Gary McKinnon

His nick name is Solo. He is famous for hacking military and NASA computers. Gary hacked the military computers and deleted very important files from the operating systems of the computer network, which caused automatic shut down of 2000 computers for 24 hours. He also hacked 16 NASA computers. In a BBC interview, Gary McKinnon said that "he was not a malicious hacker bent on bringing down US military systems, but rather more of a bumbling computer nerd". The government officials claim that he caused a $700,000 loss for the government.
