Computer fraud, black–hat hacking, cyber–terrorists; these phrases describe an innovative generation of criminals that use over–the–wire technology to attack us, steal from us and terrorize us. However, the best tool in their arsenal is not new. It is only used by the most experienced, the most dangerous, boldest hackers.
