Who’s sending you all that spam? Who’s trying to break into your computer? Who’s planting hidden spyware there? Who’s trying to con you out of your password? Read Black Hat and find out.
John Biggs has catalogued the scams and the scammers. You’ll dive into a spam email message to figure out where it came from. You’ll learn how your computer might be sitting in harness with millions more, waiting for the command to start processing on behalf of someone you’ve never heard of. (OK, they say they won’t. But they can.) You’ll learn who captured every keystroke on the public computers at Manhattan’s Kinko’s -- user IDs, passwords, and all. How worms work. How online stock market scams work. How not to get phished. Can you afford not to know this stuff? Bill Camarda
