Book Description | Author's Comment

A fictional case of computer fraud in the 1980s. Systems programmer Lester wants more variety in his job. To raise his profile, he plans to pull off a simulated fraud and finds to his amazement how easy it is to collect a few million dollars. So why give the money back? However, disposing of the loot is not so simple and Lester has no idea how deep he is in diabolical trouble. In the heyday of large mainframes, security was pioneering at best, software technologists often worked almost uncontrolled and barely controllable. The plot weaves in a dozen “horror stories” from insiders about management assumptions and shoddy practices in computer centres of the time.
