Kevin Poulsen has a piece at Security Focus about Nicolas Jacobsen, the 21 year old malicious hacker who allegedly broke into the T-Mobile network for at least a year. He apparently used this access to monitor U.S. Secret Service e-mail, download candid photos of celebrities and others, and obtain passwords and Social Security numbers of the wireless network's 16.3 million customers. Mr. Jacobsen was charged with two felony counts of computer intrusion and unauthorized impairment of a protected computer. His trial is scheduled to begin on Feb. 14th in Los Angeles.
