Gary McKinnon (born 10 February 1966) is a Scottish system administrator and hacker who was accused in 2002 of perpetrating the “biggest military computer hack of all time,”. He Hacked 97 United States military and NASA computers over a 13-month period between February 2001 and March 2002, at his girlfriend’s aunt’s house in London, using the name ‘Solo’. Although McKinnon claimed that he was only searching for information related to free energy suppression and UFO activity cover-ups. But according to U.S. authorities, he deleted a number of critical files, rendering over 300 computers inoperable and resulting in over $700,000 in damages. McKinnon also posted a notice on the military’s website: “Your security is crap”.
US foreign policy is akin to Government-sponsored terrorism these days … It was not a mistake that there was a huge security stand down on September 11 last year … I am SOLO. I will continue to disrupt at the highest levels. Gary McKinnon!
