Cyberpunk

Outlaws and Hackers on the Computer Frontier

 A revealing window into hacker subculture, Cyberpunk profiles notorious hackers Kevin Mitnick, Robert T. Morris, and “Pengo.” International in their reach, these individual outlaws were able to penetrate sensitive computer networks and became infamous figures in the history of computer hacking. Cyberpunk is an essential cautionary tale of early computer hackers and the legacy they’ve left behind.

–Cliff Stoll, Author of The Cuckoo’s Egg

Los Angeles Times Book Review

“A fascinating inside account of the lives and exploits of these youths, who have little respect for privacy, social norms or the law.”
