Digital Desperado is a CNN Time interview with Justin Petersen aka Agent Steal. Justin was an FBI informant. He helped the FBI to build criminal cases against Kevin Poulsen and later Kevin Mitnick. He caused a controversy when the FBI turned a blind eye on Agent Steal's continued hacking and credit card fraud activities even when working as an informant. Eventually he became a fugitive when his former associate, Ron Austin, sent implicating information to the FBI.


CNN & Time features Justin Petersen in a segment titled "Digital Desperado." This 13 minute video, produced in 2000, covers Agent Steals history, from breaking into C.O.'s with Kevin Poulsen and Ron Austin, to wiretapping, to what he's up to these days.
