An interview with a hacker

Me: So if you were going to hack, say, a recruitment website, would you hack a recruitment website with a candidate zone, where personal data is stored? Or would you hack a recruitment website that stores no personal data as it does not need a candidate zone to make its features work?


Putin (not his real name): Ah Darrenski, this is your famous British humour, that is why they call you mushroom da? Because you are a fungi.


Me: No, it’s a real question.


Putin (not his real name): I think you are a couple of dancers short of a ballet, but of course the recruitment website with the candidate zone I will hack. Why would I hack a site with no data?


Me: So glad we make recruitment websites without the need to store candidates’ data and have offered all past clients an update. I mean, we love Putin (not his real name) but having him rummage around in our servers is not so cool.


OK, so it is a bit of humour, or is it? Have a candidate zone for sanity, not vanity or the arrogance of your vendor’s desire to be a cyber geekboard warrior.
