Geoff White’s first book, Crime Dot Com: From Viruses to Vote Rigging, How Hacking Went Global, charts the astonishing development of hacking, from its conception in the United States’ hippy tech community in the 1970s, through its childhood among the ruins of the Eastern Bloc, to its coming of age as one of the most dangerous and pervasive threats to our connected world.

Praise for Crime Dot Com:
Jon Snow, Channel 4 News
“Brilliantly written and researched, Crime Dot Com is a vivid insight into the scale of the threat to us all from crime born of and facilitated by the digital age.”
Ewen MacAskill, former chief political correspondent for the “Guardian”
“White offers up a comprehensive and intelligible account of the elusive world of hacking and cybercrime over the last two decades. He ranges from the lone hacktivist to state-sponsored surveillance, from the Love Bug to the Lazarus Group, from Snowden’s revelations to the Huawei controversy. His book is, thankfully, jargon-free, keeping a tight focus on the humans involved rather than the technology. It is lively, insightful and, often, alarming.”
Edward Lucas, author of “Deception: Spies, Lies and How Russia Dupes the West”
“White writes with insight and flair about a subject that concerns everyone—or should do. Criminals, hooligans, hostile state actors and terrorists attack our computers and networks every minute of every day. Our money, security and freedom are at risk. Yet the public is still pitifully unaware of the threats we face—and what we need to do to protect ourselves at an individual, business, and government level. Crime Dot Com
joins the dots, painting a well-informed, easy-to-understand, and up-to-date picture of the mounting dangers caused by our complacency, greed, and ignorance.”
Rory Cellan-Jones, Technology Correspondent, BBC News
“White is one of the most authoritative reporters on cybercrime and Crime Dot Com is an informative, accessible, and entertaining tour of the cyber underworld. If you want to understand everything from ransomware to nation-state attacks on key infrastructure this is an excellent primer.”
