Evil Pete, Dark OverLord

IRL Name: 
Peter Shipley

Peter Shipley is a renowned and reformed hacker, security expert and the founder of Network Security Associates a security consulting business in Berkeley, California. His handle is not to be confused with Pete Evil who is the leader of the band Blood Tsunami (duh!). According to Thom Stark, his exploits -- in both senses of the word -- are legendary. He's a reliable presence at Defcon and other security-oriented hacker events and he prefers to demonstrate the security flaws he's discovered as they exist "in the wild" -- which is to say, in the real world.


He wrote the first network scanner NetSweep in 1988.

He is said to be the inventor of war driving.
