Legendary hacker Kevin Mitnick returns to the Internet tomorrow when his probation forbidding him to use the Internet (and all computers) comes to an end. Kevin was jailed following a series of legendary hacking exploits, and has never used the commercial Internet.
But all of that will change tomorrow when "39-year-old Kevin Mitnick will log on to the Internet for the first time in eight years, during the live TechTV show "Screen Savers.""
Now something of a reformed character, Kevin will likely take up employment as a computer security consultant of some sort. He's become something of a celebrity, and wrote a book called "The Art of Deception" where he talks about a lot of the social and psychological aspects of his hacking. You can read about that book here. A very gifted computer security guru who is well worth reading about.
