At Large: the Strange Case of the World's Biggest Internet Invasion
by David H. Freedman, Charles C. Mann

Perhaps the scariest story of insufficient computer security and cybercrime yet is the true tale of Phantom Dialer. He accessed university and military research centers, banks, even the computers that controlled central California's dams. His actions could have put tens of thousands of lives at risk. And what makes it so frightening is that he was not a criminal or computing genius. He was a curious, persistent, and mentally-challenged young man who never truly understood his own actions. So if he could do that, what might a determined terrorist do? Because, as Charles Mann and David Freedman show, advances in the Internet have been making it easier, not harder, for security crackers to go where they're not wanted. The book reads like a techno-thriller--from the discovery of a small cyberbreak-in to the massive manhunt that tracked him down and the troubled birth of the FBI's computer crime squad--complete with all the humor and poignancies of real human events.

At Large is an amazingly granular book that will appeal to computer junkies everywhere, but may not serve as the public rallying cry it wants to be. The story centers on the exploits of a young hacker known as both phantomd and Infomaster and the terror he inflicts on computer systems worldwide.

The essential question raised by Freedman and Mann is: if phantomd, who is both physically and mentally handicapped, can penetrate into university, corporation, and military systems through sheer tenacity, what will stop the legions of better-equipped, more intelligent cybercriminals from doing far worse? Their conclusion is not pretty.

Each chapter is peppered with plenty of juicy, foreboding quotes from security professionals, industry insiders, and government officials prophesizing the next wave of computer crime and terrorism. The estimations of Internet security are right on the money though. The technical writing is superb, clear, and precise. Anyone could pick this book up and understand the exploits of the hackers and their larger ramifications, but the thorough descriptions and numerous footnotes eventually slow the story's pace down. This is a shame as the ending is worth reaching.
