Malicious Life tells the unknown and forgotten tales of the pioneers of the cybersecurity industry, and the criminals that shaped it in its earliest days -- from the very first virus, to the ransomware attacks of 2017. Now more than ever, as massive ransomware attacks paralyze public services, corporations, and governments, it is important and thrilling to discover the history of malicious attacks, which appeared first in the 1970s and 1980s, and have increased exponentially ever since.
