Re: "The Art of Deception"
Kevin Mitnick is a famous hacker who stole software. He used cell phones to make it difficult to trace him and find his location. He used a lot of social engineering techniques to manipulate people to get what he needed / wanted.
He was caught, then made an example of. Suffered a difficult sentence. He had many months of solitary confinement without phone calls because the prosecutor said he could whistle into a phone and launch nuclear missiles.
I read The Art of Intrusion. It was an interesting and informative read. I got to admit though some of the things that happen seem far fetched.
