The Million-Dollar Hacker
Tommy DeVoss used to break into websites illicitly. But after serving time for his crimes, he now uses his skills to earn an honest living. Through arrangements known as bug bounty programs, companies pay him to find security holes in their systems. He’s now earned more than $1 million in this emerging profession. This is an episode of Next Jobs, a mini-documentary series about careers of the future hosted by Bloomberg Technology’s Aki Ito.
