As more and more vulnerabilities are found in the Mac OS X (Leopard) operating system, security researchers are realizing the importance of developing proof-of-concept exploits for those vulnerabilities. This unique tome is the first book to uncover the flaws in the Mac OS X operating system - and how to deal with them. Written by two white hat hackers, this book is aimed at making vital information known so that you can find ways to secure your Mac OS X systems, and examines the sorts of attacks that are prevented by Leopard's security defenses, what attacks aren't, and how to best handle those weaknesses.


The honeymoon is over.
Prepare yourself to thwart Mac attacks.
Where security is concerned, Macs have long led a charmed existence. No more. If you manage security for a network that includes OS X machines, this update on the strengths and weaknesses of Mac OS X is required reading.
Beginning with the core differences between Mac OS X and Windows or Linux, this book follows the steps an attacker would take. You will learn the tools needed to find vulnerabilities, the techniques used to exploit them, and the means by which attackers maintain control once they gain access. When you know how they get in, you'll know how to keep them out.
* See what makes Mac OS(r) X unique, what security improvements were added with Leopard(r), and where vulnerabilities lie
* Explore uncommon protocols-Bonjour(r), the QuickTime(r) file format, and RTSP
* Look for bugs in Apple's source code or use a black box technique such as fuzzing
* Examine stack overflow and heap overflow attacks directed at PowerPC and x86 architectures, as well as shellcodes and payloads
* Learn to inject code into running processes and how attackers use this technique
* Understand Mac OS X-specific rootkit techniques

Good book but needs an update 30. Oktober 2010
Von Zachary Cutlip - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The Mac Hacker's Handbook covers a lot of useful technical topics surrounding vulnerability analysis and exploit development for Mac OS X. That said, it doesn't so much teach you directly, as guide your learning. For example, it introduces the use of DTrace on OS X for dynamic analysis. It makes a very good case for DTrace's usefulness in reverse engineering, and for you to go out on your own and learn about it. Its DTrace examples aren't really freestanding, and require some background that you must get yourself. If the book were to give you the necessary background on every topic it introduces, it would be an enormous tome, and the authors probably would still be writing it.

Think of the book as explaining to you what all tools you need in your Mac hacking toolbox and why you need them, and how to put them together once you have them. It's up to you do go develop those skills on your own.

The biggest shortcoming of the book, however, is it is out of date. The concepts are sound and still very applicable, but the examples are written for OS X 10.5. Most do not work on Snow Leopard. Many you can get to work if you go out and beat the pavement trying to figure them out. I recommend this, but be aware, your progress through the book will be slow going as you get bogged down trying to figure out how to adapt each example so that it works.

This book succeeds if taken for what it is: a guide for your learning. You'll need to invest a fair amount of sweat equity to get the most out of it, though.

The best Mac security reference 12. Mai 2009
Von Ryan L. Russell - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
The Mac Hacker's Handbook is the best reference for Mac-specific attack information that I have found. At 368 pages, it may appear small compared to the typical 750+ page security tome. That's because the authors have done a near-perfect job of sticking to the topic at hand, the Mac. The authors do not succumb to the usual temptation to try and teach assembly language or reverse engineering. Rather, they do an excellent job touching on those topics in an OS X context, and assume the reader has a little background in that area already, or can otherwise keep up. I have done some limited research into the areas of Mac malware and process injection in the past. This book has done a fantastic job of filling in many holes in my knowledge that I hadn't been able to take care of before. Plus, it introduced me to a number of Mac-specific security features I wasn't aware of before. Highly recommended for anyone interested in Mac security.

Breaks new ground into the Mac 7. Mai 2009
Von mjw - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
As a security professional Mac's are an interesting subject. They combine many of the best features from other operating systems into a wonderful package. I purchased a Macbook during a pen test about 8 months ago and have been in love with it since then. Before this book looking at security on Apple products was a difficult dive into the unknown. Charlie and Dino have done a lot of hard work and figured out the internals of OS X as related to security. They clearly present what's going inside the OS and how they learned the internals. This enables other security professionals to follow their method to both gain better understanding and to know what's wrong when something inevitably changes.

I'd definitely recommend this book for experienced security professionals looking to do exploit development on the Mac.

Technical and detailed 27. Januar 2012
Von Prime - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book provides insight into many applications and internals of Apple's Mac operating system from a security perspective, which was exactly what I was looking for. A great read at home or on the plane, it keeps you interested with detailed accounts of bugs found on this platform. It goes into detail on how the vulnerabilities occur and even how to exploit them. The authors are world class guys. Highly recommended.

Great Book 22. Februar 2011
Von J. Carlson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I really enjoyed this book, it teaches a number of techniques and does a great explaining the motivation behind an attack. I really enjoyed the chapters on dtrace and rootkits, as dtrace allowed me a quick way to peer inside what sys calls are made and the rootkits were discussed very well. While yes, a number of examples are out of date due to Snow Leopard, you can contact the authors, who are very friendly and happy to share some of their public slides, as well as trying to use the ideas to foster your own techniques.

Overall, a great book for anyone interested in hacking, Mac OS X, or both. Of course, if you're into iPhone hacking, this is a good place to start as well, and the authors know a thing or two there as well...
