Reviews - What do customers think about The Unofficial Guide to Ethical Hacking (Miscellaneous)?
Not as 1337 as it seems Aug 29, 2006
I bought this book thinking that I might learn something new about how to protect my computer. After reading the first little bit I realized I already knew all of it because it was all already on the internet. Pretty much this guy got all of the (basic) tutorials for hacking on the internet and compiled them into a book. Also, almost nothing in this book will work if you have minor network security. All the people that gave this a 5 star rating are not very smart. They are impressed because some tough 1337 hacker told them how to crack into systems wreck havoc. Yeah, right. Save the money and read tutorials on the internet. Do not buy.
oh no ankit fadia again.... Apr 20, 2006
wat is wrong wid all these people who are givin 5 star reviews to books written by l33t ankit fatia.cant u people see this is thrash.which respectable hacker would include chapters like changing ur windows 95 logon screen in their book,none besides the great ankit fadia,other cheap material include outdated hacks n winblows 98 tricks.dis lama material was at times so boring dat even even my 11 yr ol bro who has just started out learning bout hacking copuldnt stop laughing and complaining how boring dis read was.is he out of his mind wat was he thinking when he wrote this crap ,did he think its gonna help secure networks and ah windows 95 for ur hacks .why not tell people to get a linux distro fagg maybe ubuntu,mandrake,suse these r secure fatia and for god sake grow up from windows 95.i guess fadia doesnt really care bout all this , hes out there making money just becoz we have stupid kids buying these books n think dey gonna hack the planet.from books to certifications to video seminars ,fadia is taking everybody for a ride.wonders wats planned next maybe a music video or dvd by mr fadiap3ace to the real
Garbage Mar 3, 2006
The book has nothing but garbage. Most of the vulnerabilities hes talking about have been fixed ages back. And all this stuff is free on the net. Especially the windows registry hacking is horrible. Hes just stolen the ones that fancied him and made it into a chapter. You'll get thousands of such tricks on the net. I wonder how the publisher had the nerve to publish this stolen junk and charge so much for it.
What more, this guy has now published more such books and has started a certification "Ankit Fadia certified ethical hacker" ! Goddamn it.
um...no... Jun 15, 2005
ya...like everyone else...i think that this book is horrible...i mean...it really disgusts me...and...im only 13 and i still find this book to be incredibly immature, unhelpful, and unadvanced...if you are THAT desperate...just do a google search...the entire book is plagiarized...DONT BUY IT...
Official guide to waste your money! Apr 26, 2004
This book is a waste of your hard earned money, because if you need scripts that don't work and doesn't help you at all in hacking or protecting yourself from a cracker, you can just get millions of those from the Internet for free. You don't have to pay a 14 year old kid to compile it and give it to you for US$49!
I bought this book because it had a very interesting title. I regret my decision of buying this book as there is nothing in it that can be used and it's taking up the space in my bookshelf. Maybe, I will throw this book or give it to someone (some people those who never say no to free things).
You don't have to pay US$ 49 for a book that has nothing but freely available scripts copied and pasted from the Internet.
As rightly mentioned in one of the reviews here, it's a waste of money, ink, paper, and time. You will end up throwing this book in a bin with learning only one thing how to be a bit smarter before buying a book that has an interesting title.
