10 Notorious Convicted Hackers of Our Time

Webupon has a neat article about the 10 most notorious convicted hackers of our time. This one to the left is Jonathan James, who looked straight out of The Matrix:

Jonathan James was the first juvenile, at the age of 16, to be jailed for computer crimes in the United States. His crimes were directed toward NASA and the US Department of Defense.

NASA claimed he downloaded $1.7 million worth of proprietary software. He then admitted to installing a "sniffer" on the Department of Defense's computer system which allowed him to intercept over three thousand messages passing to and from employees, along with numerous usernames and passwords of other DND employees. At least ten of the computers he hacked into were military computers.
