"I'd love to use this book in my system administrator training courses it's a beautiful example of how to do problem analysis and counter-intelligence. I guess having the book describe these techniques in detail for the hostiles may be the price I have to pay to get the awareness and (hopefully) the motivation for the admin community to close the holes and do responsible system management."
