I doubt this 'biggest' stuff but there it is: http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/news/articles/19164714?source=Evening%20Standard&ct=5

The unemployed former computer engineer is accused of causing the US government $1billion of damage by breaking into its most secure computers at the Pentagon and Nasa. He is likely to be extradited to America to face eight counts of computer crime in 14 states and could be jailed for 70 years.


70 years eh?  That hairstyle might come back by that time...

Hacking into government computers is not the best way to prove that aliens exist. Especially at the cost of so many years of ones life.

It would be better to just smash their broadcast system that keeps our minds asleep so that everyone can see.

Pfff... if he were really such a good hacker, he wouldnt have been caught.  Especially by the losers who run government systems; as far as computer security goes, 98% of those guys are the bottom of the barrel, just passing thru until they can hopefully find a do-nothing management job.  The 2% is the experts doing the real work, and trust me, there is MORE than enough of that.

The best hackers have not been, and will likely never be, caught.  Were I ever to go black hat, I would make spyware; nobody is going to jail for making spyware.  Either that or I would work for a spammer.

Stupid fucking ethics, always holding me back  :x
