A three-part series from the St. Petersburg Times.

PART I: WE ARE HACKERS
The underbelly of cyberspace
Depending on whom you ask, hackers are harmless pranksters, curious techies, noble freedom fighters or dangerously unpredictable cyberterrorists. As the world goes online, hackers' potential influence -- and menace -- grows.


PART II: STREET SMARTS
Computer security's
rock 'n' roll pioneer

Winn Schwartau was called "Chicken Little" several years ago, when he said the United States was vulnerable to electronic attack. Now he makes money taming that threat.

PART III: NOT ALL FUN AND GAMES
Hidden dangers
As more commerce moves to computer networks, business and the government turn to their former nemesis -- the hacker -- for help.
