Praise for the first edition of Black Hat Python
"Another incredible Python book. With a minor tweak or two many of these programs will have at least a ten year shelf life, and that is rare for a security book."
-Stephen Northcutt, founding president of the SANS Technology Institute
"A great book using Python for offensive security purposes."
-Andrew Case, Volatility core developer and coauthor of The Art of Memory Forensics
"If you truly have a hacker's mindset, a spark is all you need to make it your own and do something even more amazing. Justin Seitz offers plenty of sparks."
"Whether you're interested in becoming a serious hacker/penetration tester or just want to know how they work, this book is one you need to read. Intense, technically sound, and eye-opening."
-Sandra Henry-Stocker, IT World
"Definitely a recommended read for the technical security professional with some basic previous exposure to Python."
-Richard Austin, IEEE Cipher
"A well-written book that will put you on track to being able to write powerful and potentially scary tools. It's up to you to use them for good."
-Steve Mansfield-Devine, editor of Elsevier's Network Security Newsletter
"A well implemented read with lots of good ideas for fun offensive Python projects. So enjoy, and don't forget it's all about the code!"
-Dan Borges, LockBoxx
"A useful eye-opener."
