The Art of Intrusion
The Real Stories Behind the Exploits of Hackers, Intruders, & DeceiversBook - 2005
"Four pals clean up in Vegas with a pocket-sized computer. A bored Canadian teen gains access to the wire transfers section of a major Southern bank. A couple of kids are recruited to hack into Lockheed Martin and the Defense Information System Network by a terrorist with ties to Osama bin Laden." "Kevin Mitnick, whose own exploits have made him a veritable hacker's hero, shares more than a dozen true stories of cyber-invasions - devilishly ingenious, highly effective schemes that kick up your pulse rate even as you marvel at their sheer audacity. Each is followed by Mitnick's expert analysis of how the attack could have been prevented. And he is uniquely qualified to recommend effective security measures. Both a legend in the hacker underworld and a general in the war on cybercrime, Kevin Mitnick holds the one weapon most likely to take down the intruder - intimate knowledge of the hacker's brilliant and tenacious mind."--Jacket.
