As journalist David Sanger filed stories on the U.S.-North Korea relationship, he noticed something rather important was missing from the coverage.

The countries’ negotiations never addressed cyberwarfare.

“They want to do nuclear, bio, chem,” Sanger told NPR’s Ari Shapiro. “And yet cyber is the only weapon that they've actually used against us and used effectively.”

Sanger, a national security correspondent for The New York Times, went on All Things Considered on Thursday to discuss his upcoming book, The Perfect Weapon: War, Sabotage, and Fear in the Cyber Age.

Listen to the interview about the work, which tells the story of the growing cyberwar that the U.S. is fighting in secret, below, or read a transcript on the NPR website.

The Perfect Weapon comes out June 19.
