"A well-put-together work: I was able to put some of the tasks to work for me right away. An excellent resource: Technical enough to be useful, but not overly technical." -- Chris Griffin, Trainer, ISECOM USA "As someone who has to deal with .NET security every day, I always look for new ideas and tools to make .NET applications more secure. This book provides both. It's especially valuable when you have to protect apps without having access to their original source code." -- Kyle C. Quest, GREM, GWAPT, GCIH, GCFA, GCIA, GCWN, GCUX, GCFW, GSNA, CISSP, CIPP, Director of Security Engineering, MetraTech "Overall the book is very well structured and presented in a way that maintains the reader's interest as the author delves ever deeper into why hackers use MCRs to target an organisation's applications. Continuity of the content is maintained by helpful summaries at the end of each chapter. Mr Metula is a consummate and talented security practitioner who knows his subject thoroughly. I consider this book to be excellent value for money and would recommend it to any security professional. In today's austere economic climate, modern IT solutions are being sought that are proven value for money. The use of virtual servers is rapidly increasing as they provide better utilisation and increased productivity of existing resources. This book highlights the risks of adopting such technology and provides valuable advice on countermeasures to mitigate those risks."--InfoSecReviews.com "In today's austere economic climate, modern IT solutions are being sought?that are proven value for money.

Managed Code Rootkits is the first book to cover application-level rootkits and other types of malware inside the application VM, which runs a platform-independent programming environment for processes. The book, divided into four parts, points out high-level attacks, which are developed in intermediate language. The initial part of the book offers an overview of managed code rootkits. It explores environment models of managed code and the relationship of managed code to rootkits by studying how they use application VMs. It also discusses attackers of managed code rootkits and various attack scenarios. The second part of the book covers the development of managed code rootkits, starting with the tools used in producing managed code rootkits through their deployment. The next part focuses on countermeasures that can possibly be used against managed code rootkits, including technical solutions, prevention, detection, and response tactics. The book concludes by presenting techniques that are somehow similar to managed code rootkits, which can be used in solving problems. * Named a 2011 Best Hacking and Pen Testing Book by InfoSec Reviews* Introduces the reader briefly to managed code environments and rootkits in general* Completely details a new type of rootkit hiding in the application level and demonstrates how a hacker can change language runtime implementation* Focuses on managed code including Java, .NET, Android Dalvik and reviews malware development scanarios

Buchbeschreibung Oxford Elsevier LTD Nov 2010, 2010. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. 234x190x25 mm. Neuware - Imagine being able to change the language that a computer is running and taking over control. That is exactly what managed code rootkits can do when they are placed within a computer. This new type of rootkit is hiding in a place that had previously been safe from this type of attack, the application level. Code reviews do not currently look for back doors in the virtual machine (VM) where this new rootkit would be injected. An invasion of this magnitude allows an attacker to steal information on the infected computer, fixate encryption keys, and disable security checks. Author Erez Metula shows the reader how these rootkits are developed and inserted and how this attack can change the managed code that it is running whether that be JAVA, .NET, or any other managed code. Management development scenarios, tools like ReFrameworker, and countermeasures are covered to make this book a one-stop shop for this new attack vector. 336 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9781597495745
