Other Books Containing Plagiarism

The following table shows other books that contain plagiarism. These are included as reference, as a full review of the book will not be performed. This is generally due to limited time on our side, and us already documenting extensive plagiarism by the author(s). Just enough material was revieweed to determine definitively if plagiarism is present in the book. If there are any doubts about this, consider the wide variety of other extensively documented plagiarism we have uncovered. The same methodology and standards were used; the only difference is the amount of material in the book reviewed.

Software Hacking
Ankit Fadia & Nishant Das Patnaik
Vikas Publishing House
As with many of Fadia's books, this uses many smaller bits from multiple sources to make the greater work. Pages 73-75 from E-Aladdin, 87 from Macrovision, 88-89 from two cdrinfo.com articles, and 205 from Microsoft. In addition, the authors take full code samples and strip the headers without giving credit to the original authors. This can be seen on pages 146-149 and 162-163 from OpenRCE.org (one, two, and three).
