Countdown to Zero Day: Stuxnet and the Launch of the World's First Digital Weapon

Countdown to Zero Day: Stuxnet and the Launch of the World's First Digital Weapon

An eye-opening look at the vulnerabilities inherent in a connected world, this book tells the story of the first large scale cyberweapon (that we know of) through the eyes of those that discovered it. It’s a sober reminder for those of us who write software for a living that what we create can also be co-opted for destructive purposes. It’s also a call to contemplate the implications of our software-controlled economy and how it is changing the landscape of warfare.

★★★☆☆
