The security book that I'd like to see written (and which I'd buy)
Good security books are few and far between. But IF someone writes the following book, I'll pre-order it immediately, even if it costs a hundred dollars:

Generally, I am horrible at all things *nix, and there are few enough good books around which teach you clever things to do with a shell. Unfortunately, there is no book that teaches people what to do with a shell on someone else's box.
Someone from Matasano told me they'd post their favourite commands if I wrote this blog post - so let's see it ! :)
(I'd like to start this by posting, but honestly -- I wouldn't be asking if I knew anything I'd not be embarrassed about. I mentioned above that I suck at all things *nix)
