i can see the point of finding flaws in a piece of software, however, energy would be better spent doing somethign productive with that kind of intellect rather than exploiting a loophole or flaw and subjecting yourself to bubba in the joint discovering your loophole.
if you really think someone is going to hire you based on your hack or virus, you arent as smart as you claim to be. sure, its possible, but its likely the media that makes you believe many or a majority of hackers end up getting good jobs out of it. most are 'script kiddies' just reproducing a very select few's works and getting in trouble for it, or not.
if you can actually code a virus or trojan, put your mind to work on something productive. I was once a teen, and I understand the 'i dont give a shizzz' attitude, but wake up... that isnt going anywhere, you are not in a movie and the chances of being 'discovered' are about as good as if you went to Hollywood to be an actor. however, if you are actually that ingenious, then likely you will have many a job offer if you actually put your skills towards finding a job or developing your own business. if you dont, then you will wallow in angst until you do so...
maybe some hacker admirers dont get what i am saying, oh well... but I would say to them, grow up and think about your future. If you want to have one outside the pen, then you will take those skills and do something more productive.
btw.... I read a post in this thread about MS hiring some of these peeps to help their systems be more secure in future dev... MS will ONLY hire people with bachelors or higher, not some hacker.
dang hackers and priams need to get a life
