“Kevin Mitnick, a reformed hacker who was once one of the FBI’s “most wanted” cybercriminals, has died at the age of 59.

“Mitnick spent five years in prison for computer and wire fraud following a two-year federal manhunt in the 1990s.

“But after his release in 2000 he reinvented himself, becoming a renowned “white hat” hacker, cybersecurity consultant and author.

“He died on Sunday following a 14-month long battle with pancreatic cancer.

“”Kevin was an original; much of his life reads like a fiction story,” his obituary reads.

“”He grew up brilliant and restless in the San Fernando Valley in California, an only child with a penchant for mischief, a defiant attitude toward authority, and a love for magic.””
