In the mid-1990s, Politehnica University of Bucharest hosted some of the world's greatest hackers at that time. They would often bribe the doorkeeper with cheap vodka to let them enter the infamous ED011 computer lab. Late into the night, quietly, with their computer screens dimmed, the students challenged themselves to hack NASA, the Pentagon, and the US Army. Legend has it that the US Embassy got so mad that it called the Romanian president at that time, Ion Iliescu, complaining about the students.
