The Language of SQL: How to Access Data in Relational Databases

Description Most SQL texts attempt to serve as an encyclopedic reference on SQL syntax — an approach that is counterproductive, since this information is readily available in online references published by the major database vendors. For SQL beginners, it’s more important for a book to focus on general concepts and offer clear explanations and examples of what the various statements can accomplish. This is that beginner book. A number of features make The LANGUAGE OF SQL unique among introductory SQL books. First, you will not be required to download software or sit with a computer as you read the text. The intent of this book...


Rootkits and Bootkits: Reversing Modern Malware and Next Generation Threats

Description Rootkits and Bootkits will teach you how to understand and counter sophisticated, advanced threats buried deep in a machine’s boot process or UEFI firmware. With the aid of numerous case studies and professional research from three of the world’s leading security experts, you’ll trace malware development over time from rootkits like TDL3 to present-day UEFI implants and examine how they infect a system, persist through reboot, and evade security software. As you inspect and dissect real malware, you’ll learn: • How Windows boots—including 32-bit, 64-bit, and UEFI mode—and where to find vulnerabilities • The details of boot process security mechanisms like Secure Boot, including an...
