    What a moron. I would give him a lifetime job as a chambermaid - with matching uniform of course :)

    He might have landed the job if he had gone about it differently. He should have initially approached them as a security expert and invited them to accept a challenge that if he could hack in to their system and therefore prove that it had vulnerabilities not being addresses by their current IT people - and that the operation would all be done in the strictest confidence with concise logs of every action - would they consider him for a highly paid job protecting their security from such loopholes.

    Actually I feel a bit sorry for the poor sod as I bet that's exactly what he was trying to do - just got the way round a bit muddled!
