Re: Progressive
The concept of hiring hackers is not new, but this new wave of them being hired by consumer product manufacturers who have public safety at stake is new. These are industries that didn't know the difference between a white hat or a black hat, and now are beginning to get the fact that they need to have someone hacking away at their stuff before the bad guys do and someone gets hurt.

Of course, none of this is new, but still not that common.  About 11 years ago, in the wake of the Blaster worm, Microsoft execs travelled to Poland and outright recruited The Last Stage of Delirium -- the hacking group that brought the worm to light.

The move was very progressive at the time -- and still is.  These days, there's a lot of disincentive for white-hat hackers thanks to the CFAA.
