IRL Name: 
Jason Mewhiney

tr0ut is one of the members of h4g1s (Hackers Against Geeks in Snowsuits), the group that hacked the National Aeronautics & Space Administration website in the year 1997 which started a private little cyber war between h4g1s members; u4ea and tr0ut against Jay Dyson, a whitehat who works for NASA. tr0ut and u4ea also hacked two Internet service providers to fuck up Jay Dyson by cracking his home business and harassing his wife which in turn costs his marriage. h4g1s has also breached Yahoo and propeller-head sites Slashdot and Rootshell. Each time, it engaged in a little nanny-nanny-boo-boo and made demands for the release of a jailed hacker hero, Kevin Mitnick. When Hagis cracked the Greenpeace, it posted a warning: "Phree Kevin Mitnick or we will club 600 baby seals."


In April 1998 the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Sudbury, Ontario, arrested him and charged him with 46 counts of criminal mischief, illegal entry and other charges.

Supports Kevin Mitnick.
