To hack a Superpower

Posted by Jonas Elfström Thu, 14 Oct 2010 19:57:00 GMT

I was interviewed in a swedish documentary called Att hacka en stormakt (To hack a Superpower). It's mostly in swedish but Brian Koref (US AF) and Tom Talleur (NASA) are interviewed in english. It can be streamed from SVTPlay (at least if you live in Sweden) until 2010-11-09.

It covers the cracking frenzy of a couple Swedish youths back in 1996. They happened to break into a server I was responsible for and from that server they logged in to a machine with a .mil-address. That's how we got involved.

The event has been covered before in a radio documentary called Svenska hackers (Swedish hackers).

      That’s really cool that you were interviewed in the documentary. You must have been devastated when your server was hacked. I’m always trying to protect my server against hackers, but unfortunately, even the toughest barriers can be cracked sometimes.
