    1. This book is a good read as far as technical books go, however it has something lacking. It feels as though more time could be spent analyzing closed source programs rather than the examples chosen: VLC, Solaris, etc.Thy said, the presentation is great. Each example has a very clear approach and methodology. If you are new to bug hunting, or want to get a taste of what bug hunting is about, this book is for you. If you are a seasoned veteran of bugs, your time is probably better spent developing [...]

    2. For a long time you keep hearing things like "don't use this 'cause it can be exploited", but you really never saw something like that being exploited. And then comes this book and shows how someone can use everything you know you can't use to actually call something it wasn't expected to be called. Confusing? Well, it's a very complex issue that involves the call stack and assembly and registers and all that. But the book goes into length explaining and showing those things (so, yeah, some know [...]

    4. gives you an insight into how the finest of reverse engineering think and process those bugs, most importantly coding the exploit. Brief but not concise, Tobias claims that the reason is due to the cyber law in germany.

    5. Giving two stars purely based on my own experience with this. I'm clearly not target audience for this. An interesting read but way past my level of technical competence to fully understand it.

    6. I absolutely loved this book!It clears much of the magic behind those elite hackers and how they discover high profile vulns
