Overview

In recent years information warfare has trickled from the domain of governments and megacorporations into the lives and workplaces of the average citizen, and privacy concerns are at an all-time high. Cybershock is the first book to guide the average Internet user through online perils and offers answers and solutions in common-sense language. Winn Schwartau leads readers through the basics (What's hacking? Who hacks?), introduces actual hacking tools and techniques, and using corporate, law enforcement, and military examples, teaches how to become a successful anti-hacker. It also provides balanced viewpoints through graphic, pictorial, and written contributions from the principal stakeholders: hackers and phreakers; corporate security experts; lawyers and cyberjudicial professionals; and officers with the security-sensitive military and government agencies. The book includes an extensive listing of both hacking and anti-hacking Internet sites and a compendium of the leading anti-hacking security products and tools.
