ST. PAUL, Minn. and NEW YORK, April 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Morgan James's new release, Virus Bomb: A Novel by D. Greg Scott, opens the window into a fictional universe where the United States is the target for a serious cyber-attack. Drawing in a diverse audience of aviation enthusiasts, medical professionals, leaders in business and government, and law enforcement officials, the educational cyber thriller Virus Bomb appeals to the nail-biting adrenaline junkies. Dissecting the technological details of the situation while outlining what a biological attack based on today's cyber data could look like, Greg Scott hitches the imagination to a rocket as he launches the reader into a potentially devastating chain of events.
Using his professional experience in the IT industry to flesh out the details in Virus Bomb, Scott transports the reader to the brink of the largest cyber-attack in history, where the fate of thousands rests in the hands of an ordinary bald guy, "Jerry" from IT, with no prior connections to the government. Will Jerry take matters into his own hands, to protect his fellow citizens? Will Jerry be able to convince the bored and uninterested government officials of the importance of IT security? As Jerry's journey intersects with a young man who has been persuaded by foreign radicals, Virus Bomb provides a peek into the web of actors with ill-intentions who could unite effortlessly via the internet and conspire against large entities - in this case, the USA.
Virus Bomb hits especially close to home as its readers in actuality face daily headlines of data breaches. The real-life news less frequently explains the possible outcomes of such a disaster, as it would incite panic—rightfully so. Scott's work comes face to face with the decisions of a regular citizen when personal sacrifice and large-scale devastation both hang in the balance.
