CYBERCRIME AND THE DARKNET


CYBERCRIME AND THE DARKNET

CATH SENKER    Book Number: 84464    Product format: Paperback

Sub-titled 'Revealing the Hidden Underworld of the Internet', here's a guide that unmasks the many guises that cybercrime takes in the Digital Age. From harassment and grooming to fraud and identity theft, the anonymity provided by the Internet has created new possibilities for criminals and given birth to a subversive underground world known as the Darknet. Drug and gun trafficking, child pornography are all now simpler and profitable for enterprising criminals. The un-indexed corners of the Internet known as the Darknet offer a haven for criminals while authorities struggle to regulate this new arena. Some hackers try to use their skills for humane or political purposes. From the Wikileaks revelation to the DDOS attacks of Anonymous, groups of activists have attempted to hold authorities to account and force them into greater transparency. The same techniques can expose authoritarian regimes and provide access to affordable, life-saving medicines. We enter a cyberworld where ethical distinctions are hard to make - freedom fighters or terrorists? Here is a book about the contradictions, which is frank about the abuses. 192pp in illustrated paperback. First time discounted.
