Back in 2012, Higinio Ochoa III aka W0rmer was part of an Anonymous-affiliated hacker group called Cabin Cr3w breaking into police databases. A federal judge in Austin sentenced Higinio Ochoa III to 27 months in federal prison for hacking into computers of the Texas Department of Public Safety, the Alabama Department of Public Safety, Houston County, Alabama and the West Virginia Chiefs of Police Association.
When Higinio got out of prison for hacking in September of 2014, one of the terms of his parole was that he is not allowed to use any internet connected device.
Higinio Ochoa III is a 33-year-old programmer. He lives in Austin with his wife, Kylie, and his son, Brody. He wakes up every morning at about 6 a.m., and shuffles into his “lab,” an office festooned with computers, a server, virtual machines. He pulls himself up to the desk and begins to program. There’s just one thing that makes him different from not only every programmer in the world, but every computer user in the world.
“I’m not to touch any computer, smartphone or device that has Internet connectivity,” Higinio says. “That would be against my rules.”
