Phrack Magazine is one of the longest running electronic magazines in existence. Since 1985, Phrack has been providing the hacker community with information on operating systems, networking technologies, and telephony, as well as relaying other topics of interest to the international computer underground.
During its lifetime Phrack has always been at the center of controversy. Since the magazine has always been openly available, it presented law enforcement officials with what they perceived to be a direct link into the secret society of computer hackers. Not truly understanding neither the spirit of the magazine nor the community for which it was written, Federal Agents and Prosecutors began to target Phrack Magazine and those affiliated with it.
"The Hacker Crackdown" by Bruce Sterling relays the details surrounding these events.
Over the years, Phrack has had numerous editors.
Knight Lightning and Taran King (Phrack's Illustrious Founders), Cheap Shades, The Disk Jockey, Shooting Shark, Elric of Imrryr, Crimson Death, Dispater, Erik Bloodaxe and Daemon9, Voyager and ReDragon (the magazine's current editors.)
