As a business owner with dedicated servers, I learned how complacent I have been. This was a huge eye opener to do everything possible to make sure my home network and my business LINUX and Windows are now far more SECURE!
Russinovich is eloquent, colorful, multidimensional, riveting and a master at pitting our ego's infinite potential to pursue altruism or greed; selflessness or selfishness. He is clearly an expert in technology, or he is very adept at turning research into nail biting sequitur bullsh-t. It must be both; no one can convincingly know that much about the inner workings of so many industries!
Either way, I can't wait for Mark's next book. His genre and personal style is a playful way to eclectically learn a little-about-a-lot. To the level that I can at times, pragmatically apply what I've learned to my own life; which I've done thanks to Russinovich.
Russinovich, as before, is able to cast a detailed vision of the malware ecosystem into a gripping and thrilling tale. There's enough suspense to keep you reading, and enough twists and turns to keep you guessing.
And he gets it right. Since publication just a few weeks ago, the newspapers are already revealing the same kind of intrigue between Iran and China that Russinovich wrote about. Which leads me to this: either Russinovich took a ride on a time machine, or he did a great job at projecting. My bet is on the former: he's clever enough to have invented one, and wise enough to keep it secret from us mere mortals.
Bravo, Mark! I'm looking forward to #3.
The characters are well developed, though I would prefer that Jeff and Daryl come across as a little more human than they are. Ordinary people doing extraordinary things I find to be more interesting than extraordinary people with some baggage doing extraordinary things.
I recommend this book - it's expertly crafted and a very good read.
Trojan Horse did not seem to rely as much on the reader's technical knowledge. For those into the cyber-security of SCADA control systems, you'll likely wish there'd been more technical details of the vulnerabilities. Never-the-less, this worth reading. If I had not read Zero Day first, there would be no basis for comparison. So if you haven't read Zero Day, read Trojan Horse first.
