Seven Deadliest Microsoft Attacks explores some of the deadliest attacks made against Microsoft software and networks and how these attacks can impact the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the most closely guarded company secrets.
The book consists of seven chapters that cover the following topics: (i) attacks against Windows passwords; (ii) escalation attacks; (iii) stored procedure attacks; (iv) mail service attacks; (v) client-side ActiveX and macro attacks; (vi) Web service attacks; and (vii) multi-tier attacks. Each chapter provides an overview of a single Microsoft software product, how it is used, and some of the core functionality behind the software. Additionally, each chapter explores the anatomy of attacks against the software; the dangers of an attack; and possible defenses to help prevent the attacks described in the scenarios.
This book will be a valuable resource for those responsible for oversight of network security for either small or large organizations. It will also benefit those interested in learning the details behind attacks against Microsoft infrastructure, products, and services; and how to defend against them. Network administrators and integrators will find value in learning how attacks can be executed, and transfer knowledge gained from this book into improving existing deployment and integration practices.
