Your most inspiring hacking books

Hey good peeps,

I would like to start a thread on your favorite hacking books. Ones you read recently and taught you one or two new tricks, or ones that you read a decade ago and literally changed your way of thinking about hacking!!
I realize there are a lot of “how to hack facebook” shenanigans going on here, so hopefully such a thread will help set people on the right path to hacking…
Allow me to start first :

Books of old that shaped my hacking career (a bit outdated now but still great):

  • The Art of Intrusion - The Real Stories Behind the Exploits of Hackers, Intruders and Deceivers , Kevin Mitnick
  • Counter Hack Reloaded - A Step-by-Step Guide to Computer Attacks and Effective Defenses, Ed Skoudis

Books that rocked my life recently:

Your turn :slight_smile:



Great idea you have there. We already had the same one and created the wiki section that is free to edit for anyone, so you can just add your recommendations to the initial post there !
