I received this book on Netgalley in exchange for a review.

Most people have heard of cybercrime and the darknet (usually in movies) but majority of people don’t actually understand what those terms mean. This book is written for those who want to learn more about the reality of online security and privacy.

[I received a copy of this book through NetGalley.]

This book provided an introduction to part of what you can find on the "Deep Web". If you don't know anything about it, or just a few things, it will give you some starting points which you can use to then find out more.

Have you heard about Anonymous and Wikileaks? What about Bitcoin and Blockchain? Do you know what a DDoS attack is?
Sure, in this technological era, we have all heard someone mentioning one of this things. But how many of us can say that they truly understand how it works?
Well, for those of you who are interested in the subject but don't really know where to begin this is the perfect book.
If you are like me, who at the mention of "escrow" thinks "what animal is that?", this book is the perfect p

Interesting and very scary book. I finally understand a little bit more about the dark net and what happens there. I would really love to take a tour, but it seems pretty dangerous.

Libro molto interessante che mette anche paura. Finalmente ho capito qualcosa di piú della dark net e cosa ci succede e ora mi piacerebbe proprio farci un giro, ma magari evito.

THANKS TO NETGALLEY FOR THE PREVIEW!
