Over the last seven years, Internet Security Systems' (ISS) elite X-Force has discovered more high-risk vulnerabilities than all other research groups and vendors combined, including the vulnerability that led to the recent, widespread Zotob worm. For the first time ever, follow the X-Force team as they analyze potential vulnerabilities and security solutions for cutting edge technologies and emerging attack methodologies.
The book begins with a chapter from ISS Founder Chris Klaus, who is one of the most prominent and well respected security experts in the world. Klaus discusses both emerging technologies and attack methodologies and the resulting capabilities. In each subsequent chapter, the X-Force will detail the most likely attack vectors that malicious hackers are using to exploit these vulnerabilities. Technologies covered include VoIP, smart phones, pocket PCs, SCADA systems and more. And new attack classes include bots and botnets, second-tier attacks, etc. Each chapter concludes with X-Force best practices to securely deploy the covered technology and defend against the new attack classes.
