I realised that, at that point of time, at least in India, there were no books on hacking.

At the top end you have players like Ernst & Young and PricewaterhouseCoopers, who charge an exorbitant amount of money and not their specialty. They do other sorts of consulting, and as an extra freebie they do security consulting as well. At the other end, you have a few small companies here and there, who donít give the quality and the efficiency thatís actually required in the industry. So between these two types of companies there is a huge gap, which I am trying to fill.

Q: But the criminal/s might be in some remote part of the world. How will you trace them?

A: By using techniques like Soft well and Fire Wall, one can detect the IP addresses of the miscreants and filter them out. After this they can no longer access to that particular website.

NOTE: This feature or trick has been tested on a system running Netscape Enterprise with Port 8088 open. It may or may no work with other Operating systems.

The Traceroute tool can be considered to be a part of the ICMP protocol as it makes use of mainly this protocol.

Yes, many of the Perl tutorials and Hacking tutorials that I have posted on the web, do contain certain tiny mistakes. However, most of them have been put on purpose, while others are mistakes on my own part.
