Kevin Mitnick, the world famous former hacker who was jailed for his crimes, acknowledges that his web site for Defensive Thinking Inc. has been hacked two times in the last few weeks.
Mitnick, who is now a security consultant for corporations which want to avoid such attacks, doesn't consider the attacks serious enough to report to authorities. One hacker left a picture of a polar bear. The other hacker asked for a job.
Mitnick says the person in charge of his web site forgot to install the new patches Microsoft offers to protect against attacks. He says: "No customer information was released nor was in danger of being compromised."
