Once in a while Wired has some good stuff.

TLDR version:

Tracks the criminal career of a Hacker under the Handle "Iceman." Particularly it describes his turn from white hat to black hat (don't exploit gov't systems, they don't like it) and eventually his full blown career in the business of credit card fraud. Also it does a good job showing how the Secret Service and FBI hunts down these black hats.

That was excellent. I haven't read anything that entertaining since Kevin Mitnick.
