About the book
Sooner or later, a hacker shows up in almost every Netflix series. Then, a series of numbers and letters flash across the screen before voilà – the secret code for turning off the security cameras appears. But what do hackers actually do? And, how do they do it?
Journalist Gerard Janssen discovered that they do not share their secrets with just anyone. But if you want to learn the art of hacking yourself, hackers are always willing to help. Janssen penetrated the hackers’ closed universe and discovered a rich subculture, a close-knit activist community with a common aim: to maintain an open, free and secure Internet. Hackers is an intriguing and exciting book – about female hackers, the vulnerability of election results, and how three Dutch hackers managed to hijack Trump’s Twitter account.
