Cult of the Dead Cow

How the Original Hacking Supergroup Might Just Save the World

The story of Cult of the Dead Cow chronicles the journey of the oldest, most esteemed, and most renowned American hacking group ever. Although it has largely operated in anonymity until recently, its members pioneered hacktivism, developed the leading tool for password security testing, and devised a superior method for remote computer control. This pushed major corporations to enhance their customer protection efforts. They also played a role in the development of Tor, the internet’s most crucial privacy tool, and contributed to creating cyberweapons that bolstered US security without causing physical harm.
