He should work for Homeland Security

Frank Janosko was sentenced to 18 months for hacking a prison computer while he was incarcerated at the Plymouth County Correctional Facility (PFFC) in Plymouth, Massachusetts. He was granted access to the "thin client" computer that only ran a program to allow inmates to do legal research. Mr. Janosko used a quirk in the software to send email and find information on over a thousand PFFC employees. I talked Monday about the U.S. government having trouble finding people with cyber security skills. This guys looks like a natural born pentester. Maybe they should hire him.
