And the hacker is...

My name is David KernellI am 15 a white cacasian male i live in memphis, TN.

This bio was posted in 2003 to a blog linked to the email address rubico10@yahoo.com. Now he would be about 20. There is a democrat representative from TN named Mike Kernell. Coincidence?

Email: rubico10@yahoo.com
Blog: http://apocalypticvisions.blogspot.com/

UPDATE: There is a facebook account registered with the email rubico10@yahoo.com under the name John Madision. A ruse?

UPDATE: There is a David Carl Kernell on peekyou with a link to a dead myspace page. A google search of "David C Kernell" reveals several links to chess sites (He claims, in his blog, to be a chess freak.)

David Carl Kernell = rubico10@yahoo.com?

Update: His now-defunct wikipedia account.

What is the possibility that rubico10@yahoo.com claimed responsibility, but didn't do it? What is the liklihood that rubico10@yahoo.com himself got hacked? IMO, not likely. It seems like some kid desperately wanted the attention and mistakenly let identifying factors slip (the ctunnel stamp, his email) assuming that people outside of a "hacker" forum wouldn't bother looking.

after the password recovery was reenabled, it took seriously 45 mins on wikipedia and google to find the info, Birthday? 15 seconds on wikipedia, zip code? well she had always been from wasilla, and it only has 2 zip codes (thanks online postal service!)

Gee, how long did it take to find YOUR information, David? Who does something this illegal, leaves a huge trail, and then goes out and brags about it? What a geek.


so I posted the pass on /b/, and then promptly deleted everything, and unplugged my internet and just sat there in a comatose state

until you logged BACK on and blabbed your mouth to the world. Way to go!

UPDATE: New "cracker" pic?

Jeez, I hope I never get famous enough for people to search for my 8th grade pictures. I'm starting to feel bad for the guy.

Terry Frank has up screen caps of David's facebook. He's a member of all sorts of leftist groups (I'm shocked!) and calls himself an Obamacrat.
