Have you checked out the Hacme Bank @ Foundstone?

It is a fictitious banking application that Foundstone created to
teach hacking. It has a number of known and common vulnerabilities.
This allows users to attempt real exploits against a web application
and thus learn the specifics of the issue and how best to fix it.

Warning: You won't find any of these vulnerabilities any mainstream
banking site ;-)


I am looking for a good book of hacking.  I would like something that has examples and labs.  Does anyone know of a good 
book or website where I can find something like that?  Basically I would like to learn hacking on my own and most books I 
have seen don't have enough information and really not teaching you anything other than give you basic information.
