    Description

    Before the internet became widely known as a global tool for terrorists, one perceptive US citizen recognized its ominous potential. Armed with clear evidence of computer espionage, he began a highly personal quest to expose a hidden network of spies that threatened national security. But would the authorities back him up? Cliff Stoll's dramatic firsthand account is "a computer-age detective story, instantly fascinating [and] astonishingly gripping" - Smithsonian.

    Cliff Stoll was an astronomer turned systems manager at Lawrence Berkeley Lab when a 75 cent accounting error alerted him to the presence of an unauthorized user on his system. The hacker's code name was "Hunter" - a mysterious invader who managed to break into US computer systems and steal sensitive military and security information. Stoll began a one-man hunt of his own: spying on the spy. It was a dangerous game of deception, broken codes, satellites, and missile bases - a one-man sting operation that finally gained the attention of the CIA...and ultimately trapped an international spy ring fueled by cash, cocaine, and the KGB.

    Génial

    L'histoire est fabuleuse, son écriture est limpide, les détails techniques liés au monde unix et de la naissance des réseaux rendent se livre sacré et que dire du narrateur qui a su trouvé la juste tonalité pour mimer chacun des personnages. En bref ce bouquin est magistral !

    My favorite non-fiction book!

    Love this book! Gripping story about the glory days of computing, and cold war spies. I have a physical copy of it which is warn to shreds. Very glad to have the audio version now.

    A story that stands the test of time

    This book was written 30 years ago, but doesn't come across as dated or otherwise irrelevant. While the technology has changed, the story is still impactful today. My only criticism of the book was that it was sprinkled with a bit of TMI with regard to the author's personal life and politics that didn't really need to be in the book.

    The narration was terrific, with one annoying exception. The narrator tried to use a British accent for the UK based person but it was horribly inconsistent and even seemed to become a German accent when the British person was talking ABOUT Germany. Weird.

    Overall, a great listen.

    Hacking History Lesson

    The Cuckoo's Egg has long been acknowledged as mandatory reading for anyone interested in cybersecurity, especially those on the technical side of the field. It is shocking how relevant this book is still today, 30+ years after the event. Spoiler alert - the core weaknesses in computer security that were discussed and/or exposed in 1986/87 and documented in this book largely still exist.

    Having read the book and enjoyed it so much, I was excited to see it released as an audiobook. The audiobook version is better than I had hoped. Even though I know what is about to happen, I find myself riveted and planning my time to listen to the next chapter. If you are familiar with Unix and have been involved in IT and computer security for a while, especially if you have ever worked in the US government, you will find yourself involuntary nodding and remembering that time when something similar happened to you.

    A Fascinating (Niche) Story

    This book is a fascinating story if you're interested in computer security. The narration is very well done and I think conveys the book well. I really enjoyed the writing and all the anecdotes from Stoll's life as well. I doubt the book would be much interest to the layman however. It is very technical. A huge plus for me, but fair warning to others.

    Cannot put this thing down!

    So glad this finally came out in audiobook format. It is one of the best books written on computer hacking out there.

    Very Interesting

    This story was really well documented which provides a very well written book with a lot of details.
    Coming myself from a background in astronomy and infosec this book checked all the boxes for me.

    Highly recommended!

    A classic!

    Thank you Will Damron for narrating this classic book on computer security. I was alive during this era of the mid-1980s, and I can clearly track the story of how vulnerable our computers were to this kind of interference. Great story, well told.

    An older book but still worth a read.

    An older book, but still worth the read. Gives great insight on how vulnerable networks can become if not properly protected.

    A story 35 years old but...

    A story 35 years old, but events just like it take place even today! Very interesting story on the early days of cyber security. A simpler time. I am glad Cliff got this book made in an audio book format.
