"The home of a 16-year-old Norwegian hacker, who has become
the Helen of Troy of the hacking world, was raided
"Police entered Jon Johansen's Larvik home and confiscated two
personal computers, a mobile phone, and several computer disks,
Norwegian newspapers reported. The National Authority of Fraud
Investigation, the agency responsible for enviromental, computer,
and economic crime in Norway, was apparently responding to the two
federal lawsuits filed in the United States by the Motion Picture
Association of America against several hackers who posted a code
that breaks through the encryption code of DVDs."
"Johansen is co-founder of a group called MoRE (Masters of
Reverse Engineering), and it was there, he told Wired News, that he
worked with others in developing the code. He has never named those
authors publicly. Johansen says he posted the code because he
wanted to help make a DVD player available for the Linux OS."
