Interview with a hacker
ZDNet runs an interview with Gary McKinnon, a British man accused of committing the "biggest military computer hack of all time" against the US Department of Defense among others. It is an interesting read for many reasons.
He says he started to access the systems to find evidence of government knowledge of extraterrestrial life. He also claims he found evidence that the US has an antigravity device. (I'd like one of those for my birthday, please.)
The matter does raise some serious issues, such as the adequacy of security on those systems, and the rights of British citizens accused of committing crimes in the US while in Britain.
