Hiring a Hacker
« on: March 25, 2009, 03:47:35 PM »
A top New Zealand telecommunications company has hired a teenager who admitted to taking part in an international cyber-crime network.

TelstraClear said former hacker Owen Thor Walker was advising corporate customers on internet crime.

Mr Walker had been at the centre of a criminal network that infiltrated more than a million computers globally.

He was investigated by the authorities in the US, Europe and New Zealand while he was just 16 and still at school.

As well as taking part in an advertising campaign, Mr Walker had delivered a series of seminars to help senior executives and customers understand the security threats to their networks, said TelstraClear spokesman Chris Mirams.

"It was really just ... to let them know the type of cyber threats that are out there, developing," said Mr Mirams, according to the Associated Press news agency. - BBC

So now he's on the advocacy against  cyber crimes.  :)

What happened to the filipino from AMA who authored the "love bug virus" who was reportedly hired by a software company in Britain?

everytime nga makabasa ko ug AMA makahinumdom dayon ko sa akoang failure nga grade sa "Data Structures" nako nga class. sa laboratory namo mismo nasudlan ug "AMA Quezon City" nga virus (forgot the name) then na-infect akoa source codes para sa amoa exams unta to then ang resulta dli modawat amoa lab teacher then got a 3.1 final grade. ew!!!  >:(  that was 2002 man tngali... wla pa man ang USB that time so diskette ra jud ang saligan.

hopefully nahimo na nga straight ang utok sa author adto nga virus, maayo nalang sad gani kay wala na nako ang infected nga files by the time mi-takeup ko ug "virus" class sauna.... anyway, past is past...  8) | | | | |
