This is really exciting news.
Famous hacker and security expert Gregory D. Evans revealed exclusively to Brad from Techwebcast over the weekend that he is having a movie made about his life.
If you’re not familiar with Gregory’s work, he’s done time in the chokey for being convicted of telecommunications fraud and was locked up at the same time (and in the same place) as Kevin Mitnick. – and judging by the smack he was talking about Mitnick and the reaction to his Techwebcast interview across Twitter, there is plenty of bad blood there.
Evans’ story is sure to include retellings of how he made millions of dollars through his work as a security expert, lived the high life of hanging out with NBA players and owning several businesses throughout Los Angeles. His self-described beginnings consisted of growing up in poor conditions and that he first started hacking whilst in school by changing grades of students and causing general mischief.
If you haven’t yet listened to his interview with Techwebcast, be sure to check it out the link above and have a listen to what he revealed about his life and his immediate plans for the future. The film should certainly make for interesting theatre and is likely to cause a stir amoungst the hacking elite – apparently a fair few people think he’s a fraud.
It’ll be interesting to hear his side of the story in detail.
