Mac OS X For Dummies

So you’re finally making the leap from Mac OS 9 to Mac OS X. Good for you! Or maybe you’ve just switched from Windows and bought a brand-spanking-new iMac. Bravo! Or perhaps you’ve never used a computer before and have bought a new Mac because you heard how easy they are to use. Bonus points!

Whatever your reason for diving into the Aqua-filled world of Mac OS X, rest assured that you made the right choice. Thing is, Apple has made Mac OS X quite different from earlier Mac operating systems, and it’s way different than Windows, so you may need a little help finding your way through that big, complicated operating system – not to mention all that great software that comes bundled with it.

That’s why veteran Mac-scribe Bob LeVitus has written a not-so-big, not-so-complicated Dummies book about Mac OS X. Recently revised for version 10.2 (a.k.a. Jaguar), Mac OS X For Dummies, 2nd Edition, shows you what Mac OS X is all about, without boring you silly, confusing you to the point of frustration, or poking you with sharp objects. You’ll discover the information and advice you need in a language that you can understand (unlike those other computer books that shall remain nameless).

  Inside Mac OS X For Dummies, 2nd Edition, you’ll find the following topics and more:

  • Setting up and turning on your new Mac
  • Getting around on the Desktop and in the Dock
  • Finding stuff with the Finder
  • Working with Mac OS X applications and files
  • Surfing the Internet – Mac OS X style
  • Sharing and printing files and documents
  • Making your Mac your own: Setting System Preferences
  • Troubleshooting – Yes, even Mac OS X crashes every once in a while
  • Top Ten lists on how to speed up your Mac experience, accessories you should consider, Web sites all Mac freaks should know about, and valuable third-party software

No matter what you use your Mac for – whether it’s to surf the Internet, watch DVDs, listen to online music, or any number of other reasons – Mac OS X For Dummies, 2nd Edition, will get you well on your way to becoming a bona fide Mac guru.

In Detail

This book will take you, as a tester or security practitioner through the journey of reconnaissance, vulnerability assessment, exploitation, and post-exploitation activities used by penetration testers and hackers.

We will start off by using a laboratory environment to validate tools and techniques, and using an application that supports a collaborative approach to penetration testing. Further we will get acquainted with passive reconnaissance with open source intelligence and active reconnaissance of the external and internal networks. We will also focus on how to select, use, customize, and interpret the results from a variety of different vulnerability scanners. Specific routes to the target will also be examined, including bypassing physical security and exfiltration of data using different techniques. You will also get to grips with concepts such as social engineering, attacking wireless networks, exploitation of web applications and remote access connections. Later you will learn the practical aspects of attacking user client systems by backdooring executable files. You will focus on the most vulnerable part of the network-directly and bypassing the controls, attacking the end user and maintaining persistence access through social media.

You will also explore approaches to carrying out advanced penetration testing in tightly secured environments, and the book’s hands-on approach will help you understand everything you need to know during a Red teaming exercise or penetration testing
