About This Book

In Spam Nation: The Inside Story of Organized Cybercrime-from Global Epidemic to Your Front Door, security expert Brian Krebs unveils a well-hidden world that few have seen up close. Against a backdrop of the long-running turf war between two of the largest sponsors of spam, this book explains how the conditions that gave rise to this pernicious industry still remain and are grooming a new class of cybercriminals.

The book goes beyond junk email because most of the entrepreneurs building and managing large-scale spam operations are involved in virtually every aspect of cybercrime, says Krebs, including malware development, denial-of-service attacks, identity theft, credit card fraud, money laundering, commercial data breaches and extortion. Spam Nation looks at the role played by cybercrime forums that weave the social fabric of the underground while protecting scam artists from getting scammed.

Krebs is founder of the cybersecurity blog KrebsOnSecurity.com and a former reporter for the Washington Post, where he authored the Security Fix blog.
