Over a year ago the BackTrack team joined forces with social-engineer.org to support the creation of the world’s first framework based around social engineering.
With the framework came the addition of some great tools to BackTrack, such as SET (The Social Engineers Toolkit), created by Dave “Rel1k” Kennedy.
Today, the BackTrack team would like to congratulate Chris “loganWHD” for the release of his book, “Social Engineering: The Art of Human Hacking”.
This book has been widely anticipated and will help many new to the field of social engineering answer that
age old question: “Where do I start?”
Experienced social engineers will gain benefit as well, as the book dives deep into some of the most complex and important aspects of social engineering. Topics range from information gathering to micro-expressions to non-verbal behavior and much more.
As systems become more and more protected, targeting the users has become the lowest effort way into many companies. Professional penetration testers will gain much value from this book, as it covers many of the most effective attack vectors available today.
