Kevin Mitnick was the most wanted hacker in the world. He was called "The Condor," and "Mr. Cyberpunk." He was a rebel. A loner. A poor kid from California thumbing his nose at society as he hacked into phone companies, international corporations--and possibly even the U.S. Military Command. The FBI couldn't stop him. And they sure as hell couldn't catch him. Then Kevin Mitnick did the "impossible." He got into the personal home computer of the man considered by many a master of cybersecurity, Tsutomu Shimomura. That computer held data for advanced security systems and top secret intrusion and surveillance tools. Shimomura--a modern-day intellectual samurai--decided Mitnick had to be stopped. He had the high-tech gadgets and the brains to do it. Now the leading expert on computer crime made it a matter of honor to bring America's most notorious computer criminal to justice. But the Information Highway is the perfect place to run, hide and get away with dirty tricks... Let the battle begin.… (more)
