When was the first known hacking? According to Internet sources, the first bona fide case of someone subverting information technology for malicious purposes occurred in 1903. It happened when Magician and Inventor Nevil Maskelyne gained unauthorized access to a supposedly secure system to thwart John Ambrose Fleming's public demonstration of Guglielmo Marconi's secure wireless telegraphy technology. After successfully negotiating Guglielmo’s security he proceeded to send insulting Morse Code messages through the auditorium's projector.
