Kevin Mitnick's own web site hacked - Welcome Back Kevin !

by Nikola Strahija on February 9th, 2003 Things were looking a little too good for Kevin Mitnick. In 2000, he completed a five-year prison term for computer crimes and in January, his probation restrictions were lifted. He has a new book out, The Art of Deception: Controlling the Human Element of Security and he started up his own company called DefensiveThinking.com to teach corporations and the government how to secure their networks from social engineers.


Over at Zone-H.org, the hackers defacement mirror, a new web site defacement has been recorded that appears to show that Kevin Mitnick's own website, www.DefensiveThinking.com has been hacked. The text of the defacement reads as follows:

welcome back to freedom mr.kevin ;)

BugBear is trying to tell u have forget to secure your box, it was fun and
easy to break into your box ;). Greetings to all the slimshaddy mpany,
50cent,Dr.Dre nah whait a minute this is eminem spech. greeting
to :bugbears,linux-master, Dkd ||, #linux architects

Considering the recent round of hoax hackings that have been occuring I am not quite sure at this point whether someone is pulling the wool over Zone-H's eyes or if Kevin's DefensiveThinking.com web site was defaced. But since I was advised of this hacking by Zone-H's system administrator I am pretty confident that he verified things out before recording the defacement to his archive. I also seriously doubt that Kevin would stage a fake hacking of his own web site. I popped over to check at the real DefensiveThinking.com web site and everything seems to look in normal order at this time.
