Ummm I didn't but I knew people who did ;) ;)

Your description matches "my friends" experience 100%

Back when hacking was more about pranking and fun.

Yeah it was 100% fun, no malicious intent. Judging by the downvotes, people don't find it amusing. I can see that now that I'm not a dumb teenage... but it made for fond memories none the less! And the fact that pretty non-technical 15 year olds could pull that off in a matter of minutes, probably drove companies to take security a bit more seriously (hopefully)!

It was pre digital photography, so not like anyone had private nudes on their hard drive to poke through.

I can 100% attest that is is a false assumption. </regret>
