Quatrième de couverture

"Imagine trying to play defense in football without ever studying offense. You would not know when a run was coming, how to defend pass patterns, nor when to blitz. In computer systems, as in football, a defender must be able to think like an attacker. I say it in my class every semester, you don't want to be the last person to attack your own system--you should be the first.

"The world is quickly going online. While I caution against online voting, it is clear that online gaming is taking the Internet by storm. In our new age where virtual items carry real dollar value, and fortunes are won and lost over items that do not really exist, the new threats to the intrepid gamer are all too real. To protect against these hazards, you must understand them, and this groundbreaking book is the only comprehensive source of information on how to exploit computer games. Every White Hat should read it. It's their only hope of staying only one step behind the bad guys."

--Aviel D. Rubin, Ph.D.
Professor, Computer Science
Technical Director, Information Security Institute
Johns Hopkins University

"Everyone's talking about virtual worlds. But no one's talking about virtual-world security. Greg Hoglund and Gary McGraw are the perfect pair to show just how vulnerable these online games can be."

--Cade Metz
Senior Editor

PC Magazine

"If we're going to improve our security practices, frank discussions like the ones in this book are the only way forward. Or as the authors of this book might say, when you're facing off against Heinous Demons of Insecurity, you need experienced companions, not to mention a Vorpal Sword of Security Knowledge."

--Edward W. Felten, Ph.D.
Professor of Computer Science and Public Affairs
Director, Center for Information Technology Policy
Princeton University

"Historically, games have been used by warfighters to develop new capabilities and to hone existing skills--especially in the Air Force. The authors turn this simple concept on itself, making games themselves the subject and target of the 'hacking game,' and along the way creating a masterly publication that is as meaningful to the gamer as it is to the serious security system professional.

"Massively distributed systems will define the software field of play for at least the next quarter century. Understanding how they work is important, but understanding how they can be manipulated is essential for the security professional. This book provides the cornerstone for that knowledge."

--Daniel McGarvey
Chief, Information Protection Directorate
United States Air Force

"Like a lot of kids, Gary and I came to computing (and later to computer security) through games. At first, we were fascinated with playing games on our Apple ][s, but then became bored with the few games we could afford. We tried copying each other's games, but ran up against copy-protection schemes. So we set out to understand those schemes and how they could be defeated. Pretty quickly, we realized that it was a lot more fun to disassemble and work around the protections in a game than it was to play it.

"With the thriving economies of today's online games, people not only have the classic hacker's motivation to understand and bypass the security of games, but also the criminal motivation of cold, hard cash. That's a combination that's hard to stop. The first step, taken by this book, is revealing the techniques that are being used today."

--Greg Morrisett, Ph.D.
Allen B. Cutting Professor of Computer Science
School of Engineering and Applied Sciences
Harvard University

"If you're playing online games today and you don't understand security, you're at a real disadvantage. If you're designing the massive distributed systems of tomorrow and you don't learn from games, you're just plain sunk."

--Brian Chess, Ph.D.
Founder/Chief Scientist, Fortify Software
Coauthor of
Secure Programming with Static Analysis

"This book offers up a fascinating tour of the battle for software security on a whole new front: attacking an online game. Newcomers will find it incredibly eye opening and even veterans of the field will enjoy some of the same old programming mistakes given brilliant new light in a way that only massively-multiplayer-supermega-blow-em-up games can deliver. w00t!"

3.0 étoiles sur 5 It's a fun read 11 août 2007
Par Chris Marlowe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is the product of the Hoglund's forays into cheating at Warcraft. He did an excellent Black Hat presentation on the same subject in 2006, as well.

Even if you're a security expert, this will teach you things. For example, the requirements of games (responsiveness, good use of network bandwidth, etc.) force them to design their systems with risk, and that risk can be exploited. The only alternative is to run the entire game on their servers and have the client programs be merely display stations, and that just won't work. It makes for a very good read.

Even Hoglund's political rants are fun to read, even as they ring hollow. It's okay for him to hack the system by any means necessary, because he's a hacker and that's what hackers do. But it's not okay for the people who run these games to hack him back because that's an invasion of privacy. How dare they! It strikes me that the real offense is that he was out-hacked, and yeah, it's annoying to lose.

I rate it only three stars because I expect it will not age well. If you're reading this review in 2007, buy the book, it's great. Buy it, you'll love it. If you're reading it in 2008, 2009, or beyond, recognize that the principles he shows are liable to be true for a long time, but the details have a shelf-life.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 MMO Macro and Botting guide 10 septembre 2007
Par Peter Knepley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I thought the book would contain more about FPS cheating and less about WoW. It's 90% about WoW. I don't work on an MMO so I got bored fast.

Not a horrible book, but not great either. I preferred Hoglund's Rootkit book since it had more generic approaches to subverting win32 processes.

If you work on an MMO, you should probably pick this one up.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Overpriced Kindle Edition Hides Text 13 mai 2009
Par Sean Kelly - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Eager to try out the Kindle application for the iPhone--as well as recently kicking a World of Warcraft addiction--I thought this would be a fun read. While the substance of the book itself is worthy of a separate review, I'd like to focus on the Kindle experience of this text.

The text features numerous sidebars: gray-background side topics tangentially related to the main text. However, on the Kindle for iPhone, the majority of these sidebars are truncated.

That is, their ends are chopped off.

For such an expensive ebook, I'd expect to get the complete text. Not so here.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 A script kiddie could have written this book 19 mai 2010
Par Computer Science Student - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is by far the worst book I have ever bought. I just finished a systems programming class which I received an A in and at times this book left me guessing at what was going on. In my honest opinion I could have found a script kiddie on a random set of forums on the internet that would explain the code in the book better then the authors did. Most of the code seems to be stolen from random World of Warcraft hacks that other people have produced. Most of the book leaves open ended paragraphs that say "this is possible, but to understand it you must buy my other book ...". For a book that was supposed to help developers prevent such vulnerabilities it only seems to aid in letting the reader know that certain types of vulnerabilities exist. I couldn't stop laughing when I came to the section titled "Standing Way Outside the Game: Manipulating Network Packets". This section starts out promising with a nice introduction but as soon as you turn the page all that's there is a "screenshot" of code from another World of Warcraft script to decrypt packets. End section. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A fun case study in software security 21 août 2007
Par Pravir Chandra - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
There's lots of other books out there that will walk you through the same old attack techniques with lots of theory, but this book takes it to a new level by selecting online games as the victim (primarily MMORPGs, though other online gaming paradigms are discussed as well).

The book does an excellent job in decomposing the problem of attacking such systems and then walks through all the hardcore details of how to go about executing such an attack. The best thing about this approach is that you learn about all the little real-life headaches that crop up when exploiting real/running systems, and Hoglund and McGraw do an excellent job in pointing them out and explaining when they pop up.

So I'm a bit of a geek, so I knew I was going to enjoy the technical details in the latter half of the book, but I equally enjoyed the big-picture discussion in the first half (particularly the "Chapter 3: Money" and "Chapter 4: Enter the lawyers"). When doing threat modeling, I'm a big fan of understanding the motives and constraints of attackers, so these two chapters provided a good deal of background on that (after all, money is the most common motivator and it's what drives the lawyers to build some pretty insane EULA agreements).

Overall, if you're a technical guy with an interest in learning real reversing and low-level hacking in a 'hands-on' way, you'll find this book excellent. If you're a little greener or maybe haven't wandered too far from hacking web apps, then you'll also want to grab some others for background (from the Software Security series, I'd suggest Building Secure Software and Exploiting Software).
