Inhe was arrested for illegal computer snooping, convicted and held without bail for two years before being released in He clearly inspires unusual fear in the authorities and unusual dedication in the legions of computer security dabblers, legal and otherwise.
Renowned for his use of “social engineering,” the art of tricking people into revealing secure information such as passwords, Mitnick The Art of Deception introduces readers to a fascinating array of pseudonymous hackers. One group of friends bilks Las Vegas casinos out of more than a million dollars by mastering the patterns inherent in slot machines; another fellow, less fortunate, gets mixed up with a presumed al-Qaeda—style terrorist; and a prison intrysion leverages his computer skills to communicate with the outside world, unbeknownst to his keepers.
Mitnick’s handling of kwvin engrossing tales is exemplary, for which credit presumably goes to his coauthor, writing pro Simon. Given the complexity some would say obscurity of the material, the authors avoid the pitfall of drowning readers in minutiae.
Uniformly readable, the stories—some are quite exciting—will impart familiar lessons to security pros while introducing lay readers to an enthralling field of inquiry.

It’s a collection of true hacker tales covering what they did, how they did it, and, at the end of each chapter, Kevin Mitnick gives his personal advice on how to mount counter measures to secure your network.
I thought the information was interesting and useful, the stories were well chosen, and the book was superbly enjoyable. Each chapter is a different case study. And as I read each case, I underlined the technical details used in the story. It wasn’t just all about “social engineering manipulating people into helping you gain access to a network.
The Art of Intrusion: The Real Stories Behind the Exploits of Hackers, Intruders and Deceivers
There is also a whole bunch of inteusion junk about telephone networks: I mention these things because although you do not necessarily have to be a techno-geek to understand this book, you would be miles ahead of you at least knew a little about communication networks. Put it this way, if you’re totally clueless, you probably won’t like this book. On the other hand, if you’re a novice like me, you’ll probably love it. As a footnote, my favorite was the chapter about how a small group of people actually hacked into the Las Vegas slot machines.
And they made money! After I read that story I was hooked and couldn’t put the book down. Without being overly technical, though there is a good deal of jargon, Mitnick relays the stories behind the headlines that some of you might remember.
The prose was at times a little rough around the edges, but not too distracting from the overall message of the book.
Kevin Mitnick – The Art of – Inspirit
The now-benevolent Mitnick ends each chapter with his analysis of the hacks, how they could have been prevented a. The book is overall a quick and easy read, and the stories are written with the feel of a crime novel- full of gripping, can’t-wait-to-see-what-happens intrigue.
The stories cover casinos, prisons, aircraft companies, newspaper companies, banks, medical companies, and so on- indeed, no-one is safe from hacking, no matter how thick and strong of an electronic barrier you may build. Some hacks may take months or years to pull off, but others can happen by a variety of means in as little as a few days.
I can’t help but be impressed at the capabilities of motivated people kevi a little bit of technical know-how, whether they are acting maliciously or not.
I found the book to be both entertaining and technically helpful, and I would recommend it to anyone who uses a computer. This book is not a how-to guide for hacking, so if that is what you are after, I suggest looking elsewhere. The stories presented what happened in the hacks, but not how to do it.
The Art of Intrusion starts off with a great story of some computer geeks who come up with a new way to scam the Las Vegas casinos by hacking slot machines. I can’t resist a good con book or movie.
Instead, The Art of Intrusion has one good con, a few stories of hacking vending machines and websites, and a lot of “advice” for people tasked with computer security. As in The Art of Deception, Kevin Mitnick’s previous book with William Simon, the advice consists mostly of common sense tips such as don’t give your password to the guy on the phone who says he’s the repairman. This may be a good book for people who are responsible for computer security where they work.
There is plenty of technical advice about back door attacks and firewalls, and scads of code for those who those who want the details. But Mitnick emphasizes social engineering as a greater risk to your computer security and I believe him. It’s a lot easier to just ask someone for the password or for access to the system than it is to invade from the outside. And most people don’t expect a hacker to be the friendly voice on the phone who says he’s Don from the home office and chats you up before casually asking for the entry code.
