Hello IT Pro, 

What do we have for you this week? Quite a bit, so let’s get to it. As normal, unless we state otherwise, we’re not affiliated with any of the brands below.

The Cuckoo’s Egg: Tracking a Spy Through the Maze of Computer Espionage

007 and Jason Bourne make for great viewing on TV. In reality, though, the spy world is very different. This book is the story of a man who saw the potential of the internet to act as a communication tool for spies and terrorists. An astronomer by trade, he takes the reader on his fascinating journey to take down a KGB ring and a whole lot more. This occurred during the 80s, so the tech is older. Unix sysadmins who’ve been in the industry for a while, though, will recognize it.
