Book - Zero Day Threat

I finished another book, this time i read "Zero Day Threat" a very interesting investigation about cybercrime, made by two journalist (Byron Acohido and Jon Swartz).

As stated in the cover they show us "The Shocking Truth of How Banks and Credit Bureaus Help Cyber Crooks Steal Your Money and Identity"

The book is very well narrated, i liked how they focused the history from 3 different point of view (The Exploiters, the Expediters and the Enablers). The authors made a fantastic job in the investigation and in the accuracy of the information given by the book.

It's a must for anyone who wants to know how the cybercrime is organized and the inner workings of these mafias. You could learn how they steal identities, credit cards, passwords, etc and how they transform all of these in money through laundering tricks.

After reading the book you get a feeling of being totally naked and vulnerable to the cybercrime mafias. I was aware of all the technological issues involving cybercrime, but now i'm aware of the other two pieces in this game and i get the full picture on how everything works.

You can check the site of the book for more information:

Pages: 304
