Remember Mafiaboy?

mafiaboyRemember Mafiaboy? The Canadian teenager hacker who launched the first mainstream DDoS attacks in 1999, against targets like Yahoo and eBay? The guy who - after CNN run a story on the attacks - took down CNN.COM? Who had his attacks categorized in the "top 10 hacks of all time" (!)?

Well, turns out he's nowadays a columnist for a newspaper in Montreal. In fact, he's covering some of his old attacks in his articles.
