Database Hackers Reveal Tactics By Kim Zetter Hacking began with AOL Cam0 is also a suspect in the recent security breach of socialite Paris Hilton's T-Mobile account and was investigated last summer after admitting to Wired News that he hacked America Online and stole AOL Instant Messaging screen names, among other exploits. He has yet to be charged for the AOL breaches but told Wired News on Monday that the AOL activity, which he began in 1997, was the "gateway drug" that emboldened him and other members of Defonic Crew to graduate to other hacking projects. "If there was a security breach (at AOL), we were all a part of them.... That's how we all started," he said. "We all met up on AOL breaking into their crap. If it wasn't for AOL none of this (LexisNexis stuff) would have happened." "Shasta," a hacker who knows Defonic Crew but isn't a suspect in the LexisNexis breach, said the success of the AOL breaches made Defonic Crew careless about not covering its tracks in LexisNexis. "It made them feel invincible," he said. "And they weren't worried about getting caught." They naturally are circumspect in the face of possible consequences. "I really wish that I hadn't been able to get access to (the LexisNexis database)," said the 20-year-old, who lives in Rhode Island and goes by the name "Krazed." "Curiosity gets you in trouble."
