Description du produit

Revue de presse

NATIONAL BESTSELLER

"Mitnick manages to make breaking computer code sound as action-packed as robbing a bank."―Rachel Syme, National Public Radio

"Ghost in the Wires reads like a contemporary über-geeky thriller.... For those interested in computer history, Ghost in the Wires is a nostalgia trip to the quaint old days before hacking (and hackers) turned so malicious and financially motivated."―J.D. Biersdorfer, New York Times Book Review

"Intriguing, insightful and extremely educational into the mind of one who truly mastered the art of social engineering with the use of a computer and modern day technologies. I strongly believe that one can learn a great deal about protecting themselves once they understand how another one perpetrates the crime."―Frank W. Abagnale, author of Catch Me if You Can

"A gripping story.... Fascinating and filled with insights."―Jesse Singal, Boston Globe

"Reads like those of Frank Abagnale Jr. and Steven Jay Russell. But Mitnick's has a high-tech twist."―Booklist (starred review)

"It's the piquant human element that really animates this rollicking memoir of high-tech skullduggery....Mitnick's hacking narratives are lucid to neophytes and catnip to people who love code, but the book's heart is his 'social engineering' - his preternatural ability to schmooze and manipulate.....[a] nonstop caper."―Publishers Weekly

"Years ago, I helped put Kevin Mitnick in jail. I now see this made about as much sense as arresting Dean Martin for public drunkenness. Neither of them could stop themselves. Neither was doing any real harm. And, in both cases, watching them struggle with their obsessions was hugely entertaining. Kevin's book is certainly that. Terse and snappy, it reads like Raymond Chandler and provides detailed insight into a time in computer history that already seems quaint. Kevin Mitnick was and is a true Internet pioneer."―John Perry Barlow, cofounder of the Electronic Frontier Foundation

Présentation de l'éditeur

Kevin Mitnick was the most elusive computer break-in artist in history. He accessed computers and networks at the world's biggest companies--and however fast the authorities were, Mitnick was faster, sprinting through phone switches, computer systems, and cellular networks. He spent years skipping through cyberspace, always three steps ahead and labeled unstoppable. But for Kevin, hacking wasn't just about technological feats-it was an old fashioned confidence game that required guile and deception to trick the unwitting out of valuable information.

Driven by a powerful urge to accomplish the impossible, Mitnick bypassed security systems and blazed into major organizations including Motorola, Sun Microsystems, and Pacific Bell. But as the FBI's net began to tighten, Kevin went on the run, engaging in an increasingly sophisticated cat and mouse game that led through false identities, a host of cities, plenty of close shaves, and an ultimate showdown with the Feds, who would stop at nothing to bring him down.

Ghost in the Wires is a thrilling true story of intrigue, suspense, and unbelievable escape, and a portrait of a visionary whose creativity, skills, and persistence forced the authorities to rethink the way they pursued him, inspiring ripples that brought permanent changes in the way people and companies protect their most sensitive information.

J'ai dévoré (assez) rapidement ce livre ! Là où les deux précédents ne sont que des recueils d'histoires courtes suivies de conseils, celui-ci lie les histoires, d'une part grâce à l'ordre chronologique (il s'agit après tout d'une autobiographie), mais aussi grâce au recul du Kevin Mitnick d'aujourd'hui, qui n'a pas peur de dire qu'à un instant ou à un autre, il a fait une erreur.

Si vous n'êtes pas technophile ou informaticien de formation, ce livre est quand même accessible : les auteurs ont pris soin d'expliquer simplement certains termes ou de simplifier certains détails, sans que cela en enlève au charme des histoires. Du coup, même si votre anglais (en particulier l'anglais technique lié aux télécommunications) est un peu rouillé, c'est un ouvrage accessible, et vous pourrez profiter d'une histoire de chasse à l'homme tout bonnement surprenante !

Cette simplification peut s'avérer frustrante dans le dernier tiers ou quart du livre pour les technophiles, si comme moi vous espériez de nombreux détails sur certains évènements. Le livre est complété par quelques photos en son milieu, qui sont assez jolies dans l'ensemble.

Livre en anglais, mais je le savais en achetant. Plutot facile à lire mis à part quelques termes techniques.

L'histoire est plutot sympa même si l'auteur fait preuve d'un égocentrisme insupportable : "tout petit déjà, j'étais plus intelligent que la moyenne"...

Côté livraison / prix / état du livre, vous pouvez y aller les yeux fermés !

I have finished this book much earlier than I expected, it definitely grabs your attention. It seems crazy that some people can go that far into the virtual world.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Nail-biter from Cover to Cover 3 avril 2016
Par Kevin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I remember the news stories, I remember the whole "Free Kevin" movement on the web, I remember reading about his release in newspapers and online magazines. It's awesome to read about these events, now, from his perspective.

I've read several of the negative comments written about this book, and I don't understand why these people read the book in the first place. They talk about not being able to sympathize, they judge Mitnick for taking advantage of people, they hate Mitnick for the way he exploited his mother and grandmother, they talk bad because they can't understand what drove Mitnick to continue to break into systems, they are irritated because of his cocky attitude. In my opinion, those reviews are more emotional than objective.

