Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Unfortunately, the prospect of evil forces unleashing an all out cyber-terrorism attack on the civilized world is no longer just a bad dream. There are now forces at work with the motive and the means to cripple the Internet, arguably, all they need now is the opportunity. This work of fiction is written by some of the leading security and counter-terrorism experts in the world today, and it outlines a plot to "own the box" on a truly global scale by compromising an entire continent's network infrastructure. The authors bring to life a scary cast of characters and set them on a course of imminent cyber-attack, shedding light on some of the most lethal hacks yet imagined. In-the-know readers will recognize the technologies, scenarios, and threatened intrusions. The first book in the "Stealing the Network" series was called a "blockbuster" by Wired magazine, a "refreshing change from more traditional computer books" by Slashdot.org, and "an entertaining and informative look at the weapons and tactics employed by those who attack and defend digital systems" by Amazon.com. This follow-on book once again combines a set of fictional stories with real technology to show readers the danger that lurks in the shadows of the information security industry... Could hackers take over a continent?

Book News Annotation:

The second in the publisher's series of fictional stories about hackers using real technologies, this "cyber thriller," written by leading security and counter-terrorism experts, introduces the concept of hacker groups and the damage they can inflict through orchestrated strings of malicious attacks. An appendix presents the actual e-mail exchanges where the story was developed and ideas were exchanged throughout the life of the book.
