A white-collar true-crime story, "Zero Day Threat" is a powerful investigative expose on bank and lending policies that actually facilitate ID theft and fraud. "USA Today" reporters Acohido and Swartz reveal the many ways that established corporations and technology giants (including Bank of America, Microsoft, and Google) have fixated on the Internet to maximise their profits, heedless of increased risks to customers. While examining the exploding range of hidden Internet hazards, they reveal the ways in which cyber-crooks nab identity data such as Dumpster diving for bountiful paper trash that offers account user names, passwords and then exploit that information through channels opened up by careless corporate policies. "Zero Day Threat" exposes how lawbreakers do their dirty work, and how corporations help them do it.
