    if he can do it and make some money, then i don't see why mafiaboy couldn't do the same thing.

    I can see the skiddie's paying money to get there hands on this book in the hope of learning something.

    Heck i will probably buy it also, seeing as i am continually reffered to as a " script kiddie"....

    John Vranesevich, in this Nov. 1997 photo, used his World Wide Web site to interview computer hackers who claim they broke into a Pentagon network and stole software for a military satellite system. It was also last month that Vranesevich, a 19-year-old self-taught computer security expert, decided that he didn't really need an undergraduate degree and parted ways with the University of Pittsburgh. These days, he is parked in front of a computer at his parents' house in Beaver, PA., surrounded by programming textbooks. He said he has had several job offers.

    All I see is an ocean of wasted youth. Lets put it this way, most of those people haven't accomplished much... both in the technology field and in life.
    he can't hold a candle to Kevin Mitnick
    Mitnick, ugh... someone needs to tell him this isn't 1990-something. Atleast GayPee had enought sense to give up on renting offices and pretending to be a "security expert".

    I bought Ankit's book when it came out, read almost half (jumped around a lot), and I was severely disappointed. I managed to recoup about half of what I paid for it by over charging for shipping on ebay.

    I wouldn't buy a skiddie's book to wipe my a$$ with, let alone read.

    A skiddie is a luser and cannot write anything interesting for the simple reason that they actually know nothing.

    Everyone has a computer today and to a large extent everyone has done neat things with them. If you feel particularly hip and smart because you've "done something with a computer"... then you're already behind the curve
    .

    That is pretty much what it is about. I have done some "pretty neat things" with .22LR, .22Short, .38Spl, 9mm Parabellum, .308Win, .45ACP and the rest. All that means is that I was as good as my last shoot; not that I have contributed anything to the sport?

    Kevin Mitnick is a strange case to me, at least. He wasn't a "hacker" as such, but a "cyber criminal", and, given that he was caught and convicted three times, not a very good one at that? His story is still far more interesting, as it is based on "real" criminal activities.

    What we have here is a luser with a hack journalist as a "ghostwriter" hoping to gouge as much cash out of ID10Ts as they can. Take my advice folks.............. spend it on beer and JD

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
    What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?
