The Fifth Estate Hackers

Whatever anyone may claim, there is no defense against computer hackers — those people who get into places you thought were safe. This program takes a journey into their world to see what they're capable of doing — the young hacker who stole thousands of credit card numbers and then bragged about it on Internet radio; the one who hacked into mighty Microsoft twice; and the one who hacked into orbit, stealing crucial codes from the international space station. You'll see how systems in the government, the military and corporations are being invaded and key files altered, and how easy it is for a hacker to steal a person's identity.
