A new computer and network security course at Merrimack College in North Andover, MA is teaching students how to be hackers and phreakers. Vance Poteat, associate professor of computer science at Merrimack College, teaches students the basics of both "hacking" (breaking into a computer) and "phreaking" (breaking into a phone). He also teaches students how to detect if someone has done it to them as well. Then they do it themselves and to each other in a lab setting. The goal is to prepare students for a career in network defense.

IMHO this is one big BS; I guess he would just present something found on the net, not the real skills.
