"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."
—Publishers Weekly

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.

    This is a good thing?

    I just started reading the book, and it looks good so far.
    I am perplexed though about the "Comrade" case. It says he originally got 6 mo. in a detention facility, with 6 months probation - all deferred until the end of the school semester. But his mom "helped", by writing letters and such. She managed to get him 4 years probation, instead.
    So, instead of one year and his being completely done with the Feds...he spent FOUR years under their thumb...and this is a good thing??
    Gee! Thanks, mom! O.o

    Great book

    I really enjoyed this book. It's not only entertaining and informative about how the minds of these hackers work, but his advice to computer professionals and companies is something anyone involved with computers should read.
