    White Hats Beware

    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Federal law enforcement officials have obtained an arrest warrant for a hacker who makes a habit of breaking into corporate computers and then publicly exposing the security holes, a spokeswoman for a federal public defender's office confirmed on Friday.

    The day when you could expect to be called a hero for exposing
    security flaws by "white hat hacking" is long gone. The operative
    word today should be "don't get caught", or better yet,
    don't do anything illegal.
    I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.

    Wasn't this the same guy that 'hacked' the Cingular Insurance website, I think it's called Lockline, by digging through the dumpster of a Cingular store and coming up w/ page printouts of peoples' insurance claims?
    Every now and then, one of you won't annoy me.
