|Summary, etc.:||"In Spam Nation, investigative journalist and cybersecurity expert Brian Krebs unmasks the criminal masterminds driving some of the biggest operations targeting you and your bank accounts. Tracing the rise, fall, and alarming resurrection of the digital mafia behind two of the largest spam pharmacies - and countless viruses, phishing, and spyware attacks - he delivers the definitive narrative of this global problem and its threat to consumers everywhere. Even those who never open junk messages aren't safe. These days, through junk mail, spammers can hack into email accounts, harvest personal information like usernames and passwords, and sell them on the digital black market. Fast-paced and utterly gripping, Spam Nation is a vital call to action to stem this tidal wave of cybercrime before its too late." -- book cover|
