Mitnick is free to use computers for work
"[The] federal judge has ruled that such blanket restrictions are unacceptable and job offers should be considered on a case-by-case basis."

Now if only someone would apply the same kind of sanity to the Mike Diana case.

Lord, deliver us from any more stories about Kevin Mitnick.It's not that I'm not interested, I just don't care!

I feel sorry for all the people out there that wasted their time with the "Free Kevin!" campaign. Why free Kevin? He committed crimes and showed no remorse for them. I watched a few TV interviews with him, and he comes off as a complete jerk, citing that his hacking was a 'game' to him. If I had been the target of one of his cyber attacks, I'd have wanted him in jail too. Costing people time and money is not a game.
