What defines the social world of hackers? How do individuals
utilize hacking techniques against corporations, governments, and
the general public? And what motivates them to do so? This book
traces the origins of hacking from the 1950s to today and provides
an in-depth exploration of the ways in which hackers define
themselves, the application of malicious and ethical hacking
techniques, and how hackers' activities are directly tied to the
evolution of the technologies we use every day.
Rather than presenting an overly technical discussion of the
phenomenon of hacking, this work examines the culture of hackers
and the technologies they exploit in an easy-to-understand format.
Additionally, the book documents how hacking can be applied to
engage in various forms of cybercrime, ranging from the creation of
malicious software to the theft of sensitive information and fraud
acts that can have devastating effects upon our modern information
