         NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 6, 1998--Wanted: Hackers to break into
    the Justice Dept. computer network. Under a program known as Operation Get
    Cracking, the Justice Dept. sought members of the computer underground at
    late July's Def Con hackers' conference in Las Vegas, BUSINESS WEEK reports
    in its August 17 issue. Attorney General Janet Reno has quietly committed
    $1 million to hire up to 16 hackers to test the Department's networks, says
    a source at Justice, which would neither confirm nor deny the operation.
