Eric Corley aka Emmanuel Goldstein has been an active supporter and close friend for over a decade. If I had even a pinkie-finger of a hand into the Trade Center He said, “Look, am I under arrest, are you guys police, what’s the deal?

After gaining root, neOh set out to intercept passwords and e-mail by installing a sniffer program, which acts like a computer wiretap.
