Book News Annotation:
Explains the hows and whys of many subversive computer activities. While there is information for those wishing to protect themselves from would-be hackers, focus is on the hacker, the disgruntled employee, the rebel with a cause, and the prankster with lots of time on his hands. Those who fall into any of those categories will love this plain-talk guide to using computers and the Internet for mischievous purposes. Discusses areas such as alternate sources of news and information, encryption software, harassing an online service, and writing a computer virus.
