According to the CTRC, Lee left the security company in late 2002 and lost himself in computer hacking and collecting pornography. Later, he sent a hacking program embedded in a photograph to a woman he had met online -- the hacking program was activated once the picture was opened on her computer. Lee is also charged with hacking 260,000 screen output data and keyboard input data at universities, public organizations and businesses.
Police say that Lee was skilled enough to break into his university computer network and forge school records in 2001. Police add that he may have sold information and that they are currently investigating that possibility. Universities that were targets of his hacking include well-known institutions like Seoul National University, Pohang University of Science and Technology and Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology.
