    I suppose it was only a matter of time until cracking turned into an organized crime...

    I guess the Soprano gangster stereotype may have to be changed now.

    hmmm

    I'm surprised it's taken this long for something like this to happen. Hasn't it happened before? hmmm, maybe that was just some stupid movie I was watching...or book I was reading.

    anyway, won't be long before copycats emerge.

    maybe some stupid 12 yr old hacker will try it on Microsoft...then all hell will break loose. :)
