Breaking News:Computer security consultant writes book on computer security suggesting that you buy his companies products. I thought the book would be more exciting. Along the lines of what the tittle implies. You know describing exploits and what have you. However it is extremely boring. The main premise of the book is to push the fact that OMG computer breakins are a growing problem...Buy more equipment and professionals. They fail to take into account the background noise of the internet(automated scripts, port scans etc..) and the explosive growth of completely unprotected machines (Cough cough windows). And yes I am qualified to comment on this as the last five years I have worked for a major security network appliance company.
