A complex, eye-opening account of cybercrime, one of the world's fastest growing sectors of criminal activity. Thanks to the relentless march of technology, we can check email in bed, have intercontinental sex on Skype, update our blogs on the street, and even tweet on the toilet.
Meanwhile, our personal DarkMarket : Cyberthieves, Cybercops, and You. Misha Glenny. Essential reading. The world has become a law enforcer's nightmare and every criminal's dream. We bank online; shop online; date, learn, work and live online. But have the institutions that keep us safe on the streets learned to protect us in the burgeoning digital world? Have we become complacent about our personal security—sharing our thoughts, beliefs and the details of our daily lives with anyone who might care to relieve us of them?
In this fascinating and compelling book, Misha Glenny, author of the international best seller McMafia , explores the three fundamental threats facing us in the twenty-first century: cybercrime, cyberwarfare and cyberindustrial espionage. Governments and the private sector are losing billions of dollars each year fighting an ever-morphing, often invisible and often supersmart new breed of criminal: the hacker.
Glenny has traveled and trawled the world. By exploring the rise and fall of the criminal website DarkMarket he has uncovered the most vivid, alarming and illuminating stories. Whether JiLsi or Matrix, Iceman, Master Splynter or Lord Cyric; whether Detective Sergeant Chris Dawson in Scunthorpe, England, or Agent Keith Mularski in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Glenny has tracked down and interviewed all the players—the criminals, the geeks, the police, the security experts and the victims—and he places everyone and everything in a rich brew of politics, economics and history.
The result is simply unputdownable. DarkMarket is authoritative and completely engrossing. It's a must-read for everyone who uses a computer: the essential crime book for our times. Glenny covered the fall of Communism and the wars in the former Yugoslavia. He has been regularly consulted by U. Misha Glenny lives in London.
