  Hacking the Hotel through a TV
ZDNet has posted an interesting article titled "Hacking the Hotel through a TV." The article describes how a hacker named Adam Laurie has hacked into the hotel system and was able to watch premium channels for free, control the minibar, schedule phone calls, and even spy on his guests. It does not note whether this behavior can be deemed criminal and ends with saying, "Next time you check into a hotel, first make sure Adam Laurie isn't staying there as well"." I'm sure this guy will probably be caught sooner or later for trespassing and altering system behavior since now he's formally announced it. I believe you even might be able to find formal instructions on how to do this yourself, but I would not recommend it because of the criminal nature of this work.
