A couple of weeks ago some guy gave an interview on TV claiming he was a hacker. I laughed my buttox of with it, but at the same time felt ashamed by it.
I generally don’t pay much attention to security issues, but I try to keep my stuff together. So the guy claimed to be a hacker who defaces sites (but does not leave a marks though… what?) and steals credit cards from online shops that keep a credit card database… and, well he kind of forgot to give the news reporter a fake nickname… of course after the piece was shown everybody started digging him up and found everything about him: name, photos, address, birth date, birthplace.
I’m guessing he’s gonna have a hard time in the future, but hey, everyone forgets right?
