A Former systems administrator on a Navy nuclear aircraft carrier has been charged with conspiring to hack into government systems during a digital joy ride that spanned several months in 2012.

Nicholas Paul Knight, 27, who referred to himself as a “nuclear black hat,” was discharged from the Navy after he allegedly attempted to hack into a Naval database while at sea serving as a systems administrator in the nuclear reactor department aboard the U.S.S. Harry S. Truman.
