    Description"Violent Python" shows you how to move from a theoretical understanding of offensive computing concepts to a practical implementation. Instead of relying on another attacker's tools, this book will teach you to forge your own weapons using the Python programming language. This book demonstrates how to write Python scripts to automate large-scale network attacks, extract metadata, and investigate forensic artifacts. It also shows how to write code to intercept and analyze network traffic using Python, craft and spoof wireless frames to attack wireless and Bluetooth devices, and how to data-mine popular social media websites and evade modern anti-virus.

    Review quote
    "An information security specialist with the US Army, O'Connor introduces the hacker's programming language Python to new users, and describes some advanced features to those who already know it."--Reference and Research Book News, August 2013 "A quick glance at [the authors] collective credentials and experience undoubtedly creates high expectations for this title. The end result is that the book demonstrates how powerful just a few dozen lines of Python code can be. useful tips and tricks will surely be acquired simply by working through the exercises."--The Ethical Hacker Network, February 27, 2013 "Violent Python is an excellent resource that develops and enhances a diverse set of security-related Python skills. The book also serves as a great reference, where recipes could be quickly implemented to address specific issues as they arise. Readers who are actively working in an InfoSec position will likely be able to put their newly acquired skills to use immediately, and those looking to break into the field will acquire skills that differentiate themselves from others who are dependent on prebuilt tools. This title is highly recommended for anyone who wants to improve his or her Python skills within the InfoSec realm."--The Ethical Hacker Network, February 27, 2013 "When it comes to Python and penetration testing, TJ O'Connor is the grand Python master. This is the book that keeps on giving. From building penetration testing Python scripts, to antivirus-evading penetration testing malware, to interrogating the Windows Registry and investigating other forensic artifacts...O'Connor masterfully walks the reader from basic to advanced penetration testing techniques with sample code throughout."--Ove Carroll, SANS Certified Instructor, Co-Author of SANS Forensics 408 - Windows In Depth "Violent Python is chalked full of practical examples and is for all security professionals. It covers the spectrum - knowledge for pen testers to forensic analysts, beginner to advanced and offensive to defensive tasks. If you are involved in information security and are looking for a Python book, this is an excellent source."--James Shewmaker, Security Analyst, Bluenotch Corporation "The best hackers know when to write their own tools. Violent Python is a very relevant collection of examples to seed your personal hacking toolbox. From offensive actions to digital forensics, this book has useful bits for everyone."--Raphael Mudge, Creator of Armitage
