Subject: Pentagon, Citibank, the CIA and NASA, etc.

Dear Kim,

With all the press reports written in relation to your emergence as a
white knight for Letsbuyit.com, there has been frequent mention in the
media of your hacker past.

In particular, there is a lot of stuff written about claims made
(reportedly) by you about hacking the Pentagon, Citibank, the CIA and

There are also a lot of information security professionals who doubt
these claims... probably jealous of your lifestyle ;-).

In the absence of documented details on the hacks on CIA, NASA,
Citibank, etc. - I couldn't find any mention of these in your clippings
archive, nor in my usual sources -  I'd like to give you the opportunity
to set your critics right. I'm particularly interested in the
Citibank/Greenpeace story.

Could you provide any details about when any of these hacks occurred,
how they occurred, if they have been investigated by any law enforcement
agencies, etc.?

Numerous reports mention that you are a convicted hacker? What was the
conviction for?

Kindest regards,

Peter Thomas - Editor - http://www.securitywatch.com
