Abstract

Abstract On 6 November 1992 a group of young people gathered in the food court of the Pentagon City Mall in Arlington, Virginia, USA for the monthly meeting of the ‘2600 Club’ — a club which derived its name from the hertz frequency once used by telephone ‘hackers’. During the course of the meeting, the group was approached by members of the mall security staff, and at least one Secret Service agent. The security personnel requested identifications, compiled a list of names of the participants, confiscated computer books and printouts, and asked the group to leave the premises.
