III. Platform Attacks

Part III. Platform Attacks

Part III opens with a review of Unix security fundamentals (Chapter 11) before moving into Unix attacks (Chapter 12). In contrast, the two Windows security chapters cover client (Chapter 13) and server (Chapter 14) attacks, since exploits on these two platforms are idiosyncratic. For example, on Windows XP, we show how to exploit weaknesses in Remote Assistance, while on Windows Server, we show theoretical ways to crack Kerberos authentication. Chapter 15 covers SOAP XML web services security, and Chapter 16 examines SQL injection attacks. Finally, we cover wireless security (Chapter 17), including wireless LANs and embedded, mobile malware such as airborne viruses.
