Hacking the Cable Modem Review

Geeksinside is proud to post our review of No Starch Press' Hacking the Cable Modem by DerEngel. Not a light 'This is a must read' review, Geeksinside digs deep and tells you exactly what you will find inside.

Taken from the review:

"First let me say that I am thoroughly impressed with both the author and the information content. Hacking the Cable Modem is part textbook and part tutorial, steeped in a plot straight from Hollywood. DerEngel weaves a narrative in the exploration, exploitation and modification of an embedded system with the story of some of the first cable modem hacks in the 90s."

This book is a great resource for information. I have used it to teach certain concepts in networking classes. While a lot of the information seems to be outdated, this book actually does outline a lot of real world systems that are used in cable modem topologies. It also covers the basics that make cable modem hacking possible from a physical security perspective. I recommend buying this one and a second for a friend.
