New book arrives

         · ·

nmap-bookLike any true geek Im always elated when I get a package from Amazon and yesterday was no different. My latest book arrived on the doorstep – Fyodors NMAP Network Scanning.

Some may say that the info for this tool is already available on the net but to be honest my decision to buy this book was, in part, so that Fyodor would get some money back for the excellent tool that he has created and regularly updates.I found out that the book had gone into print when I heard his talk at Defcon and decided there and then that I must have it.

Its both interesting and very encouraging to read that he, as an open source author,   choose to use open-source tools to write to book rather than bowing to the pressure to use proprietary software – kudos for that dude. Now to find some time to read it :)
