The complete guide to todaya€™s hard-to-defend chained attacks: performing them and preventing them Nowadays, ita€™s rare for malicious hackers to rely on just one exploit or tool; instead, they use a€œchaineda€ exploits that integrate multiple forms of attack to achieve their goals. Chained exploits are far more complex and far more difficult to defend. Few security or hacking books cover them well and most dona€™t cover them at all. Now therea€™s a book that brings together start-to-finish information about todaya€™s most widespread chained exploitsa€”both how to perform them and how to prevent them. Chained Exploits demonstrates this advanced hacking attack technique through detailed examples that reflect real-world attack strategies, use todaya€™s most common attack tools, and focus on actual high-value targets, including credit card and healthcare data. Relentlessly thorough and realistic, this book covers the full spectrum of attack avenues, from wireless networks to physical access and social engineering. Writing for security, network, and other IT professionals, the authors take you through each attack, one step at a time, and then introduce todaya€™s most effective countermeasuresa€“ both technical and human.
