The Gang That Ruled Cyberspace

>> Wednesday, January 20, 2010

I found this book very entertaining. It is a true story about a pack of teenagers that were thought to be responsible for the giant AT&T crash after being tracked by the FBI for some time. It talks about the whole hacker underground culture in the very beginning, mentioning the famous Legion of Doom (LoD) and Masters of Destruction (and later) Deception (MoD).         { Read Full Story }

Besides the change in technology, the underground discussed in the book is still very much similar to the one that exists today. It tells the journey of a few teenagers as they get interested in the hacking scene, how they grow in knowledge and skill, and how their morals/ethics start to change as their skill increases which gets them in lots of trouble.
