Review:

Things can go wrong in cyberspace. There's fraud, stalking, viruses, outright theft, and more. And while the online world is still not nearly as dangerous as the physical realm, it pays to take precautions against victimization. To that end, Laura Quarantiello offers a detailed look at what's happening in the world of computer crime, complete with insights into the minds of the perpetrators--from the mischievous to the malicious. Her stories include both the disturbing and the heartening, and the advice she's collected--from "cybercops" and "cybercriminals" alike, is well worth heeding.

From the Publisher:

Welcome to the dark side of cyberspace! Here is a Cook's tour of online crime, with sound, practical advice (some of it from the hackers themselves!) which you can put to immediate use. Cyber Crime is everybody's quick 'n easy guide to safeguarding home and business computers and keeping clear of the online bad guys. Covers phreakers, hackers, viruses, harassment, data diddling, stalking, fraud, pornography, pedophiles, e-mail security, privacy.
