Hacker Kevin Mitnick was ordered held without bond by a federal magistrate in Raleigh, N.C. Mitnick was arrested Wednesday in Raleigh and faces up to 35 years in prison and $500,000 in fines if he is convicted of computer fraud and illegal use of a telephone device.

The FBI says that Mitnick's online exploits included breaking into computer systems to steal 20,000 credit card numbers belonging to subscribers of Netcom, an internet provider.
