Publisher's Summary

On 4 May 2000, an email that read "kindly check the attached LOVELETTER" was sent from Philippines. Attached was a virus, the Love Bug, and within days it had paralyzed banks, broadcasters, and businesses across the globe. The age of Crime Dot Com had begun. 

Geoff White charts the astonishing development of hacking, from its birth among the ruins of the Eastern Bloc to its coming of age as the most pervasive threat to our connected world. He takes us inside the workings of real-life cybercrimes, revealing how the tactics of high-tech crooks are now being harnessed by nation states. From Ashley Madison to election rigging, Crime Dot Com is a thrilling account of hacking, past and present, and of what the future might hold.

Well done

The book delivers on its description. The author covers several real-world examples in detail, and organizes everything to present a 'big picture' of what is going on with cybercrime and what we as individuals can do about it (not much but there-are-some-things).

The narration was top notch. His eager delivery is perfectly suited to the material.

Really enjoyed this…

Brought off the back of listening to Geoff White’s dark web podcast series and not disappointed.

Very factual and easy to listen to and absorb, kept me company on my morning jogs, kinda gutted I’ve just finished it.

Superb overview of all things cybercrime

The author has that rare skill of explaining complex technologies in a very accessible way. The book goes through some of the key relatively recent events that have shaped the current state of play in cybercrime, from bank heists to nation state attacks. Where the book excels is in drawing links between the various types of cybercrimes. A book aimed more at the general reader than cybersecurity professionals looking for a deep technical dive.
