Slang for police and government officials (such as the FBI)—the enemies of crackers.As one example of the enmity between young crackers and the FBI, Chad Davis (a.k.a. MindPhasr) awoke one morning to find four special agents of the FBI and five local police crowded into his apartment in Green Bay, Wisconsin. They put handcuffs on him and took away his Power Macintosh computer as well as 300 music CDs. They also fined him $165 for having a can of beer in his refrigerator; he was not legally old enough to possess it, they said. Davis and MostHated, cofounders of the Global Hell hacker group (known on the Internet as gH), along with their gang members allegedly cracked the official FBI Web site and took it out of action.See Also: Cracking; Hacker Club.Schell, B.H., Dodge, J.L., with S.S.
