This is the true story of how a systems manager at Lawrence Berkeley Lab singlehandedly tracked down and helped capture a computer hacker who had been breaking into U.S. computer systems and stealing sensitive military and security information. 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 mystery invader hiding inside a twisting electronic labyrinth, breaking into U.S. computer systems and stealing sensitive military and security information. Stoll began a one-man hunt of his own, spying on the spy -- and plunged into an incredible international probe that finally gained the attention of top U.S. counterintelligence agents. The Cuckoo's Egg is his wild and suspenseful true story -- a year of deception, broken codes, satellites, missile bases, and the ultimate sting operation -- and how one ingenious American trapped a spy ring paid in cash and cocaine, and reporting to the KGB.… (más)

It's a fun little foray into tracking spies. The Cuckoo's Egg is enough to satisfy your inner Tom Clancy, without delving into dumb action schlock. It's not a book that's going to stick with you, but it's an enjoyable read. ( )

Accessible to the layman and engaging as hell, Stoll's journey in tracing a hacker - maybe some script kiddie? - all the way into Europe and beyond is a wonderful read. The ex-hippie shtick wears a bit thin in some places, but his personal transformation is made clearer by the epilogue. And in some ways he is just as much a novice to computer security as an average person reading this. A trip through unix and VAX systems, GNU-emacs holes and root/admin passwords, this is a great introduction to what "hacking" - and classification by aggregation - have always been about. ( )

A fascinating account of his persistence in tracking down a $0.75 accounting error despite indifference from all his superiors and associates. Then when it turned out to be a hacker also hacking into government computer, he encountered that same indifference at all levels. ( )

A fun read and a great history lesson for computer nerds like me. ( )

It's been years since I read this. A friend posted a chocolate chip cookie recipe, which, naturally, brought this book straight to mind. Why you might ask? It has a truly excellent chocolate chip cookie recipe in it, which I've had the pleasure to make.

Without giving the plot away, this is an excellent romp through some early hacking and counter hacking ideas and techniques. A must read if you ever use a computer. ( )
