Clifford Stoll enthusiastically discussed his discovery and tracking

of a West German computer spy who “broke” into his institution’s

computer network to access other networks throughout the U.S. In

[The Cuckoo’s Egg: Tracking a Spy Through the Maze of Computer

Espionage], Stoll details the story involving Markus Hess, who sold

the stolen information from U.S. military networks to the Soviet

Union before being caught and eventually indicted.

Stoll’s animated personality adds to the discussion of his background

and views on computer crime. Between yo-yo tricks and sharing a

favorite cookie recipe, he tells his experience of giving

congressional testimony and of working with federal agents to track

the spy. Now an expert in computer security, Stoll has spoken to many

government agencies, universities and other organizations on the

subject. close
