1995 - Most people didn’t even really know what the internet was at this point, but Chris Lamprecht did – And he got banned for life from using it. Funny thing is, he didn’t do a crime on the internet. He sold stolen circuit boards belonging to Southwest Bell. He would be banned from the Internet until 2003 (which he got out of in 2002). Lamprecht did write a program called ToneLoc. The movie War Games used this program as a basis to the movie.
