can order a card printer and some blank cards over the internet and start printing fake credit cards, with fake ID Drivers licenses to accompany it hide spoiler It was interesting to see that it doesn t really matter how secure safe you try be with your own cards, the bridge in security will most likely not happen on your side, or with your online usage view spoiler It goes down to the level of buying take aways and the P.O.S storing your credit card details locally on a computer full of security loop holes like VNC with no encryption hide spoiler Some of the hacking also seemed over simplified, although some of the initial phases of security probably was that easy to compromise view spoiler It seemed like you can buy a big antenna, and go walk around finding all these open WiFi hotspots from where you can could just hack a bank or the FBI hide spoiler I liked some of the white hat initiatives of warning people about security loop holes before publishing it.This book really makes you think whether you are doing enough to safeguard your own data, and keeping up to date with security view spoiler The Hacker underground seems very interesting in the fact that although they work together, they don t mind stealing from each other, or sinking each other Each one for himself.It seems that some of the biggest fish get all their crime charges dropped by helping the FBI in capturing even higher profile criminals In the end they even get paid for their crimes.It is also scary how a hacker can make the FBI seem like n00b5 He was always a step ahead until he got split by his partner hide spoiler All in all a worth while read Good read Gives you insight into how fragile the swipe system of credit cards is The USA was the only country left using it because the cost of changing the system his higher than the losses in fraud Thank you American banks please may I have another The US has finally moved to chip and sign Hopefully, they will move to chip and pin soon to help further protect its citizens from identity and financial theft Then again the US is still on Imperial measurements Inside look at the cybercrime underworld, specifically carders people who steal credit card information Book is really well written and hard to put down, and additionally it actually manages to cover the technical parts in enough detail to be interesting without being boring Book

inform on one Inside look at the cybercrime underworld, specifically carders people who steal credit card information Book is really well written and hard to put down, and additionally it actually manages to cover the technical parts in enough detail to be interesting without being boring Book follows the life of Max Burton and how he came to rule the carding world Interestingly, he started out with light stuff, got in trouble, and went white hat for a while But when the FBI wanted him to inform on one of his friends, he refused and got put in the slammer It was there that he turned black hat once , and once out of jail started getting into carding.It was surprising how technically inept the supposed other hackers who made up the carding population were Most were running skimming operations stealing magstripe data by literally swiping cards, usually with an inside person at a restaurant , but otherwise were not skilled at computers Max was able to easily hack those people and steal their card information before they could resell it Even the guys who were running the carding forums where all these people met were no better After Max was able to hack into some of their computers accounts, it was pretty easy for him to take over their forums as well In fact, of all the characters in the book, only a couple of people, Max included, actually sounded like they could legitimately break into other peoples computers.It was also pretty alarming how widespread this kind of crime seems There are break ins and thefts of credit card data all the time The people who buy the stolen credit card information then buy lots of goods at stores, and resell them on eBay in order to make a profit Their favorite items are things like expensive handbags and electronics basically big ticket items So now I wonder how many outrageous deals I see on Craigslist or eBay are actually just carded goods It s also sad how many break ins and thefts of credit card data happen Most of it is just due to how poorly secured most corporations are even some big ones , that once you break into their corporate network and many have BM branches that are wired into that network it s possible to steal credit card data I guess it s just insane to me that they have credit card data in the clear, stored on their network That should never happen.But it was due to poor security practices that Max was able to find most of his card data The main exploit the book details is how small restaurants like pizza places, who really can t afford to hire anyone technical, use a POS that stores credit card information accumulated during the day, and waits to transmit it all at night to the processing center The full magstripe data is stored in the clear in text files on those computers Many of them also do not delete old text files after they re no longer needed Max was able to find and break into these computers, giving him lots of fresh card information Part of the exploit detailed was a VNC vulnerability that sounds so silly it s hard to believe anyone could be so incompetent to actually have implemented it Basically, the handshake between a VNC server and client involves the server telling the client what protocols it wants, and the client picking one of those protocols to actually use However, the implementation used on most of the POS s VNC was installed to allow remote administration didn t check that the protocol the client passed back was actually on its list of accepted protocols Therefore, you could hack a client to pass back protocol 1, which requires no authentication, and the server would gladly open a password less connection One other thing from the book that stood out to me was how vulnerable client machines are to being hacked There were multiple exploits detailed in the book, mostly on old Windows software, that would allow an attacker to take control of a machine, and all that was required was that it visit a compromised webpage There are lotsdetails in the book about Max s multiple identities, different vulnerabilities, and just loadsdetail, but it d be too much to try and capture here Needless to say, this was an easy read and a really enjoyable book This was a real compulsive non stop read for me I am fascinated by computer geeky stuff to begin with However, Kevin Poulsen s writing is pretty smooth The book focuses on the exploits of ace hacker Max Vision After serving nine years in prison, Max will be getting out just before Christmas 2018, which is right around the corner Now maybe he s already out now I don t know But that was what I read in the book.My opinion is that all these hackers have pretty much destroyed the Internet, whi This was a real compulsive non stop read for me I am fascinated by computer

