Phishing

Phishing - Cutting the Identity Theft Line

The first 3rd of this book was a good coverage of Phishing with interesting information on techniques, prevalence, up trend, etc.  After that the book feels like the authors ran out of material and began to scurry between subjects like network address translation, intrusion detection systems, and enterprise incident response teams. Basic 101 security stuff available in far better detail else ware.

Ultimately the authors’ suggestions revolve around hating Microsoft, buying a new Macintosh, etc. and not using the web at all.

Again, the first 3rd of this book was quite good but the rest seemed to read like page filler. Still, it seems to be the first and only book dedicated to Phishing.

I’m looking forward “Phishing Exposed” pending its release by Syngress.
