My picks for hakin9 news

| Armando Romeo |
hakin9 is bimonthly magazine about hacking and IT security, available in 7 languages, covering techniques of breaking into computer systems, defense and protection methods from a learn by practice perspective. This means you don't find abstract theory. Every article is supported by tested source code and proof of concept. This what makes the difference from other similar journals in my opinion.

I'm very proud to be a stable contributor to the magazine providing the hottest news in the industry for every issue.

I have complete freedom of choice both in picking the best news and what to write about them. This means you read unbiased reviews and vendor-independent tests.

(Image refers to issue n.5 available now, next issue cover is not yet finalized)
