetaGooFil, dig, Nmap, Nessus, Metasploit, Fast Track Autopwn, Netcat, and Hacker Defender rootkit. Supplying a simple and clean explanation of how to effectively utilize these tools, it details a four-step methodology for conducting an effective penetration test or hack.Providing an accessible introduction to penetration testing and hacking, the book supplies you with a fundamental understanding of offensive security. After completing the book you will be prepared to take on in-depth and advanced topics in hacking and penetration testing. The book walks you through each of the steps and tools in a structured, orderly manner allowing you to understand how the output from each tool can be fully utilized in the subsequent phases of the penetration test. This process will allow you to clearly see how the various tools and phases relate to each other.
