Kevin Mitnick has died at the age of 59 after years of battling pancreatic cancer

Through social networks and international media, the death of Kevin Mitnick, considered the most famous hacker in history, was confirmed.

Mitnick’s death was announced early on the social network Twitter, at age 59, after a long battle against pancreatic cancer.

His life was marked by persecutions, scandals, extensive media coverage and imprisonment in the United States, due to his knowledge and technological skills as a hacker that he developed at an early age.

Mitnik put the US judicial system to the test, prompting the creation of new laws to curb unauthorized access to digital networks and data.

With followers and detractors in the technological world, Mitnick lived through numerous ups and downs, all related to the hacking of companies and legal penalties. In fact, after being released after five years in prison, he published four books: The Art of Deception, The Art of Intrusion, A Ghost in the System, and The Art of Invisibility.
