"The complete guide to today's hard-to-defend chained attacks: performing them and preventing them. Nowadays, it's rare for malicious hackers to rely on just one exploit or tool; instead, they use "chained" 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 don't cover them at all. Now there's a book that brings together start-to-finish information about today's most widespread chained exploits--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 today'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."--Back cover.
