Ultimate Hacking Mistake

The president of the World Wrestling Entertainment, Vince McMahon, has actually been known to wrestle -- and even at the tender age of nearly 67, the guy is ripped.

The president of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Dana White doesn't compete in his own league like Vince (maybe it's something about the fighting being real and you can't cheat), but by all accounts he is one tough son of a gun.

That's why it was such a bad idea for hacker JoshTheGod (perhaps JoshTheDope makes more sense) to hack Dana's company.

Josh has been nabbed not just for this infraction, but for stealing more than 50,000 credit cards. Jail is probably the safest spot for him!
