Top 5 Most Pirated eBooks – Playboy out, Hacking in

It’s Wednesday again, which means its time to go look at The Pirate Bay and see what ebooks are being pirated. I’m planning to make this a semi-weekly series, and it will look at how the list changes.

There isn’t much change from last week. Two of the titles are self-help books, and the other 3 are technical guides. The one change from last week was that the June issue of Playboy dropped from 4th to 7th, which makes me wonder if people really were pirating it just for the articles.

The most interesting change is actually the book in the number 6 spot, Hacking – Firewalls And Networks How To Hack Into Remote Compute. That wasn’t even in the top 10 last week. I would guess that its sudden increase in popularity might be due to the recent arrest of Lulzsec and Anonymous hackers.
