Worm is the gripping story of the 'Conficker' virus- which, since its introduction in November 2008, has infected millions of computers around the world - and the cyber security elites who have joined forces in a high-tech game of cops and robbers to find its creators and defeat them.

This dramatic cybercrime story travels from the Ukraine to the United States (and all parts in between) to explore the next frontier in terrorism. It is the story of a dazzling battle of wits over the future of the Internet. In Worm, Mark Bowden delivers an unputdownable account of the ongoing and largely unreported war taking place literally beneath our fingertips.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Even simplified for the lay reader, the elegance and audacity of the sparring between Conficker's still unknown creators and the "white hats" who set out to thwart them is gripping. But more than that, it tells us something scary about how vulnerable the internet is, and something rather encouraging about how ingeniously and selflessly people can cooperate in its defence. * Guardian *
One of the more reader-friendly examples of recent tech journalism * Scottish Sunday Herald *
As a writer, Mark Bowden scans the horizon then points to a distant danger the rest of the world cannot yet see... he unscrews the backs of our computers and takes us on a guided tour of the internet where he reveals the chilling extent of its vulnerability. * Scotland on Sunday *
