1995 has seen a plethora of computer crime stories; some thrust into the limelight by the media, and a few relatively unnoticed. By far, the most notorious is that of Kevin Mitnick, labeled everything from dangerous hacker to outright criminal by various eager media outlets. Another, less published but more ominous story is that of Ed Cummings, known to some as Bernie S, who through unusual and highly irregular circumstance, is now suffering at the hands of some of the nation's top law enforcement agencies. Charged under dubious circumstances, and perhaps dubious laws, Ed and Kevins' stories have been and will be regularly updated by 2600 Magazine. Check back often for the truth as we see it.
