He is a genius :) Why don't they just hire him for their software systems security.

Oh sure: "Thanks for breaking our security systems on the PS3 and allowing people to run third party software, want to work for us?"

If he was able to hack the system then for sure he knows how to block it. I remember a story where a programmer created a virus and was spread all over the world. And you bet, one of the top anti-virus company hired him. :D

Except that the mistake that he discovered which allowed him to 'hack' his way into the system was nothing more than someone else' careless error. Something about using a constant value on a random number function, :p.

Black hats often realize that they can make more money, legally, if they become white hats.

"Some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn."

I agree with the Joker.
