We Are All Targets: How Renegade Hackers Invented Cyber War and Unleashed an Age of Global Chaos
Matt Potter was given unauthorized access to NATO’s involvement in the unrest in Kosovo. The information he received provided a counterpoint to the mainstream narrative about NATO’s objectives and actions. He was soon visited by men from the MI5 intelligence service. He explained that the information had leaked out as a result of a trojan virus known as “Anti-Smyser-1.” As quickly as he was a target, the questions ceased.
The damage done to NATO and its allies became a state secret. As the ashes of the Cold War were just beginning to dissipate, a cyber war had begun. The locus of the new threat emanated from the former Yugoslavia, where a rebel state utilized its love of computers and sci-fi to train an army of hackers to befuddle institutions far and wide.
We Are All Targets deftly illustrates how carefully placed keystrokes can upend an organization, if not a nation. Matt Potter was given a ringside seat to the cyber carnage and he showcases the back-and-forth maneuvers performed by the hackers and their counterparts in this riveting real-life thriller. We Are All Targets is a well-written exploratory dive into an increasingly murky world.
