Posted on: 01/18/2005 07:06 AM
Kevin Milne has written Z4CK, a cyber thriller based around Duncan Steele, a hacker who creates the 'magic bullet' that lets him by-pass any network security. Duncan uses Z4CK meaning Zaurus-ACK, compiled on the OpenZaurus OS to do this.
Unlike Films like 'The Net', Z4CK gives a realistic insight into hacker tools and techniques. The book was written with a Zaurus SL-5500 and PocketTop keyboard. Z4CK features wireless hacking with the Zaurus, and a view of how an Open Source future might be.
The first 6 chapters of the book are FREE, in PDF, Plucker or Palm DOC format. The full electronic version is $3. Surf to http://www.z4ck.org

Signed copies are available from the website at £7.50, or through Amazon.com at around $12.
