Remember last year's breach on Sony's network that knocked off online support for weeks last year? Well, the hacker responsible is now getting the VIP treatment from the company who lost millions of dollars due to his online antics.
The hacker, named George Holtz (what kind of cool hacker name is that?), was invited to Sony Computer Entertainment's headquarters months after the attacks to discuss how exactly he pulled off a feat that angered millions of online Call of Duty players.
According to Holtz, he "found a roomful of PS3 engineers who were 'respectful'" that "wanted to learn more about how he had beaten their system."
After he finished discussing how he pulled it off, Holtz was given a personal tour of the company's basement, in which he was never seen again.
