  • Kingpin: How One Hacker Took Over the Billion Dollar Cyber Crime Underground

    by Kevin Poulsen

    Through the story of Max Butler (May Ray Vision), a brilliant young hacker turned real-life supervillain who seized sole control of a multibillion-dollar criminal network, investigative journalist Kevin Poulsen takes us on an unprecedented journey into the modern hacking underworld.

    Using a blend of cunning grifts and custom software, Max Butler stole millions from modest credit unions, financial behemoths, even fellow hackers. But his most daring feat--and his eventual undoing--came when he succeeded in crowning himself sole ruler of a worldwide computer fraud network. Over the next year, a team of FBI and Secret Service agents would single-mindedly devote themselves to hunting down this underworld's new kingpin.
