The History of Hacking

Discovery Channel played a very interesting documentary titled “The History of Hacking”. This goes into the whole history of hacking starting with phone phreaking and Blue boxes and to the present state of hacking.

However, a significant portion of this documentary tackles Social Engineering especially the most famous or rather infamous social engineer of all, Kevin Mitnick. Folks in Computer Security should definitely read up on Kevin Mitnick’s books , The Art of Deception and The Art of Intrusion, both very interesting reads.
