One of the first hacker cases in Denmark led to the creation of DKCERT: the attack by Jub Jub Bird and Sprocket.

Armed with a couple of Amiga computers and a PC, these two young men hacked into the network of UNI-C in 1989. UNI-C was the national IT centre for research and education and operated a national Ethernet-based network.

The hackers used modems to call computers at UNI-C. By guessing passwords they managed to get access to the network and its computers.
