Anatomy of a Hack

Protect Your Windows Network : From Perimeter to Data (Microsoft Technology) by Jesper M. Johansson, Steve RileyThe folks at InformIT -- actually authors Steve Riley and Jesper Johansson -- have excerpted a chapter of their security book entitled, "Protect Your Windows Network: From Perimeter to Data".

In it, they discuss the anatomy of a "typical" hacking attempt and how how black-hats take advantage of typical configuration errors. Their intent? Education in order to protect networks by omitting the most common mistakes.
