The secret history of cyber war

Hosted by

When President Ronald Reagan was relaxing at Camp David in 1983, he happened to see the film War Games, starring the young Mathew Broderick as a "tech-whiz teenager" who thinks he's playing a computer game. It turns out that the kid has unwittingly hacked into America's real-world defense system, and he almost starts World War III. President Reagan's reaction to that film begins the book, Dark Territory: The Secret History of Cyber War, by Pulitzer-Prize winning reporter and author Fred Kaplan, who's currently national security correspondent for Slate
