  • "Seven Deadliest Microsoft Attacks brings to light easily exploitable yet commonly overlooked vulnerabilities of Microsoft systems. The real-world examples used help reinforce the magnitude of these attacks, all while depicting the simplicity of the attack itself. The authors end on a good note with steps to avoid becoming a victim and insight on industry trends."--Aaron Beauregard, IT Systems and Security Manager, Mueller Services, Inc.

    "The text is peppered with warnings, notes, recommendations and so-called 'Epic Fail' text boxes that illustrate some of the typical mistakes made when working with that particular software...The bok and the chapters are short, but long enough to give a good overview of today's most common attacks targeting some of the most popular Microsoft products."--Zeljka Zorz, Help Net Security
