    Back on

    http://www.cnn.com/2003/TECH/interne...eut/index.html

    It's nothing stupendously amazing, but it is kinda cool to think that he's finally getting back online, and it's a big enough deal that it'll be on live TV.

    If I got TechTV, I'd be all over this (that and ScreenSavers is a great show to begin with)

    The hacking community has been following his story for years, and i think its safe to say this won't be his first time online since his trial......

    You don't think so? It'd have been a vioaltion of his probation...

    When he was in jail, I read that he was in solitary for 6 months and kept away from phones because they thoguht he could blow up the coutnry with one phone call.

    It was more like a year, but yea they were paranoid. Look someone as slick as mitnick was online, whether they know it or not.

    I think it's a possibility that he's been online since then...in his book he references a bunch of sites and emails. I know he mentions once that someone retrieves his emails for him, but surfs the web for him? Maybe he had some sort've system set up where he'd make a query about a certain site and someone would download it onto his computer for him...

    Weird - sounds like he's got some web secretary or something

    Hopefully TechTV's site puts up a video of it - I'd like to see it...

    I don't get techTV either but check neworder tommorow, i can almost guarantee they have a vid and/or a writeup of the whole thing. Hell you might find one on mitnicks website tommorow too.

    The dust jacket of his book says he's been on Cout TV, 60 minutes, and headline news... It neglects to mention that it was probably as a defendant

    > hes going to make the company he works for famous.

    AFAIK, he's got his own consulting firm - why would he want to work for anyone else fulltime?

    Oh, he'll make plenty of money - who better to secure your systems than the media dubbed "most infamous hacker of all time" turned good?
