THE BEST OF HAKIN9 – 48 ARTICLES 2012 – 2014


Dear Readers,

We are glad to present our first THE BEST OF HAKIN9 in 2014. This time we wanted to sum up last 3 years of our work and thus, we prepared a special collection of 48 top Hakin9 articles. Inside you will find more than 400 pages of “how-to” and step-by-step” tutorials that will surely contribute to your development as a professional pentester, exploiter or ethical hacker. We hope that this pack will shed some light on the direction our publication took after it underwent major changes such as switching to electronical version (.pdf and .epub formats) or focusing mostly on exploiting and hacking techniques and tools. This compendium is also a fine introduction to even greater changes in our magazine as it shows You, our Reader, the topics that are most burning and eagerly read by Hakin9’s audience. We decided to stress the need to meet your high expectations and, in the forthcoming publications, supply You with recurring issues of the topics as Exploiting Software, Reverse Engineering, Pentesting, Offensive Programming, Network Cracking. We hope You find these changes proper and satisfactory. We strongly encourage all of You to send us many messages about your needs and expectations as this publication is devoted to You and would not exist without its Readers. Please remember that we are always open to Your ideas and it is You, who decide on the following topic of Hakin9. Feel free to share your views and comment on our recent and future work by sending us a message to [email protected] with COMMENTS in the subject. We respond to all your inquiries.Hakin9_EN_TBO_01_2014-1
