Meet Jake, Microsoft’s youngest employee
The folks over at Microsoft have decided to make this kid their youngest employee. Why? Because recently, he managed to hack into the Xbox 360 servers for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and the company wants to develop his talent for safe and legal use.
Fourteen-year-old Jake (last name unknown), from Dublin, Ireland, cracked into the popular online game’s servers to set up a phishing scam and collect user information. If this kid’s smart enough to hack Microsoft’s system, just imagine how useful will he be for the company with a few years of intensive training. Who knows, he could be the next Bill Gates.
