The US government has finally indicted Gary McKinnon for unauthorized access (cracking) of NASA’s computer systems. Findlaw.com has posted a copy of this indictment on it’s website. This indictment contains the IP addresses of computers “accessed and damaged” by this McKinnon. Never fear though, the copy is in .pdf format and they blacked-out the actual IP’s. Good thinking guys.

By the way, did you folks know that you can select all the text (Ctrl-A) in the .pdf, copy (Ctrl-C) it, and paste (Ctrl-V) the text into a notepad file and it removes that layer of blackmarks revealing all the “hidden” IP’s? No? I didn’t think so.

So here in three keyboard combinations you can see the listing of IP addresses of the compromised systems.

I feel safer already.
