    Mitnick signs new book deal, calls for hacker war-stories

    I am sure not to many people care but his first book was a great one and this one should be even better. If not familuar with his book, he writes about social engineering also known as "people hacking" is the art of persuading someone to give info like passwords.


    Famed hacker and master social engineer Kevin Mitnick has been commissioned to write a new book following the success of his first text The Art of Deception.
    Mitnick has called on retired hackers to come forward with their stories, offering a US$500 prize for the best story that makes it into the book, and a US$200 payment for all stories that make the final draft.
    Book title = The Art of Intrusion

    If you have any stories to share or know anyone that does you can contact Kevin at [email protected] all contacts will stay confidential

    Nice....


    And it's funny how social engineering STILL works so well, and yet most of the security focus is on other things these days....
