Via SecurIT: KevinMitnick.com and MitnickSecurity.com hacked

I should not grin…but I don’t know what to make of this guy. Everybody has a write to make an honest living, but I am not comfortable with criminal hackers going legit and making money. Signals future incentives to potential hackers (increase likelihood of hacking). Then again, maybe the criminal hacker world has moved past where Mitnick was, so it is not a big deal. At some point I will read his social engineering book, but I don’t want to pay for it. My current boss has a copy on her bookshelf. Maybe I will borrow it over labour day weekend.
