Best book about Hacking and Pay-TV Piracy history, tracing this story from mid 90s to mid 2000's, happenings in USA, Europe and Asia-Australia where the wave of piracy was unexplained for years, now revealed, with details and strong elements that show the real face of the players. A must read and must have in your library.

HASH(0x9cda1444) out of 5 stars A detailed look at unorthodox methods used by Murdoch and associates to get ahead in the pay-tv business 4 Dec. 2013
By Jake Chander - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I was drawn to this book having worked in the pay TV set-top box industry and having followed related incidents in the AFR in 2012. Parts of this book would also interest those following Murdoch's business techniques and controversies, those interested in hacking and related ethics and even those interested in operational security in large, complex organizations. As a whole I found the book too detailed to read continuously. The author however provides a useful timeline at the end. I did like the first half where he describes the main characters of his story, each with their singular backgrounds that later seemed appropriate for what followed.
Knowing the technical achievements of Nds, I see that the author has chosen to leave out their many award-winning contributions to the pay TV business but perhaps those are unrelated to his theme of Murdoch and piracy.

HASH(0x9cc22114) out of 5 stars Hacking and Piracy for Corporations 101 10 Jan. 2013
By Terry - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
A well researched and written book but the detail nearly overwhelms the essential narrative of the corporate culture which could turn its legitimate defence against the criminal activities of others directed against it into criminal activities directed against its competitors
