The report comes from Herald.ie and states that a Dublin teen “was responsible for millions of computer users being alerted after the popular online game Modern Warfare 2 was hacked.” The story is about aloof on direct details as it refers to the Microsoft Xbox in most of the story but refers to computers being hacked, not the actual console.
But, rather than lambasting the young teen and revoking his access to the Internet or other punishment, Microsoft is now working with the teen to help develop his skills. The Herald states:
While this shouldn’t be an open invitation to hack any company in an attempt to land a job, it is an encouraging sign that Microsoft wants to help the teen develop skills that are more useful to society. Also, unlike Sony who took Geohot to court after he cracked the PS3, Microsoft is helping to grow the next generation of engineers who will help bring about the next wave of computer innovation.
Wow, love Microsoft, they’ve got balls unlike Sony.
