The art of intrusion

Hacker extraordinaire Kevin Mitnick
delivers the explosive encore
to his bestselling The Art of Deception

Kevin Mitnick, the world's most celebrated hacker,
now devotes his life to helping businesses and governments combat data thieves,
cybervandals, and other malicious
computer intruders.
In his bestselling The Art of Deception,
Mitnick presented fictionalized
case studies that illustrated
how savvy computer crackers use
"social engineering" to compromise
even the most technically secure computer systems. Now, in his new book,
Mitnick goes one step further,
offering hair-raising stories of real-life computer break-ins-and
showing how the victims could have prevented them.
Mitnick's reputation within the hacker community
gave him unique credibility with the perpetrators of these crimes,
who freely shared their stories with him-and whose exploits
Mitnick now reveals in detail for the first time, including:

* A group of friends who won nearly a million dollars in Las Vegas by reverse-engineering slot machines
* Two teenagers who were persuaded by terrorists to hack into the
Lockheed Martin computer systems
* Two convicts who joined forces to become hackers inside a Texas prison
* A "Robin Hood" hacker who penetrated the computer
systems of many prominent companies-andthen
told them how he gained access

With riveting "you are there" descriptions of real computer break-ins, i
ndispensable tips on countermeasures security professionals
need to implement now, and Mitnick's own acerbic c
ommentary on the crimes he describes, this book is sure to reach a wide audience-and attract the attention of both law
enforcement agencies and the media.
