177w ago - A few weeks back we reported that Sony was hiring IP investigators as part of forming a PS3 anti-piracy program, and today Dutch site PSX-Sense (linked above) reports that they may also be recruiting PlayStation 3 hackers as well.

According to rumor, Sarah McRae [Register or Login to view links] Koushik Dutta regarding a Software Engineer position that is opening at SCEA.

To quote, roughly translated: Something we wouldn't expect from Sony; they are recruiting hackers for a job at SCEA. A hacker named Koush got an e-mail, which is 100% real, from Sarah McRae which works onsite at the Talent Acquisition department.

He had been asked for a job at the R&D Departmen at Sony, we're sure Koushik isn't the only hacker which has been contacted by Sony. As a proof Koush posted a screenshot of the e-mail.

Anyone can make up an email like this. I do know that large corporations have long been recruiting hackers for anti-virus, spy-ware, anti hacking software and network security. It is possible they did offer him a chance at a position.

I checked wth Sony. It is not a fake.
You checked with Sony? I guess that reply is a confirmation this is real? C'mome man! Anybody can make that statement. It may very well be real but I'm still a little skeptical myself.

Also, she asked to communicate via phone. She could have very well done that via his email address she used in this communication.
