Title: Google Hacking for Penetration Testers
Publisher: Syngress
Authors: Johnny Long, Alrik van Eijkelenborg
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Great for stimulating ideas .........


I am involved in penetration testing on an occasional basis (my principal role is audit management, my principal interest is systems auditing), per other reviews this is an excellent resource for anyone planning or executing tests.

I have used google with simplistic searches and obtained good results (e.g. pictures of site being tested, too much detail in job postings ...). This book is an excelent source of ideas and techniques, for both social engineering, and more technical tests.

It has also made me consider what the google desktop search tool could be used for, when run on key servers in internal nets.

Authors writing style is very easy to read yet packed with valuable information.

This book is likely to be of significant value to forensic investigators and for those with an interest in competitive intelligence.

Fast answers to 318 problems


This is exactly the book I've been looking for. It has practical how-to code that covers every aspect of the (impossibly huge) .NET framework. Recipes are lean, well explained, and very practical. This is one book I know I'll return to again and again. And when I'm done with the 318 recipes in here, I hope to get more online (the author has posted new recipes at his website http://www.prosetech.com/vbcookbook -- hopefully more will come in the future). Overall, I can't say enough about this book. Highly recommended!

Gotta have it.


In today's environment of spam, virus, and bad things in general, knowing how to protect yourself is a very valuable commodity. Paul has managed to condense everything you need down to a nutshell, okay, maybe more like an acorn tree. But it's all in there. Chapter 20 should be a must-read for anyone in messaging. It goes over some of the legal aspects of you and your messaging system. Most administrators don't realize the possible litigation that they can get themselves into. And sure, your company will protect you. When it comes to a 10 million dollar lawsuit or an employee, who's going to get the shaft?!Ever worry about what permissions have been set on something? Take a look at Appendix B for an in-depth guide.
