Permanent link: [Article]-Review: Gray Hat Python
Review by Ryan Linn, CISSP, MCSE, GPEN
“Gray Hat Python” by Justin Seitz, one of the latest releases from publisher, No Starch Press, focuses on using the Python programming language for reverse engineering. This book is subtitled “Python Programming for Hackers and Reverse Engineers” which is fitting as Justin is a member of Immunity Security, makers of the Canvas penetration testing platform and the Immunity Debugger. The foreword by Dave Aitel, Immunity's CEO, is an excellent introduction to why the content of this book is important. It focuses on the short time span that is required from discovery of a bug to exploit, and the necessity for flexible, fast, and collaborative vulnerability discovery and exploit development. Dave does an excellent job in setting the tone for why the information in the book is relevant and what the drive is for these types of tools in the industry.
