This same thing has been done in Vegas for years. Hire a card shark to catch a card shark. I was going to wonder why this same thing hasn't been done in homeland security with computer hackers, but then I realised that this is the U.S. government. They were never known for their smarts, except when it comes to stealing money from the taxpayers.

I know the US Govt. (all of US) would get better value by rewarding anyone that hacks into a "posted" system $10,000, that way as the site gets more secure the level of hackers able to collect would dwindle... Oh yeah, the winning hackers should have a choice of having their "user name" added to a special plaque on the space station or the $, I bet most would take the plaque..

This is what I would expect from the Bush/Cheney admin... SAFER country.... Those clowns were the biggest threat to American security abroad and at home... Finally someone that can think to get everything up to snuff and up to modern standards...

if only the republicans hadn't obstructed education and offshored programming jobs, maybe we would be a few steps ahead in this game...

Hackers aren't any more criminal than the normal run of humanity Having an ability or talent that can be misused doesn't mean one will use it badly. Unbunch your underwear.

This is not new. We did this for a government agency a long time ago, and as a result, they changed many of their procedures and methods.

There are many people out there employed by contractors that can do this work , and do an amazing job.

Great. But who is going to safeguard against the friendly hackers? Just sayin'.

Companies hire other criminals all the time in order to use their expertise. And, no, I'm not talking about bankers.

Good luck. Unless you completely recreate the internet ground-up DNS is always going to be a major vulnerability.

Decent hackers won't go to work for a bunch of Naziamericanbastards.

This is something I thought we already were doing - sort of makes me uncomfortable that we haven't already.
