One of Microsoft's top Windows gurus and author of books and tools for
securely coding Windows has embraced fiction with a debut tackling
international cyber crime.
Platform and Services Division technical fellow Mark Russinovich has
delivered a Die-Hard-4-style novel called Zero Day .
It tells the story of Osama-bin-Laiden-backed terrorists exploiting our
decadent, infidel society's over-reliance on computers and the web.
Russinovich's site calls his work a chilling "'what if' scenario that,
in a world completely reliant on technology, is more than possible today
-- itâ€™s a cataclysmic disaster just waiting to happen".
