Browsing Reddit I stumbled upon an article about Kevin Mitnick and what he’s doing nowadays. Since I’m still remembering the websites wearing orange free Kevin banners back in the days, I was pretty curious.
Its awesome to see that he runs a very successful cybersec company.
“Mitnick said he initially became a computer hacker because he loved magic.”
I love this anecdote. That’s pretty much the reason I’m interested in netsec as well. More because of fantasy novel magery and Ultima Online kind of than Houdini or alikes.
Should have started earlier to get into netsec myself, it’s still awesome fun but its not as mystified as before I got myself digging deeper in IT security.
