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 paralysed 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.
