Famed hacker Kevin Mitnick will be coming to Kafkaville Sept. 25 to promote his new book, writes Lidové noviny.

Mitnick, you may recall, was sentenced in 1995 to five years in prison for his hacking, and then when he was released early for good behavior in 2000, one of the court’s requirements was that he wasn’t allowed to touch a computer connected to the Internet for another three years. “When I found out a toilet was controlled by electronic sensors, I always got nervous that federal agents would suddenly appear and send me back behind bars,” he said in one interview, LN writes.
