Famed hacker Kevin Mitnick says he is coming clean and plans to auction off the laptops he used during his fugitive years in the 1990s, reports Reuters.
The hacker, who was on the run from the FBI for three years, hacked into networks along the way including those of Motorola, Sun Microsystems and Nokia, as well as the computer scientist who helped in his capture.
He was eventually nabbed in February 1995 and subsequently held for four-and-a-half years without bail.
Now Mitnick is flogging his Toshiba 1960CS, his laptop of the time, on eBay. The other laptop is also for sale and is described as having a "fine layer of fingerprint dust", red X marks where fingerprints were lifted and a mouse still housed in an FBI evidence bag.
Mitnick also says he intends to write a book.
God. There's like a dozen books already written about him, & hindi pa pala sya kuntento with all that mad publicity, so he comes up with an idea of writing a book, maybe about himself & his upscale pranks in detail, I bet? He's crazy. Talk about people & their savage want for 15 more minutes of fame. Errr, kahit infamy, even.
