"Enter the hostile world of computer crime from the comfort of your own armchair. Mitnick presents ten compelling chapters, each the result of an interview with a real hacker about a real attack. A must-read for anyone with an interest in information security."
—Tom Parker, Computer Security Analyst and founder of Global InterSec LLC
"Each chapter begins with a computer crime story that reads like a suspense novel."
"It would be difficult to find an author with more credibility than Mitnick to write about the art of hacking. . . . [The Art of Intrusion] introduces readers to a fascinating array of pseudonymous hackers. One group bilks Las Vegas casinos out of more than a million dollars by mastering the patterns inherent in slot machines; another fellow, less fortunate, gets mixed up with a presumed al-Qaeda–style terrorist. . . . Uniformly readable, the stories . . . will impart familiar lessons to security pros while introducing lay readers to an enthralling field of inquiry."
When you're a legend among hackers, they tell you their stories
If you're a computer security officer, these tales crawled out of that closet where your nightmares live. Fears about national security keeping you awake? Put the coffee on; it gets worse. And if you just enjoy a darn good real-life spy story, strap yourself in for a wild read.
