In 2015, Russian hackers tunneled deep into the computer systems of the Democratic National Committee, and the subsequent leaks of the emails they stole may have changed the course of American democracy. But to see the DNC hacks as Trump-centric is to miss the bigger, more important story: Within that same year, the Russians not only had broken into networks at the White House, the State Department, and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, but had placed implants in American electrical and nuclear plants that could give them the power to switch off vast swaths of the country. This was the culmination of a decade of escalating digital sabotage among the world’s powers, in which Americans became the collateral damage as China, Iran, North Korea, and Russia battled in cyberspace to undercut one another in daily just-short-of-war conflict.
The Perfect Weapon
is the startling inside story of how the rise of cyberweapons
transformed geopolitics like nothing since the invention of the atomic
bomb. Cheap to acquire, easy to deny, and usable for a variety of
malicious purposes—from crippling infrastructure to sowing discord and
doubt—cyber is now the weapon of choice for democracies, dictators, and
terrorists. Two presidents—Bush and Obama—drew first blood with
Operation Olympic Games, which used malicious code to blow up Iran’s
nuclear centrifuges, and yet America proved remarkably unprepared when
its own weapons were stolen from its arsenal and, during President
Trump’s first year, turned back on the US and its allies. The government
was often paralyzed, unable to threaten the use of cyberweapons because
America was so vulnerable to crippling attacks on its own networks of
banks, utilities, and government agencies.
Moving from the White House Situation Room to the dens of Chinese government hackers to the boardrooms of Silicon Valley, New York Times
national security correspondent David Sanger—who broke the story of
Olympic Games in his previous book—reveals a world coming face-to-face
with the perils of technological revolution. The Perfect Weapon is
the dramatic story of how great and small powers alike slipped into a
new era of constant sabotage, misinformation, and fear, in which
everyone is a target.
