In DarkMarket: CyberThieves, CyberCops and You, Misha Glenny plunged into the murky depths of the world's most notorious carder fraud site, DarkMarket. In this exclusive short eBook, he takes you even deeper into that world.
In the realm of the cyberthief, your best friend can be your worst enemy, or worse still, undercover law enforcement. DarkerMarket follows the trail of the most elusive cyberthief of all, Lord Cyric. In doing so, Glenny unveils some of his investigative methods, explores new lines of inquiry and tries to untangle the web at the black heart of the internet. A specially written adjunct to DarkMarket, this ebook delves further into the most compelling crime story of the year.
In this powerful account, Misha Glenny takes us on a journey through the new world of international organised crime. He has travelled throughout the world - from Japan to China to Brazil to the USA and has spoken to countless gangsters, policemen and victims of organised crime while also exploring the ferocious consumer demand for drugs, trafficked women, illegal labour and arms across five continents.
McMafia Brain Shot focuses on cybercrime in Brazil and people trafficking from China to Brazil, the UK and Europe and unpicks the nexus of crime, politics and money worldwide which have become entangled and interdependent in entirely novel forms since the 1980s. It argues that conventional policing methods are no longer appropriate to deal with a problem whose roots lie in global poverty and the ever widening divisions between rich and poor.
BRAIN SHOTS: The byte-sized account of international crime and globalisation's dark side
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.
