Quote: "Some of the computer attack tools, such as SATAN, are now so user-friendly that very little computer experience or knowledge is required to launch automated attacks on systems. Also, informal hacker groups, such as the 2600 club, the Legions of Doom, and Phrackers Inc., openly share information on the Internet about how to break into computer systems. This open sharing of information combined with the availability of user-friendly and powerful attack tools makes in relatively easy for anyone to learn how to attack systems or to refine their attack techniques." - General Accounting Office report entitled "Computer Attacks at Department of Defense Pose Increasing Ricks".
