Now a New York Times bestseller!

Winner of a 2015 Prose Award!

There is a Threat Lurking Online with the Power to Destroy Your Finances, Steal Your Personal Data, and Endanger Your Life.

In Spam Nation, investigative journalist and cybersecurity expert Brian Krebs unmasks the criminal masterminds driving some of the biggest spam and hacker operations targeting Americans and their bank accounts. Tracing the rise, fall, and alarming resurrection of the digital mafia behind the two largest spam pharmacies-and countless viruses, phishing, and spyware attacks-he delivers the first definitive narrative of the global spam problem and its threat to consumers everywhere.

Blending cutting-edge research, investigative reporting, and firsthand interviews, this terrifying true story reveals how we unwittingly invite these digital thieves into our lives every day. From unassuming computer programmers right next door to digital mobsters like "Cosma"-who unleashed a massive malware attack that has stolen thousands of Americans' logins and passwords-Krebs uncovers the shocking lengths to which these people will go to profit from our data and our wallets.

Not only are hundreds of thousands of Americans exposing themselves to fraud and dangerously toxic products from rogue online pharmacies, but even those who never open junk messages are at risk. As Krebs notes, spammers can-and do-hack into accounts through these emails, harvest personal information like usernames and passwords, and sell them on the digital black market. The fallout from this global epidemic doesn't just cost consumers and companies billions, it costs lives too.

Fast-paced and utterly gripping, Spam Nation ultimately proposes concrete solutions for protecting ourselves online and stemming this tidal wave of cybercrime-before it's too late.

"Krebs's talent for exposing the weaknesses in online security has earned him respect in the IT business and loathing among cybercriminals... His track record of scoops...has helped him become the rare blogger who supports himself on the strength of his reputation for hard-nosed reporting." -Bloomberg Businessweek

Not really my sort of reading, but gives a good picture of crime based on the Internet and towards the end some guidance on how to protect your information.

A bit old but it provides a lot of interesting and useful information. Online security becomes more important by the day. Real insights into so called Canadian pharmacies. It ends with some practical advice about staying safe online. ( )

Really interesting first-hand info about how Russian spam affiliate programs work(ed). Interesting to learn that the downfall of the spam industry was basically due to a rivalry/war, followed by dox being dropped. Unfortunately ended right as all the really interesting new stuff (cryptolockers, etc.) became popular.

I had no idea most of the pharmaceuticals promoted via spam were basically good drugs, and how businesslike these programs were.

I've always found the economy behind spam kind of interesting, and this book does an interesting job at shedding light on how spam works, both in terms of who's doing it and how, and also in terms of who is buying and why. ( )
