Description

We have created the ultimate hive-mind robot: an Internet of interconnected devices that senses, thinks and acts. Bruce Schneier calls it the "World-Sized Web". It includes everything from driverless cars to smart thermostats, from billboards that respond to specific people to drones equipped with their own behavioural algorithms. While the World-Sized Web carries enormous potential, Schneier argues that we are unprepared for the vulnerabilities it brings. Cutting-edge digital attackers can now crash your car, pacemaker and home security system and everyone else's.

Click Here to Kill Everybody explores the risks and security implications of the World-Sized Web and lays out common-sense policies that will allow us to enjoy the benefits of this new omnipotent age without surrendering ourselves entirely to our creation.

Review Text

"Hochinteressant ist Schneiers Buch vor allem deshalb, weil es über die kenntnisreiche Darstellung der prekären Sicherheitslage hinaus auf Lösungen zielt und konkrete Vorschläge macht." (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, 11.09.2019)

"Das Buch ist sowohl für Anfängerinnen als auch Fortgeschrittene geeignet. Selbst nicht allzu IT-affinen Menschen sollte die Lektüre relativ leicht fallen, werden doch alle Begriffe und deren Zusammenhänge gut erklärt, ohne zu sehr in die technische Tiefe abzudriften." (Infotechnica.de, 09/2019)

"Damit dürfte Schneier bei den meisten [IT-affinen] Lesern offene Türen einrennen. Doch finden ich im Text auch für erfahrene User so manche interessante Hintergründe und Beispiele." (IT Administrator Magazin, 08/2019)

"Mit den ersten Kapiteln öffnet Bruce Schneier vor den Augen des Lesers die Büchse der Pandora und beschreibt eindrücklich die vielfältigen Risiken in unserer Welt, die überall und immer mehr von Computern durchdrungen wird." (Linux Magazin, 08/2019)

Review quote

"Schneier skilfully guides readers through serious attacks that have happened already - and moves on to those he believes are just over the horizon... This book is convincing, but not comforting." -- Financial Times "Schneier's book 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 "... excellent work..." -- The Catholic Herald
