01.07.99 HACKER GROUPS CONDEMN LOU CYBERWAR
Following a declaration of war by the Legions of the Underground (LoU) against the information infrastructures of China and Iraq, 2600, along with hacker groups including the L0pht, Chaos Computer Club, and the Cult of the Dead Cow, issued a joint statement and a press release. One day later, members of the LoU issued a statement condemning any destructive actions.

04.01.99 APRIL FOOLS
April Fool's Day has ended and with it a new phenomenon that will no doubt become an annual event - FAKE Hacked Web Sites. Some of the sites were obvious jokes (with clues hidden in the page's source) and others really don't have any proof one way or another. We'll take their word for it.

04.22.99 NEW MITNICK EVIDENCE REVEALS CORPORATE FRAUD
2600 has obtained the letters sent to the FBI that were used to help calculate "damages" caused by Kevin Mitnick. The following letters can be thought of as the main reasons why Kevin was able to be held without bail for so long and will no doubt be used at his sentencing on June 14 to impose more harsh conditions.

05.06.99 SUN GIVING AWAY $80 MILLION SOURCE CODE
If you do a little digging, you will find that Sun's claims against Mitnick carry no weight at all.

05.10.99 GOVERNMENT FURIOUS OVER PUBLICATION OF LETTERS
2600 has just learned of some extremely important and rather shocking developments in the Kevin Mitnick case. It seems our little disclosure of the documents detailing the "loss" Kevin was responsible for have really gotten the government pissed off.

08.09.99 MITNICK CASE OVER AT LAST
It's over, at last. Kevin Mitnick was sentenced on August 9, 1999.

09.20.99 NEW INTERNIC EMAIL SECURITY HOLE
We have been alerted to a serious vulnerability on a free web-based e-mail service that has recently been launched by Network Solutions Inc., otherwise known as the Internic - the people responsible for registering nearly all .com, .net, and .org addresses.

09.20.99 EMAIL FROM INTERNIC SECURITY HOLE
The following are samples of the mail that is world readable on NSI's system.

09.22.99 HOSPITAL PUTS PATIENT RECORDS ON DISPLAY
A simple scan of toll-free numbers has turned up a very disturbing item and one which we fear may be all too commonplace.

09.24.99 MITNICK RELEASE DATE SET
According to prison authorities, Kevin Mitnick will be released from prison on Friday, January 21, 2000. At that time he will have served 1,792 days in federal custody - nearly five years.

Massive civil unrest struck the city of Seattle on Tuesday, November 30 as protestors successfully disrupted the annual meeting of the World Trade Organization.

12.18.99 FEDS RAID ELECTRONIC HOBBY VENDORS
2600 has learned that several small electronic hobbyist vendors were recently raided by federal agents brandishing semiautomatic weapons. News of these raids has been kept out of the media and many of those involved fear retribution if they openly discuss the case. Until now, these companies had operated for years selling harmless educational electronic kits (like wireless microphones) to students, hobbyists, ham radio operators, and hackers. Now their inventories are being seized at gunpoint--and their owners could be facing bankruptcy and prison time.
