A poacher turned gamekeeper story that really resonates with our world.

Hackers aren’t always sophisticated foreign intelligence operatives, you don’t need state backing to start but most concerning to us is that you don’t need to be a high profile target to become a victim. These were young kids who ,probably innocently, enjoyed testing the security of the systems they came across which is how many hackers start.

It’s great to see them turning their backs on crime and working to help people and to make the internet a safer place.
