Preface

Preface

A night-shift security guard at a hospital plants malware1 on the hospital’s computers. The malware could have brought down the heating, ventilation, and cooling systems and ultimately cost lives. Fortunately, he has posted a video of his crime on YouTube and is caught before carrying out his illicit intent.

1. Malware: code intended to execute a malicious function; also commonly referred to as malicious code. [Note: The first time any word from the Glossary is used in the book it will be printed in boldface.]

A programmer quits his job at a nuclear power plant in the United States and returns to his home country of Iran with simulation software containing schematics and other engineering information for the power plant.

A group of employees at a Department of Motor Vehicles work together to make some extra money by creating driver’s licenses for undocumented immigrants and others who could not legally get a license. They are finally arrested after creating a license for an undercover agent who claimed to be on the “No Fly List.”
