« on: April 27, 2009, 01:10:59 AM »
I heard that the US governement is looking to hire hackers for vulnerability testing.

Just call the FBI, give them your hacking back ground and they will have some one contact you shortly.

oh ya, I'm sure the FBI would love to pay someone with hacking experience, a visit. 8)
Honestly I have no experience vulnerability testing systems, I actually heard that the US gov. would train.....don't know if it is true, just thought someone else might know something about it.
