Kevin Mitnick was an infamous American computer hacker, security consultant, and author. He gained notoriety in the 1980s and 1990s for his hacking exploits, which led to him being placed on the FBI’s most wanted list. Mitnick was known for gaining unauthorized access to various computer systems, copying software illegally, and intercepting computer passwords and private emails.

Kevin Mitnick Obituary

Kevin David Mitnick, 59, passed away on Sunday, July 16, 2023, after a courageous fight against pancreatic cá¼€ncer. Kimberley Mitnick, Kevin’s devoted wife, survived him by staying by his side for the entirety of their experience. Kimberley is expecting the couple’s first child together. Kevin was overjoyed to start this next chapter of his life with Kimberley, but their happiness was cut tragically short.

Kevin’s grandmother, Reba Vartanian, father, Alan Mitnick, and half-brother, Adam Mitnick, were all gone before he was born. Kevin’s family includes his stepmother Nanci King, his great aunt Sophie “Chickie” Leventhal and her longtime partner Dr. Bob Berkowitz, and Kevin’s cousins Mitch Leventhal, Karen van den Berg, Jolie Mitnick, Mark Mitnick, and Wendy Cohen. His brother-in-law Ricky Barry and his wife Roxy also survive him, along with their three children, Millie, Winston, and George.

Net Worth

Throughout his life, Mitnick gained notoriety for his hacking exploits, landing him on the FBI’s most wanted list and leading to his arrest and imprisonment. His net worth remained undisclosed as he shifted his focus to cybersecurity consulting, public speaking, and authoring books about his adventures. Web portals range his net worth from $5 million to $20 million.

Mitnick was known for serving several stints in prison, including eight months in solitary, after hacking into cell phones and copying software unlawfully.

He wrote about his time on the FBI's Most Wanted List in his New York Times bestselling book The Ghost in the Wires: My Adventures as the World's Most Wanted Hacker.

Supporters argued that his crimes caused no real damage and that the punishment was unnecessary while prosecutors claimed that he could threaten national security with his wide access.

Mitnick's arrest sparked a Free Kevin movement which saw supporters rally for the man, who locals say appeared to be an average IT worker.

Kevin also wishes to thank his many devoted friends, including Michael Morris, Paul Dryman, Roy Eskapa, Shawn Nunley, Darci and Brianna Wood, Amy Gray, Alex Kasper (Kasperavicius), David Kennedy, David Fugate, Dr. Nick Spirtos, Stu Sjouwerman, and Apollo Robbins, for their unwavering friendship and support over the years.

All of Kevin’s close buddies would take too long to name here. He was incredibly lucky to have so many. I won’t even bother naming names. You made a huge impression on Kevin. Kevin was also appreciative of the millions of people around the world who supported the “FREE KEVIN” movement in the mid-to late-1990s.
