Zach Gall That's the whole point. When your security gets lax and you have gaping holes in it, malicious operatives/hackers would have been just as lucky!

Why did he go through all this trouble of hiding the location when both people he employed had cell phones with active phone service?

Jason B Well he most certainly SHOULD hide the location, along with everything else in situations like this. But I agree, he really got sloppy, having a blog with illegal stuff that has his fucking PHOTOGRAPH? What a noob. Either that or he just got incredibly sloppy/lazy. Terrible OPSEC.

This episode was fantastic. I think every second or third episode should be something like this. An experienced hacker talking about breaking into or failing to break into an organisation. It's super interesting hearing it from their point of view. Great podcast btw!!

Hey Jack! Brotherman I have recently (January) started running track and I needed something to listen to. I found your podcast and I just want to tell you it's awesome. I have told soooo many people about your show and the joy it gives me to listen..I can relate my younger days to alot of your stories , I also did questionable things with my dial up connection back in the day. The story about using a trojan virus to connect to people's ip address is one that stands out in my mind.. but I used one called netbus. anyway I went over to a buddies house with a floppy in my pocket and patched his computer using the exe file, later that night I connected. At the time he was surfing the web looking at his Myspace page and being super boring. I was just about to stop monitoring and start screwing around with him (pull the mouse away... redirect him to funny web sites... make his CD ROM drive pop out but I decided before I do that I'm just gonna check the saved user names and passwords in his Internet explorer.. heck maybe I will get his Myspace password then I can change his page and have some great fun... I pulled those up to find over 15 user name and password to pay gay sites... OMG my buddy is gay??!?? but... there's no way my 14 year old friend has a credit card... these are pay gay sites.... back in the day (late 90s) families didn't have computers in every room of the house.. most people had one computer and the whole family used it. wait...holy crap! It's his dad!! and his parents were still together! then I started thinking.. his dad is kinda feminine so that totally makes sense. I immediately disconnected the connection and never connected again. can you imagine?? I was possibly the only person that had this private info? AND I WAS 15 years old! after high school his dad divorced his mom and came out but to this day I have never told him lol. I still see him from time to time but I just can't bring myself to let him know what happened. there's a few of your episodes that I can relate to and remind me of my own experiences.. I love it..if you keep doing what your doing, I'm sure you will rise to the top of the charts! Dedicated Listener, Jonathan

Hey Jack, thanks again for a wonderful show. I'm not computer literate, but every episode leaves me researching terms used, and everything else about the subject of each episode. very cool.
