Countdown to Zero Day: Stuxnet and the Launch of the World's First Digital Weapon by Kim Zetter
Published in September 2015
Thibault's Score: 4/5
In 2009, a computer virus struck Iranian nuclear centrifuges, and led them to self destruct. For the first time in human history, lines of code had caused physical damage. Stuxnet marks the begining of a new modern era of cyberwarfare that has deep reaching consequances far beyond stolen data.
Kim Zetter masterfully guides readers through the new dark world of cyber warfare. Reading this book is very important for anyone who is interested in understanding the future of geopolitics.
This book is incredibly entertaining and educational, I strongly recommend it.
Most of my articles are book reviews, but I also write about many other topics.
