Hacker extraordinaire, Kevin Mitnick delivers the explosive encore to his bestselling The Art of Deception . Kevin Mitnick, the world's most celebrated hacker, now devotes his life to helping businesses and governments combat data thieves, cybervandals, and other malicious comput...er intruders. In his bestselling The Art of Deception , Mitnick presented fictionalized case studies that illustrated how savvy computer crackers use social engineering to compromise even the most technically secure computer systems. Now, in his new book, Mitnick goes one step further, offering hair raising stories of real life computer break ins and showing how the victims could have prevented them. Mitnick's reputation within the hacker community gave him unique credibility with the perpetrators of these crimes, who freely shared their stories with him and whose exploits Mitnick now reveals in detail for the first time, including: a group of friends who won nearly a million dollars in Las Vegas by reverse engineering slot machines; two teenagers who were persuaded by terrorists to hack into the Lockheed Martin computer systems; two convicts who joined forces to become hackers inside a Texas prison; and, a Robin Hood hacker who penetrated the computer systems of many prominent companies and then told them how he gained access. With riveting you are there descriptions of real computer break ins, indispensable tips on countermeasures security professionals need to implement now, and Mitnick's own acerbic commentary on the crimes he describes, this book is sure to reach a wide audience and attract the attention of both law enforcement agencies and the media.
