    I think it goes without saying that hacking the Director of the CIA was a bad idea. Imagine being a pasty white twenty something kid heading to federal prison with a cool name like D3F4ULT or INCURSIO. Somebody needs to come up with a cool way to spell PR150N5EX.

    Andrew Otto Boggs, a.k.a. “INCURSIO,” 22, of North Wilkesboro, N.C., and Justin Gray Liverman, a.k.a. “D3F4ULT,” 24, of Morehead City, N.C., were arrested Thursday morning and will be extradited next week to Alexandria, where federal prosecutors for the Eastern District of Virginia have spent months building a case against a group that calls itself Crackas With Attitude. Along with Boggs and Liverman, authorities say, the group included three teenage boys being investigated in the United Kingdom.

    "Crackas With Attitude"

    Let's see if they maintain that tough name in prison.

    This one has some balls on him. In parts its like an episode of Mr Robot. But I have to wonder, where the hell did they think this would lead them? What was their end game? Go to Gitmo?

    The only sad part of the story was the director of CIA uses AOL. That alone should disqualify him from any position.

    They will be offered a job. :LOL: Also, going to jail from what was probably just snooping and no real harm was done is a bit much when you consider others that didn't get anything done to them like Hillary Clinton...

    Na, that boat has sailed. The need for IA and cybersecurity engineers, and white hats is producing an army. The need no longer justifies overlooking such things, besides, it wasn't really a skill hack, it was just a social engineering job.

    That was the first thing that popped out at me too! Takes the "I" right out of CIA.

    When's the CIA going to get arrested for importing drugs into the USA, which probably caused the death of some of its own citizens from overdose.
