DarkMarket

How Hackers Became the New Mafia




The essential crime book of our times, from the author of the bestselling McMafia.



Shortlisted for the Orwell Prize 2012

We live our lives online – banking, shopping, working, dating – but have we become complacent?

Who's got your money?
We share our personal details, our thoughts and movements with a faceless screen, with no real idea what lies behind it.

Who's got your identity?
DarkMarket exposes the shocking truth about what lurks behind our computers: an underground crime network that invades our privacy and threatens our security on a daily basis.

Who's got your life?
Glenny tracks down the key players – including criminals, national and international security experts, police, crack addicts, the Saudi Royal Family, and most importantly, victims – to reveal the true scale of this new global threat.
