The FCC apparently believes Kevin Mitnick is no longer a threat to hold an FCC radio license - the agency accepted his bid for reinstatement of his license and restored him to the ranks of US amateur radio licensees.
His call letters are N6NHG.
Speaking of Kevin, did anyone here read Takedown, by Tsutomu Shimomura? Tsutomu sure took being hacked personally!
His licence cost 16,000.00 (because of legal fees)
Take a look at Kevin's new book 'The Art of Deception' and check out the newsgroups for chapter 1 which is the missing chapter about his life - his story. Takedown is a poor book, theres much better ones which tell the story more accurately ;D
Even more interesting (IMO): his probabtion ends on January 20th... at which time he can get back on the internet. :) (And the gov't says he will not be under any special surveillance... not sure if I'd believe that were I in his shoes)
