Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-9-Knittel and Soto define the term "hacking" and detail the work of "good hackers" or "white hats," people they usually refer to as computer experts, and those who are "crackers" or "black hats," individuals who illegally break into other people's computers. The authors use real-life examples of hackers who have been caught and punished for breaking the law. They give examples of good hackers as well, such as Bill Gates, Steve Wozniak, and Steve Jobs. The book offers a thorough history of hacking, beginning with "phreaking" over phone lines and the movie War Games. It examines the social and economic repercussions of damaging high-level computers and addresses breaches in military security. The authors encourage readers to become good hackers. They give advice regarding how and where to learn more about computers and programming. Average-quality, black-and-white photos appear throughout.-Yapha Nussbaum Mason, Brentwood Lower School, Los Angeles Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
