Two publishers were kind enough to send new books last week. I plan to read and review both early next year. The first is McGraw-Hill/Osborne's Hacking Exposed: VoIP by David Endler and Mark Collier. The best Hacking Exposed books introduce a new technology, then demonstrate ways to break it that a reader can duplicate. I like seeing new HE books on specific issues, rather than having everything rolled into a single book. The second is Syngress' Wireshark & Ethereal Network Protocol Analyzer Toolkit by Angela Orebaugh and friends. This looks like an updated edition of 2004's Ethereal Packet Sniffing, which I really liked. Jose Nazario's review gave it four stars, partly due to editing problems. I plan to read this book and let you know what I think.
