Hackers can be tricky to figure out because even though they are incredibly sophisticated people, most use their knowledge for evil. Over the years, the world has been exposed to many hackers that are now infamous. As a matter of fact, here are some hackers that could scare both Chase Bank and Bank of America to death.
FIRST HACKER: ADRIAN LAMO
The first hacker that Bank of America and Chase Bank need to be aware of is Adrian Lamo. This man actually pulled off one of the most legendary hacks of all-time. In 2002, Lamo successfully hacked into the internal computers of The New York Times. When this was achieved, he had access to a lot of private information. This then led to him serving a two-year probation sentence. However, he is still out there and Chase Bank and Bank of America need to keep him on their watch list.
SECOND HACKER: ALBERT GONZALEZ
This next man is proof that money is not everything. Albert Gonzalez was made a legend in 2010, but not in the way that many would want. He executed one of the largest identity thefts of all time, as he was accused of stealing around 170 million credit card numbers. For this ridiculous act, he was sentenced to 20 years in prison. His resume, if you want to call it that, speaks for itself and when he gets out of prison Bank of America and Chase Bank better realize he may strike again.
THIRD HACKER: GARY MCKINNON
This next man, Gary McKinnon, completely trolled the American military. From 2001 until 2002, he gained access to around 97 military networks. However, he then trolled them by leaving a message that said: “your security is crap”. How insulting is it to not only be hacked but to then read such an insulting message? If the US military can be hacked, then you can bet Bank of America and Chase Bank can too.
