We've comprehensively compiled reviews of Worm from the world's leading experts.

Josephine Wolff Worm is about the Conficker worm, which was one of the earlier very, very effective pieces of malware used to build an enormous bot. Mark Bowden goes in and looks at who the people are trying to stop it. It’s one of the first books that gave me a feel for, ‘Oh, this is what it means when they say attacking is easier than defending.’ The defensive efforts were well-coordinated and reasonably well resourced, but Conficker was very hard to get a handle on.
