'80s hacker turned journo, IT crime ace Steve Gold logs off




$! I worked at BT Gold during 1998 and early 1989.


$! I don't remember ever interacting with Steve Gold, but I do remember very

$! well the huge fuss after the Prince Phillip Mailbox Hack. Word came down

$! from On High that someone had done a Very Bad Thing and it wasn't to

$! happen again. Or Else.


$! Perhaps someone on the board was worried that a future knighthood might

$! be in jeopardy.


$! Well played, Mr. G. I'll take down your Handbook from the attic and read

$! it again.
