Welcome to episode #127 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Twist Image Podcast. The subculture of hacking came into broad daylight in early 2000, "when the websites of CNN, Yahoo, E*Trade, Dell, Amazon, and eBay ground to a halt for several hours, causing panic everywhere from the White House to suburbia and around the world. After two months and hundreds of hours of wiretapping, the FBI and RCMP staged a late-night raid to apprehend the most wanted man in cyberspace — a 15-year-old kid, Mafiaboy. Eight years later, Mafiaboy, a.k.a.Michael Calce, has ignored requests from every major media outlet in North America and has not told a word of his story — until now. Using his experience as a cautionary tale, Calce and award-winning journalist Craig Silverman also take the reader through the history of hacking and how it has helped make the internet the new frontier for crime in the 21st century." That's how the book, Mafiaboy, is described on the website. Here's the conversation I had with Mafiaboy (Michael Calce) and his co-author, Craig Silverman, this past week. Enjoy the conversation...
