Hint 1 – Before Hacking: Tor, SSH Tunnels and others

Dear readers, how are you? This is a basic article about making an anonymous connection to the Internet. Why am I talking about a very trivial stuff instead of explaining interesting topics such as Malware Analysis, Windows Debugging, Forensics, Reversing and other cool stuff? Because I have been seen lots of professionals starting their career on the IT security, learning how to hack, but most of them are doing their tests without using an anonymous connection. Furthermore, my next posts will be about introductory procedures (and useful things) to start the IT Security career. By way, it follows the document:

I did not forget my promise to write tutorials about Volatility and WinDbg. :)

Have a nice day.

Reviewing the Oracle Solaris 11 Advanced Administration Cookbook

Dear friends, good morning. One month ago, the Packt Publishing has published my book “Oracle Solaris 11 Advanced Administration Cookbook” and I have been receiving very nice and kind opinions, comments and reviews about it. Furthermore, Oracle team has featured the book on OTN website and several newsletters then I owe my sincere thanks to Oracle (especially to Rick Ramsey from OTN). Because all these efforts, the book has placed among the main books about Oracle Solaris 11 and Unix Operating System and, during some days, it the first one on Amazon ranking.

There are some links where you can read about the book:

Amazon: http://tinyurl.com/l9xkx35

Packt Publishing: https://www.packtpub.com/application-development/oracle-solaris-11-advanced-administration-cookbook

If you had the opportunity to read the entire book or part of it (I know it is very long…), I would like to request you to write a review on Amazon website. Eventually, you would want to contact me personally to comment or talk about some found mistake in the book, so you can do it through the LinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/in/aleborges There you can send an e-mail or add me in your professional network. Certainly, your opinion and point of view about the book is very important to me and that is the reason that I have replied all received messages.

Once more, thanks for your comments and kind messages.

Have a nice day.

Alexandre Borges.
