The problem with the reference books is that they are too descriptive for last moment studies. Whereas the problem with local publications is that they are inaccurate as compared to the reference books.
This particular book encapsulates the subject notes on Data Mining & Business Intelligence with the combined benefits of reference books & local publications. It has the accuracy of a reference book as well as the abstraction of a local publication.
The author studied the subject from various sources such as web lectures, reference books, online tutorials & so on. After having a thorough understanding of the subject, the author compiled this book for an easy understanding of the subject.
This book presents the content in the form of question & answers, with utmost simplicity of language, and in an abstract manner so that it can be used for last moment studies. This book can be used by:
Ø Students to prepare for their examinations
Ø Professionals to prepare for job interviews.
Ø Individuals willing to have a basic understanding of the domain: Data Mining & Business Intelligence.

If you are a software engineer or reverse engineer and want to learn more about Linux binary analysis, this book will provide you with all you need to implement solutions for binary analysis in areas of security, forensics, and antivirus. This book is great for both security enthusiasts and system level engineers. Some experience with the C programming language and the Linux command line is assumed.What You Will LearnExplore the internal workings of the ELF binary formatDiscover techniques for UNIX Virus infection and analysisWork with binary hardening and software anti-tamper methodsPatch executables and process memoryBypass anti-debugging measures used in malwarePerform advanced forensic analysis of binariesDesign ELF-related tools in the C languageLearn to operate on memory with ptraceIn Detail
Learning Linux Binary Analysis is packed with knowledge and code that will teach you the inner workings of the ELF format, and the methods used by hackers and security analysts for virus analysis, binary patching, software protection and more.
This book will start by taking you through UNIX/Linux object utilities, and will move on to teaching you all about the ELF specimen. You will learn about process tracing, and will explore the different types of Linux and UNIX viruses, and how you can make use of ELF Virus Technology to deal with them.
The latter half of the book discusses the usage of Kprobe instrumentation for kernel hacking, code patching, and debugging. You will discover how to detect and disinfect kernel-mode rootkits, and move on to analyze static code. Finally, you will be walked through complex userspace memory infection analysis.
This book will lead you into territory that is uncharted even by some experts; right into the world of the computer hacker.Style and approach
The material in this book provides detailed insight into the arcane arts of hacking, coding, reverse engineering Linux executables, and dissecting process memory. In the computer security industry these skills are priceless, and scarce. The tutorials are filled with knowledge gained through first hand experience, and are complemented with frequent examples including source code.
