The Cuckoo's Egg
Jump to user comments
A great book (and subsequent BBC TV series) telling the true
story of Clifford Stoll, an astronomy professor at UCB's
Lawrence Berkeley Lab. A 75-cent accounting error alerted
him to the presence of an unauthorised user (a cracker) on
his system. The cracker, code named "Hunter", was breaking
into US computer systems and stealing sensitive military and
security information. Hunter was part of a spy ring paid in
cash and cocaine, and reporting to the KGB.
