Mark Bowden: The 'Worm' & Digital Warfare
When the Conficker computer "worm" was unleashed in November 2008, cyber-security experts didn't know what to make of it. But as it grew, infecting millions of computers within weeks, a dazzling battle over the future of the Internet emerged, awakening the U.S. government to the urgent nature of the threat. Mark Bowden, author of Black Hawk Down and the new Worm, explores the evil worm and computer security, explaining why (and how) cyberspace is the next frontier in war. Presented by The Town Hall Center for Civic Life, with University Book Store. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola. Series supported by The Boeing Company Charitable Trust and the RealNetworks Foundation.
