Cult of the Dead Cow: How the Original Hacking Supergroup Might Just Save the World based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Good enough, but in the beginning it's a mini 'love letter' to Beto O'Rourke (who was part of cDc, a phone 'phreaker'). Also, i must disagree with the writer blindly pushing the "Russians hacked the DNC" meme where there's evidence that points to someone with physical access to a system on-site copying the data to a USB thumb drive. (The Nation, on August 9, 2017, wrote about this: "A New Report Raises Big Questions About last Year's DNC Hack"). the author loves pushing the idea that the Russians were doing things to help Trump, even though the book itself admits the Russians had personal reasons to screw Hillary Clinton over, which is a little different. With that adidet, the book is interesting and provides a coherent history of the cDc, where the members went, how they improved global security (or bent the rules in a bad way), etc. This makes the book useful.
