The add shouldn't surprise anyone.
We must be aware that the times we live in are more and more dominated by computers, and controlling that means having power.
I personally came from a country where people are aware of this , there are a lot of young people , computer geniuses , that live a good life from a
very young age, because of their knowledge.
At first they did e-bay scams, phishing schemes , they used to brake databases from where they took names, credit card details and so on.
Now, most of them , are concentrating on something else , either they target big companies , and enter their databases , or brake down their software
or something like this, but they are careful not to make any damage, and right after they done it, they contact the company telling them about the
breach and about the unsafe system. In most cases, the hacker ends up working for that company.
Others target foreign governments, either because they are to influenced by James Bond movies either because they are to naive or either because they
are to confident .
Also , in those cases, many end up working abroad , for the agency they attacked.
There were many cases when Pentagon computers were attacked , Nasa's and so on, many ended up being hired and paid nice money.
So you see, until now , hackers were the ones that were chasing a nice paid job by attacking systems, now , because of the times we live in, things
have changed, governments are chasing them, so that's why that add shouldn't came as a surprise to anyone
