The Scoop on Mitnick?

The Scoop on Mitnick?

Post by Michael Bresnah » Wed, 05 Apr 1995 04:00:00

I keep hearing references to Kevin Mitnick on and off the net, but I
have as yet to find any detailed information on him or any the
happenings that have made his name popular.  Could someone point me to
a newspaper article, magazine article, on-line doc, or whatever on the
subject or just fill me in with a post or email?

Any help would be most warm heartedly accepted.

Wow... I don't know whether to hate him or love him.  He's got so
many of the makings of an outlaw hero, yet at the same time he erodes
at the fabric that makes the internet the open place it is.

Where did you get all this stuff?  The article slaming Markoff is
particularily interesting.

So when will we see some of the source code stolen from Shimomura's
computer get posted to the net?  I'm assuming Mitnick shared it with
some of his buddies.

Does anyone know of any other bugs exploited by Mitnick except for IP
spoofing in the attack on Shimomura's machine?

Thanks much!  It was great reading!  

I waaana be like Mit! ;)

(trying to make up his mind whether he wants to study security or OS's)
