Great book... Learn C or you will be LOST! Sep 7, 2007
I cracked the book to start reading and you are immediately shoved into programming an xping program. I had to stop and learn the parts of C that I am not as familier with. If you are looking for a great book to get you started on writing sec tools, then this is it!
