Dark Territory: The Secret History of Cyber War

As cyber-attacks dominate front-page news, as hackers displace terrorists on the list of global threats, and as top generals warn of a coming cyber war, few books are more timely and enlightening than Dark Territory: The Secret History of Cyber War, by Slate columnist and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Fred Kaplan.

Kaplan probes the inner corridors of the National Security Agency, the beyond-top-secret cyber units in the Pentagon, the "information warfare" squads of the military services, and the national security debates in the White House, to tell this never-before-told story of the officers, policymakers, scientists, and spies who devised this new form of warfare and who have been planning—and (more often than people know) fighting—these wars for decades.

Hacking is a term that has been associated with negativity over the years. It has been mentioned when referring to a range of cyber crimes including identity theft, stealing of information and generally being disruptive. However, all this is actually a misconception and misunderstanding – a misuse of the word hacking by people who have criminalized this skill. Hacking is actually more about acquiring and properly utilizing a programming skill. The intention of hacking is for the improvement of a situation, rather than of taking advantage of a situation. These books provide a holistic view of everything that is entailed in hacking, explaining both the negative side of hacking and the positive side. The details that are discussed in this book include how to acquire the right hacking skills, and how to then develop these skills over a period of time. These details are laid out in topic-specific chapters. The book begins by explaining the effects of hacking from a global perspective. Companies which have been negatively affected by computer hackers are mentioned, as well as the intentions of the hackers ascertained, and the overall long-term effects determined. Although most hackers have a negative intention, reviewing these hacking stories reveals that in some cases, the intentions are not negative, they are just reported in that way. Hacking is actually all about programming, and the understanding of proper programming in hacking is explained. This explanation is done in relation to the right platform for developing a program, and an understanding of what the program should do is also given. Anyone can learn how to hack into certain pages on the internet, but not everyone can do so in a way that is not destructive. Once one has an understanding of hacking, it will be possible to say how it can ethically be applied. This book will show you how hacking today can be done for the purposes of security and protection of data. By taking the time to understand how hacking works, people are able to better protect themselves from hackers and to ascertain when they have had their information hacked. Areas, where people are vulnerable, can be addressed and resolved, and the result could be an increase in overall online safety. This book will explain hacking in its positive light, so as to educate and help would be hackers make responsible decisions when it comes to using their hacking skills. So if you have been searching for reliable, legal and ethical information on how to become a hacker, then you are at the right place. ***Limited Edition***

Mr. Robot and Philosophy (Popular Culture and Philosophy)

Mr. Robot has been hailed, not only as one of the most haunting and unnerving dramas ever to appear on television, but also as the first accurate popular presentation of how computer hacking and cyberterrorism actually work. Mr. Robot and Philosophy is aimed at thoughtful fans of this addictive show who will welcome the opportunity to explore Elliot Alderson's world from a philosophical perspective.
The developing story of Mr. Robot constantly raises ethical and metaphysical issues. What happens to our personal identity when it’s extended into cyberspace and an array of electronic devices? Are we in control of our online lives or are we being controlled? What does our right to privacy mean in a world where millions of people can observe what we’re doing and saying? Is a virtual currency true money and could it replace traditional money? Can there be healthy forms of drug addiction? Can some types of so-called mental illness be useful and beneficial?
Does it make any sense to unleash destruction upon the existing corporate economic structures, and can we expect something better to emerge from the ruins of a digital meltdown?
