While you’re reading this, a hacker could be prying and spying his way into your company’s IT systems, sabotaging your operations, stealing confidential information, shutting down your Web site, or wreaking havoc in other diabolical ways. Hackers For Dummies helps you hack into a hacker’s mindset and take security precautions to help you avoid a hack attack. It outlines computer hacker tricks and techniques you can use to assess the security of your own information systems, find security vulnerabilities, and fix them before malicious and criminal hackers can exploit them. It covers:

* Hacking methodology and researching public information to see what a hacker can quickly learn about your operations
* Social engineering (how hackers manipulate employees to gain information and access), physical security, and password vulnerabilities
* Network infrastructure, including port scanners, SNMP scanning, banner grabbing, scanning, and wireless LAN vulnerabilities
* Operating systems, including Windows, Linux, and Novell NetWare
* Application hacking, including malware (Trojan horses, viruses, worms, rootkits, logic bombs, and more), e-mail and instant messaging, and Web applications
* Tests, tools (commercial, shareware, and freeware), and techniques that offer the most bang for your ethical hacking buck
