    In late 2010, thousands of hacktivists joined a mass digital assault by Anonymous on the websites of VISA, MasterCard, and PayPal to protest their treatment of WikiLeaks. Splinter groups then infiltrated the networks of totalitarian governments in Libya and Tunisia, and an elite team of six people calling themselves LulzSec attacked the FBI, CIA, and Sony. They were flippant and taunting, grabbed headlines, and amassed more than a quarter of a million Twitter followers.

    If you could sum up We Are Anonymous in three words, what would they be?

    Hackers gotta hack!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of We Are Anonymous?

    The most memorable was really the opening scene. I was horrified but laughing inside at how easily the hackers took down a 'cyber security' firm's website, defaced the site, abused the CEO's twitter account and published its emails.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    If nothing else, I have learned why there are warnings to change your password frequently, use different passwords on different accounts, and to use phrases with upper case, lower case, numbers, and symbols. It was quite eye opening that the groups published lists of user names and passwords.


    Any additional comments?

    The book was engaging and felt like a quick listen up until the last hour or so. I enjoyed the walk through cyber history and how the culture evolved and morphed over time.
    A synopsis of the stories would be a valuable listen for any company who wants to really get the point across to their employees that cyber security is important.
