Quotes and reviews

"Authors Robert Bathurst, Russ Rogers and Alijohn Ghassemlouei detail the fundamentals of the OS X environment and its many vulnerabilities…The book is a like a slimmed-down version of Hacking Exposed for the Mac…in that it both shows how to attack the operating system, in addition to detailing defensive measures to stop attackers."--RSAConference.com, March 5, 2013
