Kevin Mitnick kicked off AT&T network

In a surprise move by AT&T Kevin Mitnick (famous social engineering hacker) was told he was too difficult to protect by AT&T and his accounts terminated. Its funny that a corporation with so many customers would do such a thing to such a widly syndicated person. If I were AT&T I would take the oppprtunity to use Mitnick’s accounts as a honeypot adding extra monitoring so I could boost security, but instead it appears AT&T decided it was easier to boot him out. Makes me wary of using AT&T because it says to me they lack dedication and proper infosec strategy. Who am I though? I am only one voice in a very large crowd.
