The world's most infamous hacker offers an insider's view of the low-tech threats to high-tech security. Kevin Mitnick's exploits as a cyber-desperado and fugitive form one of the most exhaustive FBI manhunts in history and have spawned dozens of articles, books, films, and documentaries. Since his release from federal prison, in 1998, Mitnick has turned his life around and established himself as one of the most sought-after computer security experts worldwide. Now, in The Art of Deception, the world's most notorious hacker gives new meaning to the old adage, "It takes a thief to catch a thief."

Focusing on the human factors involved with information security, Mitnick explains why all the firewalls and encryption protocols in the world will never be enough to stop a savvy grifter intent on rifling a corporate database or an irate employee determined to crash a system. With the help of many fascinating true stories of successful attacks on business and government, he illustrates just how susceptible even the most locked-down information systems are to a slick con artist impersonating an IRS agent.

In June 2011, Julian Assange received an unusual visitor: the chairman of Google, Eric Schmidt, arrived from America at Ellingham Hall, the country residence in Norfolk, England where Assange was living under house arrest.

For several hours the besieged leader of the world’s most famous insurgent publishing organization and the billionaire head of the world’s largest information empire locked horns. The two men debated the political problems faced by society, and the technological solutions engendered by the global networkfrom the Arab Spring to Bitcoin. They outlined radically opposing perspectives: for Assange, the liberating power of the Internet is based on its freedom and statelessness. For Schmidt, emancipation is at one with US foreign policy objectives and is driven by connecting non-Western countries to American companies and markets. These differences embodied a tug-of-war over the Internet’s future that has only gathered force subsequently.

Auszug: Ein Computerwurm (im Computerkontext kurz Wurm) ist ein Computerprogramm oder Skript mit der Eigenschaft, sich selbst zu vervielfältigen, nachdem er ausgeführt wurde. In Abgrenzung zum Computervirus verbreitet sich der Wurm ohne fremde Dateien oder Bootsektoren mit seinem Code zu infizieren. Würmer verbreiten sich über Netzwerke oder über Wechselmedien wie USB-Sticks. Dafür benötigen sie gewöhnlich (aber nicht zwingend) ein Hilfsprogramm, wie einen Netzwerkdienst oder eine Anwendungssoftware als Schnittstelle zum Netz; für Wechselmedien benötigen sie meist einen Dienst, der nach dem Anschluss des belasteten Mediums den automatischen Start des Wurms ermöglicht (wie Autorun, mitunter auch den aktiven Desktop von Windows). French Navy Rafales planes were unable to take off after military computers were infected by Conficker. Royal Navy and RAF were attacked by a version of Conficker that infected some 24 RAF bases, 75% of the Royal Navy fleet and the Ark Royal aircraft carrier.
