    Avis de l'équipe

    "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…h as helped him become the rare blogger who supports himself on the strength of his reputation for hard-nosed reporting." ( Bloomberg Businessweek)

    Description

    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.

    Risky topic, but Br. Krebs hits it out of the park

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Not only would I recommend it to my Cyber Security Colleagues, I will and have recommended it to a number of technical & non-technical & Leadership professionals that can use the stories in Brian's book to put some context around many of the things we encounter everyday...anywhere from a DDOS attack, phishing email or stolen credit card numbers.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed the level of detail that Brian was able to provide - you can't make this stuff up! It takes a great story teller to explain the technical crud and avoid putting your audience to sleep. Brian does a good job grabbing you, let go a few times, and then loops everything back around in the end.

    Which scene was your favorite?

    I really liked That he was crazy enough to travel overseas and meet some of these people...it's not for the faint of heart, and I will bet that Brian was much more nervous than he let on.

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    unfortunately, I have a bit of a personal conection to a few chapters from the book...not with Mr. Krebs, although I have seen him at a couple industry events. My biggest reaction was more of - ahaaa, that is why this stopped happening, or "that explains a lot".

    Any additional comments?

    I did the kindle and audio versions, the audio was great, but I had to get past the Russian narratives, after a while, ey just became funny parts of the story...as They were probably meant to be.

    Surprised How Riveting a Technology Book Could Be

    Any additional comments?

    I expected a wonky technology book but found myself caught up in the drama and colorful personalities of a virtual war that impacted all of our lives, though most knew little about. I was equally impressed with the narrator's ability to to switch between accents and reflect the personalities of the subjects involved. By far one of my favorite audiobooks to date.

    Must read

    Gives a good insight in to the world of spam. I am glad but very surprised the bad guys left the author alone, considering how he exposes their operating methods.

    Write more books Brian.

    Excellent book

    I really enjoyed this book. Once you get past Brian Krebs love of himself, it's very informative. I'm a frequent visitor of his site and this book goes along with some if the things he writes about. Great listen.

    Informative read

    Even though we have good filters on our e-mail programs these days and no longer see all the spam, the author maintains it is a critical problem. Krebs claims the crooks are no longer content with standard commercial fraud, e-mail criminals infect millions of computers worldwide with toxic digital parasites, designed to extort our wealth and steal our personal data.

    Krebs states that Russia is the key spam Nation with skilled hackers and corrupt police and is now the global epicenter of cyber crime. Krebs says Visa and MasterCard are starting to successfully shut down spammers. The author says Microsoft and other such companies are becoming successful shutting down “botnets.” Krebs tells of the frightening world of cyber criminals and reveals some of the success in fighting it.

    The information is interesting but the author had problems staying focused on the main topic. The writing was jerky at times making for a difficult read but the topic was interesting enough to overcome the writing difficulties. I am glad I listened to this book rather than read it because of all the Russian names. I would not know how to pronounce them. Christopher Lane narrated the story.

    Great book, Narrator will cure your Insomnia

    What made the experience of listening to Spam Nation the most enjoyable?

    I've followed Brain Krebs since he started at the Post years ago. This book ties together some of his most groundbreaking, and engadging articles over the years and gives the reader a behind the scenes look at both his sources and methods. And the merky world of Russian origanized Cybercrime

    What did you like best about this story?

    The best thing in this book by far is the explaination of Rouge Online Phramacies. The personal stories from Amaricans who buy from pill shops advertised in spam email are both fascinating, and horrifing. If there were only one reason to reform our perscription drug system this book gives a great one

    What didn’t you like about Christopher Lane’s performance?

    I did not like Lane's perfomance at all, he drones in a monotone for hours. It detracts from Krebs' excellent writing, and almost makes the book unlistenable Except for his Russian accent which is pretty good, but even that devolves into a monotone after a few minutes

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, with lots of cofee to compinsate for Lane's utterly boring performance :)

    Worth while read

    A good read for anyone who has ever wondered why spam emails exist, why the IT department is constantly reminding you to keep your passwords secret, and who are the people who are behind the credit card scandals that seem to be popping up constantly. I learned a ton and marveled at the author’s ability to dig into this underworld, including developing a personal relationship with one of the most notorious Russian spammers in the world. The nearly word-for-word transcriptions of the weird and crazy phone calls this spammer made to the author were often very funny, almost to the point of absurdity. But most of the book is deadly serious about uncovering and explaining in lay man’s terms what spam is, why people send it, how they profit, and how you can protect yourself. Worth while read.

    [The audio book as read by Christopher Lane. He did a good job and was able to pronounce all the Russian names, which came up constantly. I listened to it at 1.25 speed, though, as it seemed a bit slow at normal speed.]

    Great book

    Great story, very insightful. Some names in Russian weren't accurately pronounced but its not a big deal.

    Who knew that Spam was so interesting

    What made the experience of listening to Spam Nation the most enjoyable?

    Great book that really digs into the spam problem and what drives those to spend so much time and effort sending spam.

    Sometimes a bit dense but well researched

    A very informative book about cybercrime. Worth the money and the time. I will certainly re-read it.
