A Big Hacking Arrest

I wrote a quick WIRED story today about the arrest in Spain over the weekend of one of the world’s top spammers. The operation, which also involved the take-down of the Kelihos botnet—one of the world’s longest-running and most nefarious networks of infected computers—was done, in part, by the same team I wrote about for my cover story in this month’s WIRED about the hunt for the hacker behind Gam

Watergate by Garrett M. Graff
"It’s a minutely detailed history, which gets to be heavy slogging from the middle up until the last chapter, but it does adds important understanding to our current dilemma. "
Watergate by Garrett M. Graff
"When my wife found out I was reading this book, she asked a very pertinent question: “Is there anything about Watergate that we don’t already know?” I would have thought there wasn’t. After all, I’m about as much a “Watergate expert” as most people i" Read more of this review »
Watergate by Garrett M. Graff
"I followed Watergate closely when it happened, but after 50years, I'll confess I've lost some of the detail. Garrett Graff's new book does an excellent and well-researched job of capturing all that I've forgotten, and a lot that I never knew. He plac" Read more of this review »
Watergate by Garrett M. Graff
"I think I tend to give books that deal with politics good reviews because of the sheer work that is involved with putting together this lengthy a book, with so many competitors clamoring for a attention.

Quotes by Garrett M. Graff  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Father Mychal Judge, chaplain, FDNY: Good days. And bad days. Up days. Down days. Sad days. Happy days. But never a boring day on this job. You do what God has called you to do. You show up. You put one foot in front of another. You get on the rig and you go out and you do the job. Which is a mystery. And a surprise. You have no idea when you get on that rig. No matter how big the call. No matter how small. You have no idea what God is calling you to. But he needs you. He needs me. He needs all of us.”
Garrett M. Graff, The Only Plane in the Sky: An Oral History of 9/11

“We met when we were only 16, at a high school dance. When he died, we were 50. I remember how I didn't want that day to end, terrible as it was. I didn't want to go to sleep because as long as I was awake, it was still a day that I shared with Sean. ~Beverly Eckert”
Garrett M. Graff, The Only Plane in the Sky: An Oral History of 9/11

“We took the time to shake each other’s hands and wish each other good luck and “Hope I’ll see you later,” which is especially poignant for me because we all had that acknowledgment that this might be our last day on earth and we went to work anyway.”
Garrett M. Graff, The Only Plane in the Sky: An Oral History of 9/11
