Product description

Review

"Part detective story, part scary-brilliant treatise on the future of warfare...an ambitious, comprehensive, and engrossing book that should be required reading for anyone who cares about the threats that America--and the world--are sure to be facing over the coming years."
--Kevin Mitnick, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Ghost in the Wires "and "The Art of Intrusion"
"Unpacks this complex issue with the panache of a spy thriller...even readers who can't tell a PLC from an iPad will learn much from Zetter's accessible, expertly crafted account."
--"Publishers Weekly" (starred)
"A true techno-whodunit [that] offers a sharp account of past mischief and a glimpse of things to come...Zetter writes lucidly about mind-numbingly technical matters, reveling in the geekery of malware and espionage, and she takes the narrative down some dark electronic corridors... Governments, hackers and parties unknown are launching ticking computer time bombs every day, all coming to a laptop near you."
--"Kirkus"
"An exciting and readable story of the world's first cyberweapon. Zetter not only explains the weapon and chronicles its discovery, but explains the motives and mechanics behind the attack -- and makes a powerful argument why this story matters."
--Bruce Schneier, author of "Secrets and Lies "and "Schneier on Security"

"Exhaustively researched...gives a full account of this "hack of the century," as the operation has been called, [but] the book goes well beyond its ostensible subject to offer a hair-raising introduction to the age of cyber warfare."
--"Wall Street Journal"

"Immensely enjoyable...Zetter turns a complicated and technical cyber- story into an engrossing whodunit...The age of digital warfare may well have begun."
--Washington Post

"An authoritative account of Stuxnet's spread and discovery...[delivers] a sobering message about the vulnerability of the systems--train lines, water-treatment plants, electricity grids--that make modern life possible."
--Economist
