HOPE Number Six (2006): "Hackers in Prison" (Download)

  • 099

Saturday, July 22, 2006: 7:00 pm (Area "A"): For the first time ever, the three most famous imprisoned hackers of the 90s were scheduled to appear together on the same panel. Mark Abene (Phiber Optik) served ten months in 1994, bernieS was locked up for 14 months in five maximum security prisons in 1995 and 1996, and Kevin Mitnick was held for nearly five years. Each of these cases received a lot of exposure from 2600 and "Off The Hook" which wound up getting the attention of mass media and the public. But these cases are only the tip of the iceberg. You'll hear some of the background, learn about what's going on today with some other cases, and maybe even hear some prison stories.

(Kevin Mitnick was originally scheduled to be on this panel but unfortunately wound up in a hospital in Colombia for the entire conference. He is replaced here by Darci Wood.)
