    I just searched for documents/video on kazaa about Kevin Mitnick but came up with nothing. That book he wrote looks very interesting.

    He is the famoust computer cracker alive.

    He has cracked networks of Sun Microsystems, IBM and a lot of other companies.

    He was caught by the FBI after a three year long search and came into a jail.

    The US government was so paranoid, that they forbid him to use phones and computers, cause they have believed, that he can crash the whole computer networks in the US and outside the US with one phonecall.

    He was for 5 years in jail and is now free and can use since the 21. January a computer.

    Movie: Operation Takedown

    He was a cracker

    Hackers=Are interested in security, are working to close security stuff

    Crackers=Break in to networks, using leaks in the system, which were detected by hackers or are known...., they destroy the network, crack the passwords and steal important Software codes, break into bank accounts..

    Hackers=GOOD
    Crackers=BAD
