Probably not, try asking Mitnick.

Since, however, Mitnick did a number of things he should not
have done -- including fidling with Shimomura's machine -- I
don't see that Shimomura should have acted differently.

Furthermore, you're in the wrong news group.  You have not
understood the word hacker.  Go read the FAQ.


Getting the local Electrical company to _refuse_ to accept
