Re: Any comments or Recommendation on These Books ?

the first book i have read the first edition three years ago, it is practical, and fluff free, i have already subscribed to the 2nd edition through SafariOnline, so far it looks the same as the original edition with more exercises, and updated material. the Author uses hex numbers for numbering chapters, and sections  8)

I have the shellcoder's handbook, however i have not read it yet, skimmed through it when i wanted to learn more about bufferoverflows, it examins it deep both in windows, and Linux. it came highly reccomened by members in the security team where i work.

Re: Any comments or Recommendation on These Books ?

I know you have already bought the books, but I figured I'd share anyway.  I have looked over Hacking: The art of Exploitation and it looked good.  I've had some other people recommend it to me as well.  I just got the Shell Coders Handbook and have made it through the first 2 chapters.  It is incredibly in depth, with great examples that you can follow along with.  It is however, one of those "makes your brain hurt" books if you haven't done assembly and OS stuff in a while.  I'm really glad that I have it.. and I'm also really glad that I don't have time to sit down and read it for long periods of time, otherwise I might pull something :)  Other stuff that has helped me a lot lately that are more free resources, are http://www.darkreading.com and looking at some of the code to metasploit.  I "borrowed" the shell code from metasploit for use in another languages exploit and their method of putting forth the exploit itself and the stuff you're going to be injecting is really informative.  Also sans has some great webcasts that are archived, for instance after https://www.sans.org/webcasts/show.php?webcastid=90649 you'll be all "I know kung-fu" and someone else will be all "show me".  Anyway, hope this helps someone :)
