We Are Anonymous: Inside the Hacker World of LulzSec Anonymous

We Are Anonymous: Inside the Hacker World of LulzSec Anonymous - Parmy Olson, Abby Craden More a story of LulzSec as an outgrowth of Anonymous, this book is just one perspective on what makes hacker groups tick. Parmy Olson also depicts how helpless the authorities are, and how hapless the press is, which someone contradicts the veracity of this book.

Regardless, once authority gets a clue, the reach of the long arm of the law is sinister, and the story finishes in a moral landscape as grey and barren

This book is a pleasure to read as someone who stood on the sidelines of the Anonymous and LulzSec hacks, reading about their antics on Twitter and the MSM. It is an excellent historical account of recent events for web aficionados like myself. However, I would encourage a wider audience, as it reminds us that in the times of corporate cooperation with government regarding our personal information on the web (ie. PRISM), our information could just as easily be outed by roving anarchist hacker groups wanting to try out their lastest SQLI tricks.