In common with the people who wrote negative reviews, I too felt bad for his mother, grandmother, friends, him, and everyone he ever used for his criminal activities. I too felt that he had plenty of opportunities to stop and get away clean. I too rolled my eyes when I read about how much smarter he was than everyone else, especially towards the end b/c it'd been ongoing throughout the book. But it's Kevin Mitnick - the social engineer hacker king - Interaction w/ people and mind-screwing most of them is expected, as is the manipulation of relationships in his favor!

My 5 stars because:
I like (auto)biographies, I am an IT professional, I enjoy narratives - this book was a perfect read for me. I could hardly put it down. It only took me a couple of weeks to read (light reading in evenings and heavier on weekends).

I was hooked from the beginning - opening word by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. The book contains a few jaw-dropping moments as Mitnick explains how he infiltrated organizations and systems. It was engaging from cover to cover - reading of how he evaded capture, how he ran counter surveillance on the FBI, how he changed identities, and a whole lot more.

You'll enjoy this book if you:
- are an IT professional
- prefer reading crime-drama novels, autobiographies, or fugitive/on-the-run type novels
- can handle a subject without hating the subjects (can you appreciate genius in a person regardless of how they use their ability?)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I Can't Put It Down 9 août 2016
Par R. Straw - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I only have a couple free hours at night, and a few hours in the weekend to read. Every moment free I've had since last week, I have spent reading. Only four days, I am on page 162. This book is one of the best I read. Oddly, Catch Me If You Can is one of my favorite movies. The book is kind of on the same lines but Kevin hacked and used social engineering for people information. Frank in the movie used social engineering for conning people and stealing. Kevin never stole from people.
This book follows Kevin from the time he was around 8, learning to pick locks. I laughed and thought, "at 8 I was playing with Barbies, what a waste of my time." Kevin Mitnick writes in a way that most people can understand and explains every term. Heck he explains how he did everything he accomplished. Ghost in the Wires is a fascinating book. If I had three full free days, I'd have it finished by now. I can't put it down.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent primer on social engineering that everyone should read 28 septembre 2016
Par M Denwiddie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I had heard of Kevin Mitnick, but this is the first time reading about his exploits. I think this book should be required reading for anyone who works in help desk or other technology; heck, I worked in a hospital, and I think all of the staff should have been reading it too. In addition to the interesting technology he introduces us to, it gives a great view of social engineering and how easy it was for him to get what he wanted.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 This book is pretty good. It somewhat overly glorifies Mitnick 10 novembre 2016
Par DJ Mermaid - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This book is pretty good. It somewhat overly glorifies Mitnick, but is essentially factual. I worked at The Well when this was all going down! Most of us in the office thought the FBI peeps were hired security consultants. LOL. It does get it a bit wrong about how he was detected. It wasn't the tech department. It was the head of Community, who was checking out comped accounts with excessive disk usage. (Back then, disk space wasn't cheap!) She saw files which were filled with CC info, alerted tech, and they went after him. And got him.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Hacked! 21 février 2014
Par Andy in Washington - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Ghost in the Wires is the story of Kevin Mitnick, self proclaimed computer hacker. Mitnick takes us through most of his hacking career, and also explores some of his personal and family relationships and conflicts during his career.

=== The Good Stuff ===

* Mitnick writes very well, and the book moves quickly. I ended up reading it in a single evening, and was actually sad when it came to the end.

* While the book describes some of the technical details of his exploits, anyone with even an inkling of how computers work will have no trouble understanding 95% of what happens in the book. Most of his more interesting exploits seem to be of the "social engineering" variety, namely talking people into doing him "favors" which compromise their own security.

* Mitnick is reasonable, for the most part, about his exploits. He admits to his exploits, and at least claims remorse for the trouble his hacking caused for his family.

* The book includes his attempts to flee law enforcement, including fleeing to different states and attempting to set up new identities for himself. It was quite interesting to hear the things that he found easy versus the things that caused him difficulties in his attempts to establish his new credentials.

=== The Not-So-Good Stuff ===

* By definition, Mitnick is the only source for much of the material in this book. It is therefore difficult to judge just how accurate a picture of his exploits he presents, and I got the feeling he carefully screened which parts of his biography he included. I am an engineer, and much of his discussion at least passed the "sniff" test for being at least plausible.

* The end of the book becomes somewhat self-serving. Mitnick claims to not understand why large companies would put very high values on some of the intellectual property he "just borrowed". I thought he was just being naive, until you realize that he now makes an excellent income because those companies are willing to pay him money to protect those very same assets. Clearly he has some understanding of their value.

=== Summary ===

I enjoyed the book, and enjoyed reading it. While some of the exploits seemed to stretch what I was wiling to believe, it almost doesn't matter. The book was an enjoyable and fun read whether it was fiction or not.

One thing that did stick out was that some of Mitnick's greatest successes were not done at a computer, but rather with a telephone talking some lowly employee into bypassing carefully developed security procedures.

Finally, I can't help but wonder with the billions we have spent on "security" since 2001, how many of Mitnick's exploits would still work today. I have the awful feeling that I don't really want to know.
