A guide on the OSSEC Host-based Intrusion Detection system. It shows how to install and configure OSSEC on the operating system of your choice and provide detailed examples to help prevent and mitigate attacks on your systems. This book is the definitive guide on the OSSEC Host-based Intrusion Detection system and frankly, to really use OSSEC you are going to need a definitive guide. Documentation has been available since the start of the OSSEC project but, due to time constraints, no formal book has been created to outline the various features and functions of the OSSEC product. This has left very important and powerful features of the product undocumented...until now! The book you are holding will show you how to install and configure OSSEC on the operating system of your choice and provide detailed examples to help prevent and mitigate attacks on your systems. -- Stephen Northcutt OSSEC determines if a host has been compromised in this manner by taking the equivalent of a picture of the host machine in its original, unaltered state. This ´´picture´´ captures the most relevant information about that machine´s configuration. OSSEC saves this ´´picture´´ and then constantly compares it to the current state of that machine to identify anything that may have changed from the original configuration. Now, many of these changes are necessary, harmless, and authorized, such as a system administrator installing a new software upgrade, patch, or application. But, then there are the not-so-harmless changes, like the installation of a rootkit, trojan horse, or virus. Differentiating between the harmless and the not-so-harmless changes determines whether the system administrator or security professional is managing a secure, efficient network or a compromised network which might be funneling credit card numbers out to phishing gangs or storing massive amounts of pornography creating significant liability for that organization. Separating the wheat from the chaff is by no means an easy task. Hence the need for this book. The book is co-authored by Daniel Cid, who is the founder and lead developer of the freely available OSSEC host-based IDS. As such, readers can be certain they are reading the most accurate, timely, and insightful information on OSSEC. Nominee for Best Book Bejtlich read in 2008!

The phenomenal bestseller by the author of the Twilight saga--a gripping story of love and betrayal with the fate of humanity at stake, featuring what may be the first love triangle involving only two bodies--is now available in a tall Premium Edition featuring a bonus chapter.
Planet Erde, irgendwann in der Zukunft. Fast die gesamte Menschheit ist von Seelen besetzt. Der ungewöhnliche Kampf zweier Frauen, die sich einen Körper teilen müssen, eine hinreißende Liebesgeschichte, und die wohl erste Dreiecksgeschichte mit nur zwei Köpfen.
Coma-reimagined for the twenty-first century from the undisputed king of medical thrillers. Lynn Peirce, a fourth-year medical student at South Carolina´s Mason-Dixon University, thinks she has her life figured out. But when her otherwise healthy boyfriend, Carl, enters the hospital for routine surgery, her neatly ordered life is thrown into total chaos. Carl fails to return to consciousness after the procedure, and an MRI confirms brain death. Devastated by Carl´s condition, Lynn searches for answers. Convinced there´s more to the story than what the authorities are willing to reveal, Lynn uses all her resources at Mason-Dixon-including her initially reluctant lab partner, Michael Pender-to hunt down evidence of medical error or malpractice. What she uncovers, however, is far more disturbing. Hospitals associated with Middleton Healthcare, including the Mason-Dixon Medical Center, have unnervingly high rates of unexplained anesthetic complications and patients contracting serious and terminal illness in the wake of routine hospital admissions. When Lynn and Michael begin to receive death threats, they know they´re into something bigger than either of them anticipated. They soon enter a desperate race against time for answers before shadowy forces behind Middleton Healthcare and their partner, Sidereal Pharmaceuticals, can put a stop to their efforts once and for all.
The author of the bestselling Twilight series delivers her brilliant first novel for adults that´s also suitable for teen readers: a gripping story of love and betrayal with the fate of humanity at stake, featuring what may be the first love triangle involving only two bodies.
