Some hackers seem to like the power that they can feel when they hack. These situations can get personal as Brian Krebs learned. He tracked and tried to frame a hacker named Sergey Vovnenko. In the end Krebs ended up conversing several times with Vovnenko, finding out that Vovnenko had a huge ego, and hardly believed he could be caught.
- Krebs thinks some hackers just really enjoy messing things up and attacking people or doing it as a power trip.
