Mor info:

"The Justice Department and the U.S. Secret Service have handled the 
Jacobsen prosecution with unusual secrecy, and T-Mobile has been 
tight-lipped on how the hacker penetrated their systems. But two 
sources close to the case and a hacker friend of Jacobsen's who hosted 
some of his purloined files all point to the same security hole: a 
vulnerability discovered in early 2003 in the WebLogic application 
server produced by San Jose, California, company BEA Systems."
