I was just hunting UFOs, says Pentagon's UK hacker

seamless construction (using diffusion bonding) has been around for some time, it's just awkward (and expensive) to do with large objects.

He was either extremely brave or astonishingly fool.. Who the hell would hack pentagon from a home computer?

Nevertheless on the good cause tho, too bad they made him a terrorist, which he apparently isn't.

He does some time, like 10 years, writes a book about the whole thing and CHA CHING!

From the looks of the article he is more of a scriptkid then a real hacker.

He said it was easy, despite being only a rank amateur. Using the hacking name "Solo," he discovered that many U.S. top-security systems were using an insecure Microsoft Windows program and had no password protection at all.
