Just wondering how you guys got involved in computer security or phreaking?

I personally got involved in it through watching my older friends when I was about 10 then I got involved myself later when about 11 - 12 with them.

From then on got interested more and more in security and computers more, kept progressing. And still going strong.

Now whats ur excuse?
The use of "hacker" to mean "security breaker" is a confusion on the part of the mass media. We hackers refuse to recognize that meaning, and continue using the word to mean, "Someone who loves to program and enjoys being clever about it."
