Hacking: The Art of Exploitation

Just started this one by Jon Erickson, and it's already proven to be a nice refresher in C and Assembly. One who knows nothing about programming could eventually understand it, but (so far) it's fast-paced enough that intermediates quickly get something out of it. Other thoughts on this book?

I actually just got this book off of Amazon.com. It's a good book, but it's a little over my head at the moment. I have to learn more C and Assembly, as you mentioned. On the other hand, though, its confusing nature (to an amateur) only motivates you to learn the basic concepts so that you can understand the book, which is what makes you a candidate for being a hacker. I think it's a good book too. Even though I can't really pick up what he's saying right away, I've learned a few things already (mostly about GDB).

This should be a direct link to it on Amazon. If the link changes, you can always just search http://www.amazon.com for "Hacking The Art of Exploitation"
Assume that everything I say is or could be a lie.

I saw this the other day in chaptors. I didn't read anymore then I could for the little bit I was in chaptors but again, it's not good for newbs. I am completely fucktarded when it comes to assembly and C so for me it was entirely useless.

This is one of my favorite books, I got that book before I had taken any classes in assembly or C, but it definitely got me motivated for them. Covers a great deal of information to get one up to par, but even once the concepts of that book are mastered, you've only scratched the tip of the iceberg. He covers the method to bypass non executable stack by return to libc, but not randomized virtual address spacing. They do have articles at milw0rm for that though :D. Not only is it jam packed with information, contains very good hacker philosophy of discovery and innovation. I would say a must to read for any beginner/novice hacker. also i say the network section when talking about sniffing data, he uses ancient software, still contains good background knowledge but instead of using his software use ettercap.

I actually find this book pretty decent even at a beginner level. Minimally and I only recommend this because it will give you an understanding of the basics, is to grab the recent Visual Basic (free) and run a few tutorials. Since this is related to all things hacking, I would suggest you just bite the bullet and learn programming languages from there very basic. You'll thank yourself later and won't get in the habit of relying on IDE to format code you don't understand.
