Item description for Hackish C++ Pranks & Tricks by Michael Flenov...
Demonstrating how to write hacking programs, this collection of hacking tricks teaches programmers how to create software pranks and network programs. Nonstandard C++ programming techniques as well as undocumented functions that will make others smile and allow users to demonstrate practical skills in programming and computer support are covered. Special attention is paid to the creation of compact programs that are useful for those interested in optimizing programs. Network programming and how to program for the Internet or an intranet, how to create a fast port scanner, and how to write pranks are discussed. In addition to pranks and network programs, hacking algorithms are described so that programmers can learn what to expect from hackers and how to create a protection system with maximum efficiency.

Another useless book from the ill-famous Russian copy-paster Dec 28, 2005
Another useless book from the ill-famous Russian copy-paster. 1) Author is not an expert in anything he writes about. His level of knowledge is close to one of a sophomore. 2) Book was unprofessionally translated from Russian, it's hard to read. 3) Morale and legal aspects of many pranks and tricks are questionable for an educated and law-obeying reader.
Unique book. Dec 9, 2005
This is the definitive book on the early hackers, true hackers, and should be required reading for all those people. My regards and recomendations.
intriguing challenges Sep 25, 2005
The book offers an alternative viewpoint on programming C++ under Microsoft's operating systems. It deliberately eshews a sober tone, in presenting programming challenges. Like making a window of an arbitrary shape, like the profile of a person. We are so used to rectangular windows that this hack can be hilarious to try and show to others.
Flenov gives a chapter on networking hacks. Imagine writing a server that, with simple extensions, could reboot its machine upon prompt by an external signal that comes in over the net. Or the server might send out passwords, based on that signal. Such a program is malware; a Trojan. Now Flenov does not actually take you that far. But he shows enough that a capable reader could extrapolate the short steps to the Trojan.
very out of date - would be good in 1997 Sep 8, 2005
Full of ancient little code nuggets - like how to make a non-rectangular window in Windows. The author even calls MFC "cutting edge." Give me a break. MFC is barely being maintained any more - it might have been cutting edge 10 years ago. I'd suggest passing on this one - unless you want to feel like you're in a time-machine back to the C++ of the last century.
Good Aug 1, 2005
Sory my bad English becose my ferst languige C++ and Spanish :). Any book have errors but this book wonderful. I like Hackish C++ and recommend to read all C++ programmers.
I do not have any other review on Amizon. I'm lie? No. I'm just do not review every book.
