Hacks, Leaks, and Revelations (No Starch Press)
Friday, 12 January 2024

Subtitled "The Art of Analyzing Hacked and Leaked Data", this  hands-on guide blends real-world techniques for researching large datasets with lessons on coding, data authentication, and digital security. Micah Lee spices all of this up with stories from the front lines of investigative journalism, and looks into exposed datasets from a wide array of sources: the FBI, the DHS, police intelligence agencies, extremist groups like the Oath Keepers, and even a Russian ransomware gang.
