Great introductory book for those starting out. Thought I would share my 2 cents on the forums for once.

The Web Application Hacker's Handbook: Discovering and Exploiting Security Flaws by Dafydd Stuttard and Marcus Pinto.

Funny you should mention it, because I was actually just referencing the section on AJAX. I have been recommending this to people for a while now. Absolutely amazing coverage, specific examples with code, and it shows mitigation techniques as well.
Assume that everything I say is or could be a lie.

I bought this book because it seemed pretty thorough.

I'm very new at all of this, and I'm not learning this as part of my schooling or career. I simply like computers, and thought this would be a fun life hobby or lifestyle rather.

I know this is an extremely old post, but could anyone give me any insight on some other books that might supplement this book that will help an "uber noob" such as myself? lol

Thanks guys. :D
