A celebrity computer hacker gained more notoriety after three online auction sites posted then removed from sale his prison ID card. The ID card of Kevin Mitnick is being offered on start-up auction site DutchBid.com after being rejected by Amazon.com, Yahoo! and e-Bay.

    Terms of his prison release prohibit him from having any contact with computers, but Mitnick said Thursday that his father, Alan, posted the items online.

    The posting lasted 36 hours on e-Bay and only a few hours on each of the other two sites, Mitnick said. Autographed "Free Kevin" bumper stickers also are for sale.