before Christmas 2018, which is right around the corner Now maybe he s already out now I don t know But that was what I read in the book.My opinion is that all these hackers have pretty much destroyed the Internet, which many claim to love, with their dirty deals and dirty tricks Why they think they are being so cute certainly beats me Computers and the Internet offered me a great time working on database development projects all over the US and the UK Now I build websites for fun and write books, all thanks to computers and the Internet Otherwise, I have no idea what I would have been doing Probably nothing good.This book should be a real eye opener for those who don t understand the extent to which the Internet has been corrupted Most recently, Net Neutrality has gone down the tubes Policing and use restrictions will become the future and folks will gripe and complain about that Thank a hacker What a shame and waste of talent and perseverance, just to show the world that you are a smart ass Unlike the Kingpin about Silk Road by a different author , this is the book that I can recommend.Yes, it is fictionalized, but fictionalization is not in your face, the author does not supply tons of dialogues or monologues to help build the character , and best of all book is decently sourced and comes with per chapter references.Yes, it does not go deep into technical details, but

history shelf when the primary subject of the book was born less than 10 years before me and is still 2 years away from finishing his prison sentence, but things change fast in the Internet Age, and this book is a great example of that.It s the story of a Max Butler, the kind of person that makes people use words like troubled I really did recognize an awful lot of Max s high school days from my own circle of friends I was a tame kid, but there were It s a little weird to file a book on my history shelf when the primary subject of the book was born less than 10 years before me and is still 2 years away from finishing his prison sentence, but things change fast in the Internet Age, and this book is a great example of that.It s the story of a Max Butler, the kind of person that makes people use words like troubled I really did recognize an awful lot of Max s high school days from my own circle of friends I was a tame kid, but there were definitely boys in my high school circle who exhibited Max s distinctive blend of manic intelligence and abysmal impulse control It was just oneway that reading this book felt, for lack of a better word, almost nostalgic.Kevin Poulsen didn t really ever go into this, but the rise of credit card scams and identity theft through the 1990s and into the 2000s was also, in a way, the history of the rise of the mainstream Internet Every time the story moved forward a year, I would think about the types of computers that were cutting edge that year, the Internet sites that were big that year The book even mentioned quite a lot of definitive events in the Internet Age like when Metallica s I Disappear leaked online, leading the band to sue Napster that I remembered vividly.On the other hand, there was an awful lot of information in this book that I didn t know anything about That s not a coincidence, either Poulsen mentions in passing how industry trade groups deliberately suppressed data about the extent and nature of credit card theft, pretending to the world that theft was a minor problem and relegated primarily to online shopping when in fact fraud levels were skyrocketing and were primarily a result of brick and mortar stores being hacked, not online sales getting compromised.I wouldn t say the story was exactly riveting credit card theft is not exactly high stakes, as world events go but it was definitely engrossing The constant squabbling among the various thieves and especially their territorial disputes over masculine reputation games was interesting and also kind of sad It felt, in a way, like a primatologist s field notes on a particularly quarrelsome band of chimpanzees.I guess, in the end, it was mostly just a story that I already knew too well to find really revelatory I m not an Internet security expert by any means, but I am familiar with how shockingly irresponsible most companies are when it comes to IT security, and so the news that hackers could easily use know exploits to seize control of computers around the world is not remotely surprising The problem is most people don t like their day job shocking, I know and so they only do the minimum amount required Contrast that mediocrity with the fiendish delight some hackers take in simply going where they re not supposed to be allowed, and there really is no contest Hackers dedicated, zealous, and innovative are going to win out over underpaid, bored employees any day of the week And then the rest of it the way that what we do on the Internet can become divorced from our real lives, and how our personalities can bend and morph and even detach completely from our real world personas as they stretch and distort to suit digital environs is also not shocking It s the same thing everyone who grew up at the dawn of the Internet Age learned.And so I guess that s why I m going with three stars It was moderately interesting, but the events and the personalities themselves are just not compelling or surprising or significant enough for someone already familiar with the basic subject matter Everything and everyone is basically exactly what you d expect What a book like this needs, I think, to really become something special is some kind of analysis or insight to tell us what these events mean about society, or how they tie in to geopolitical tensions between the US and Russia or China, just somethingthan a recitation of the fact that bad guys like to steal your credit cards.Max is an interesting character His white hat black hat personas are interesting, but there again not really surprising He wasn t ever a bad guy, really He was just good at rationalizing, bad at impulse control, and found a medium the Internet that s uniquely suited to dissociation Telling his story like he s the exceptional case isn t the right move, I think Telling his story as emblematic of all of us in a digital age might have been a better approach to take Because he s not unique He is who we all are, with our multiple online identities, our curated and context dependent personas, and our cyborg inner lives still too pissed off about my lost hour reviewing Hitch 22 to properly write suffice to
