Craig Neidorf

1990 – The Chicago Task raids the home of Craig Neidorf – A.K.A. Knight Lightning. The group, along with Bellsouth, are looking for information on an article published in the hacker rag “PHRACK – Control Office Administration of Enhanced 911 Service”. The article was written by “the Eavesdropper” and contained information that was obtained by documents stolen from Bellsouth.

The group doesn’t have a warrant, but when they show up the next day with one, Neidorf’s hard drive comes up missing. Craig will then be arrested for tampering.
