Summary

There is a general belief that all hackers are the equivalent to cybercriminals. This belief is partly as a result of the growing rise in the damage that hackers are causing to computer systems and business organizations. However, this audiobook aims to counter that belief. Hacking is a broad term that is used to describe the work of the ethical hacker and the black hat hacker.

This audiobook provides a comprehensive explanation of the work of an ethical hacker. It starts by explaining the term "hacking" and the different types of hacking. Ethical hacking is a type of hacking, and the ethical hacker is someone who is versatile in hacking but uses his or her knowledge for the benefit of the business organization or the individual. Ethical hacking is observed from the three major aspects of hacking:

  • The pre-attack stage
  • Attack stage
  • Penetration testing

The pre-attack stage involves footprinting, enumerations, and scanning, while the attack stage covers password cracking, keyloggers and spyware, threats and vulnerability scanning, and steganography. 

Penetration testing is a vital aspect of ethical hacking. During testing, the ethical hacker simulates the ways intruders gain access to a company's system. The audiobook explains the different ways in which it is used and the countermeasures an ethical hacker can use to foil the work of the hacker.

If you’re interested in being an ethical hacker, or are just curious about the field of hacking, then this audiobook is for you! Buy it now to get started.

Love this audiobook.

This book is really very good. Covers the low-level details so that you can better understand what is going on under the hood. Also includes example exercises so that you can follow along. I was a complete newbie when I bought this book and I have learned so much from it. It is a fantastic well-written guide that is easy to understand and follow.

Very Useful Information

This book is amazing for beginners like me. This book assumes you are new to the world of hacking, so it starts with the very basics of Hacking, the jargon used in the realm of hacking, and also types of hackers.

I am very pleased to listen to that audible

This is a great audiobook that teaches the absolute basics of Linux. There are a few great chapters here that are specifically geared towards hacking, however, if you are looking for an audiobook on hacking you may want to look elsewhere.

Definitely recommend considering this book

I saw this book as instructive regarding the matter of hacking. It addressed my inquiries regarding the matter just as numerous things I had not thought to inquire about. A decent listen. I would prescribe it to a companion.
