Orome1 writes "If you are being held to ransom by someone claiming to have control of your infrastructure, and demanding payment to prevent further damage or exposure, then you need to contact the relevant authorities. However, if you want to prevent criminals from hijacking your systems then perhaps a hacker is exactly the person you need for the job. It’s only natural to use the tool that’s been perfectly designed for the job yet, for some reason, when it comes to securing the corporate infrastructure, many are frightened by the idea of hiring a hacker. They’re missing out. Would you hire a hacker?"
