Thanks in advance

if you're willing to shell out a few dollars there is a book called "Hacking: the art of exploitation" by a guy named Jon Erickson that is worth the money. It comes with a cd that contains a linux environment and some programs that are useful. It also does a very good job of explaining things and playing around with code. I already knew a little when I checked it out and I'm still working through it and learning a lot.

Forget all the new crap that's come out. Hacking manuals, crypto for dummies, all that stuff. Go read some of Edgar Allen Poe's old ciphers and cryptography writings. The man was a genius far ahead of his time.

Speaking of Poe, make sure to read 'The golden bug'.

Also, Applied Cryptography is a must read.
