The Changing And Terrifying Nature Of The New Cyber-Warfare

Silent War

On the hidden battlefields of history’s first known cyber-war, the casualties are piling up.

With the help of highly placed government and private-sector sources, Michael Joseph Gross describes the outbreak of the conflict, its escalation, and its startling paradox: that America’s bid to stop nuclear proliferation may have unleashed a greater threat.
