Computer Geek Dream Job?

"Meet The Hackers Who Sell Spies The Tools To Crack Your PC (And Get Paid Six-Figure Fees)" full story at Forbes:
Bekrar won’t detail Vupen’s exact pricing, but analysts at Frost & Sullivan, which named Vupen the 2011 Entrepreneurial Company of the Year in vulnerability research, say that Vupen’s clients pay around $100,000 annually for a subscription plan, which gives them the privilege of shopping for Vupen’s techniques.

Note that $100k just lets you see the catolog, doesn't actually pay for any product, from what the story suggests the products can easily cost more than $100k.

What surprised me, is that this is legit, or so the story says, I don't understand how that can be, since they are hacking one company's products for other companies & governments.

A very interesting article.
