Reviews:

“Useful for an internet user but particularly for those concerned with privacy, civil liberties, and related issues.”

Kirkus Reviews

“Schneier skilfully guides readers through serious attacks that have happened already—and moves on to those he believes are just over the horizon.… Schneier sets out detailed solutions that should be required reading for politicians across the world.”

Financial Times

“Schneier, more than the average policymaker or marketing blowhard, has a pretty good idea of what the actual benefits of these systems can be. He avoids the twin temptations of wholesale dismissal and breathless hype, and charts a course that manages the tricky business of being both nuanced and exciting.”

Cory Doctorow , BoingBoing.net

[Click Here to Kill Everybody] is sober, lucid and often wise in diagnosing how the security challenges posed by the expanding Internet came about, and in proposing what should (but probably won’t) be done about them.”

Nature

“This thought-provoking book will mainly have you nodding in agreement and shaking your head in frustration. The future is not yet written, and so prediction, like attribution, is hard. Hopefully, enough people will read the book to change the path of the future. I plan to re-read it, and there can be no greater praise.”

Paul Baccas , Virus Bulletin


Description:

The Internet is powerful, but it is not safe.

As “smart” devices proliferate the risks will get worse, unless we act now.

From driverless cars to smart thermostats, from autonomous stock-trading systems to drones equipped with their own behavioral algorithms, the Internet now has direct effects on the physical world. Forget data theft: cutting-edge digital attackers can now literally crash your car, pacemaker, and home security system, as well as everyone else’s.

In Click Here to Kill Everybody, best-selling author Bruce Schneier explores the risks and security implications of our new, hyper-connected era, and lays out common-sense policies that will allow us to enjoy the benefits of this omnipotent age without falling prey to the consequences of its insecurity.
