" The Kucoo's Egg " written by Clifford Stall is a book about a Unix
admin tracking down a hacker that was brakeing in to his computer along
with other goverment computers. Its a very good book. " Take Down " is
another grate book. It was written by Tsutomu Shimomura about how he
tracked down Kevin Mitnick,  "America's Most Wanted Computer Outlaw,"
They even have a web page that you can visit As
for a little history web page was hacked the 1st day it
was online. The hackers rename it to " Taken Down "
 " The Watchman ", written by Jonathan Littman is a book about the life
story of Hacker Kevin Poulsen. These are all grate books to read and are
all true storys.
