The latest 2600 is out. If you don’t typically buy it or have the money, just sit down at the bookstore and flip through it and read what you want.
I also see one of the books I’ve really wanted in the last year has been released. Hacking Exposed: Wireless is currently available and in an odd green color. Anyone aware why this one is green? I didn’t pick it up long enough to find out why, but I’ll be buying the book regardless.
On the wireless front, I got my latest Orinoco wireless PCMCIA card on Friday and am very pleased with its performance. It is the Atheros chipset (8470-WD) which means it plays very nicely with BackTrack 2 and monitor mode. In fact, it plugs in and works just fine unless I’ve been juggling cards on that laptop and the last config still has a different card (my BackTrack is fully installed locally, so my settings are saved).
