As we move forward, we will describe a few anecdotal ­stories that emphasize the need for our scripts. Setting the Stage for Your First Python Program: The Cuckoo’s Egg A system administrator at Lawrence Berkley National Labs, Clifford Stoll, ­documented his personal hunt for a hacker (and KGB informant) who broke into various United States national research laboratories, army bases, defense contractors, and academic institutions in The Cuckoo’s Egg: Tracking a Spy Through the Maze of Computer Espionage (Stoll, 1989).
