Terse and snappy, it reads like Raymond Chandler and provides detailed insight into a time in computer history that already seems quaint. Kevin Mitnick was and is a true Internet pioneer' John Perry Barlow, co-founder of the Electronic Frontier Foundation; known as the Thomas Jefferson of cyberspace 'Intriguing, insightful and extremely educational into the mind of one who truly mastered the art of social engineering with the use of a computer and modern day technologies' Frank W. Abagnale, author of Catch Me if You Can 'At last, America's most famous hacker tells his headline-making story from his own point of view. The result is more than just a meticulous chronicle of Kevin Mitnick's hacks - it's an expose of the invisible bureaucratic machinery underlying nearly every aspect of our lives, and how easily it's subverted by a smooth-taking grifter who sees all the moving parts. A fascinating read' Kevin Poulsen, author of Kingpin: How One Hacker Took Over the Billion Dollar Cyber Crime UndergroundReseña del editor:
Kevin Mitnick, the world's most wanted computer hacker, managed to hack into some of the country's most powerful - and seemingly impenetrable - agencies and companies. By conning employees into giving him private information and maneuvering through layers of security, he gained access to data that no one else could.
The suspenseful heart of the book unfolds as Mitnick disappears on a three-year run from the FBI. He creates fake identities, finds jobs at a law firm and hospital, and keeps tabs on his myriad pursuers - all while continuing to hack into computer systems and phone company switches that were considered flawless.
A modern, technology-driven adventure story, GHOST IN THE WIRES is a dramatic account of the joy of outsmarting security programs, the satisfaction of code-cracking, and the thrill of unbelievable escape.
