Hacking is good for your career

Robbing a bank was just the ticket for one Romanian hacker.

A Romanian hacker who stole cash from an Italian bank has become a star student at a local university and is being courted by several software security firms.

Gabriel Bogdan Ionescu is currently doing three years and one month's porridge in Bassone di Como for writing software to steal money from Poste Italiane's accounts.

Four months ago the 22-year-old enrolled in the Faculty of Engineering of the Politecnico di Milano, and passed exams in computer science and mathematical analysis with top marks.

The Italian press are a little concerned that software companies are lining up to hire the hacker when he gets out. It seems that trying to rob a bank was the best career move he ever made.
