How I discovered it?

It’s no secret that there are companies building cyber weapons that are then used by governments and three-letter agencies around the world to spy on the people, including their own citizens. One of these companies was the Hacking Team which got, well, hacked and all of their tools and emails were exposed to the public. The person(s) behind it was Phineas Phisher.

Several years later that same person exposed the accounts of a Cayman Bank along with the detailed description of how the hack was conducted. Inside the document were the references to several of the books that are in this queue.
