This is the question that is on everyone's mind, is Facebook hiring a hacker? Facebook has confirmed that they are hiring known hacker "GeoHot". Why was he hired and what will he be doing? No one knows for sure but we can tell you what "GeoHot" has done to earn his face.
GeoHot, was recently sued by Sony for hacking into the company's PS3 console. He was also the first person to announce that he had found a way to hack into the iPhone. He just recently reached a settlement with Sony in regards to the hacking incident.
When he hacked into the PS3 game console he released information that would allow people to play pirated games on the system. Some people felt that the information he released was allowing the users of the console to have more freedom to do with their consoles what they wanted to do.
During the trial a group began to attack the network as a way of protesting the case. It was messy and a lot of accounts had been tampered with but everything has been resolved and now Facebook has taken on this world renowned hacker into their company.
What will this hacker do for Facebook? We don't know yet, but we will let you know when we do.
