A special team of cyber hackers will be coming together as Veteran US hackers will meet up with their counterparts in China to form an alliance. It is hoped that this coming together that was announced at DefCon, Las Vegas will be able to shed some light on how these people work.
The team of hackers is no strangers to cracking things such as software, web browsers, smartphones and even power plants — yes we have seen it in Die Hard 4. There has always been this stigma surrounding hackers, but most just want to draw attention at how vulnerable the systems are that we take for granted each day.
In an article on The Economic Times, they go in to detail about how the publics perception has now started to change, maybe they felt that these hackers can help to develop more secure web browsers and smartphones — the two things that we use the most each day?
Knowing that some of these hackers are no longer sitting in their basement and attending conferences such as DefCon has certainly painted a new image, and this latest coming together in China is seen as the next positive step.
