"Kevin Mitnick, the notorious computer hacker accused of causing millions of dollars in damage to technology companies, has been ordered to get off the lecture circuit or risk going back to prison."

"Under a plea agreement, U.S. District Judge Mariana Pfaelzer prohibited Mitnick for three years after his release from any access to computers, cellular telephones, televisions or any equipment that can be used for Internet access. She said that she thought Mitnick would be unable to earn anything above minimum wage."

"Mitnick, 36, said he has been trying to educate others about protecting themselves against cyberspace intrusions. "This is good for the public and good for me because I feel productive," Mitnick said. "I recognize the errors of my past and I want to be productive."
