I won't touch on the possible misuse of the term "hacker" in this article, since i haven't even read it yet, but anyway. I think they better watch themselves closley. If I was in one of these hackers' possition, I would be getting anything out i could, creating back doors, and anything else i could safley get away with. The feds better make sure they know what they are doing, and they stay up on the game. they wouldn't want to let the hackers take over totally, but it would be a great job.
BTW, anyone see that movie, "hackers". in my opinion it was one of the most incorectly orchostrated movies I've ever seen.
that movie was an embarrasment to computer geeks worldwide. I watched it once and laughed so hard. That's hollywood for you.
i thought angelina jolie put on a pretty nice show )
clothes on and clothes off, lol
i love her, i want her to have my children
Feds meet with hackers
if i was a hacker, and was good, i wouldnt mind working for the government as long as it payed real well
lol , they're remaking the 'Mod' squad with hackers.
It's a little worrysome giving them access like this though, I mean the whole reason they need these hackers is because they can't stop them and there now giving them unlimited close-up time with the software.
Well the idea is that they'd stay on the good side as long as you're paying them. I mean, if you do something malicious, you're not gonna be on the payroll for long... I'd like the idea of a steady income if I were them.
Hackers was unrealistic?? Y amean you can't hack into systems with Pine!?!? God I hate that movie
This reminds me of a book by Tom Clancy (forgot which now) where some hacker gets paid by another country to put a line of code in the SEC's computer program so every transaction just shows up as AAA 000 so no one can tell how much money they have and where
Considering that the feds arranged to invite
russian hackers /crackers to the us to speak at a conference or to become employed and then busted them doesn't mean that they won't give some hackers a job or does it just mean that they get a shot at the geeks boxes and brains and a long term leash on them?
I like hackers, don't get me wrong. But from their side, do they really want the people smarter than they are placing all sorts of booby traps in the code (if they're even being allowed that close to it)? I know that if I were allowed that close to it I'd slip in everything I could get away with, maybe even some things I couldn't, just to see what happened.
Just because these people haven't been caught "crossing the line", does that mean they haven't?
