This expanded, revised and updated edition of The Hacker's Handbook re-examines the whole phenomenon of hacking, from its beginnings in the computer networks of the early 80s, through some of the legendary hackers and their exploits, to the basic tools that hackers use in the 2010s - and how to guard against them, or apply them yourself to start learning the art of information retrieval. All areas of hacking are clearly discussed, along with their implications, what is at stake, ways to protect against potential damage, and how to try them out for yourself. There is also a full range of hints and tips for getting the most out of the basic Internet tools we all use, such as email, the World Wide Web, and more.
