Practical UNIX and Internet Security

Although some of the material is dated, there is a great deal of practical value in this book.
Information about TPC and UDP ports and their security risks have been very useful.
Had nice presentation, easy to follow and was very detailed.
When Practical Unix Security was first published more than a decade ago, it became an instant classic. Crammed with information about host security, it saved many a Unix system administrator from disaster. The second edition added much-needed Internet security coverage and doubled the size of the original volume.
Recommended with reservations for students & hobbyists only

I got to admit that when the first time this book was released, I bought one. It's a pretty good reference for me as a beginner to cyber security since internet just enter the teenage years. But after a while, due to rapidly changing digital environment, this book is no longer practical. But for textbook user, it still has some basic points that students can use for.
