Well there was this hacker group in Romania that made viruses. They ended up turning around and now have a virus defender software.
They could've kept going making viruses and shut down the whole internet they were that good but no, they now kill the viruses they first created. They know how to make them so they are perfect to be the ones to stop them.
The best programmers started off as hackers. So its stupid not to hire good hackers.
Didn't Facebook hire GeoHot? And Microsoft gave him a Windows phone. He must've done something right for 2 big companies to be interested in him. He's proven he's a good hacker by hacking the so called unhackable console. Sony's stupidest move was to sue him and not hire him.
Thats also the problem with Sony. They are run by stupid people with too much money.
