After the PSN Phenomena Microsoft decides to be nice to hackers

Software giant, Microsoft has decided that Sony's get tough plans with hackers did not work and probably resulted in getting the Japanese outfit into more hot water. Instead, the cuddly Vole has decided that nurturing hackers, so that they love Microsoft, is a much better plan. Microsoft's General Manager in Ireland Paul Rellis revealed that the company had learned from Sony's heavy-handed response to the PS3 hacking and the subsequent network-wide outages that followed. Instead of doing a Sony and taking a 14-year old boy from Dublin, who attempted to break into the Xbox LIVE network, to the cleaners it is going to nuture his talents instead. The boy was responsible for an alert when Microsoft detected the intrusion and feared that personal information may have been compromised. Rellis revealed  that the Microsoft was working with the teenager to develop his talent and help him use his skills for legitimate purposes. This is more likely to get a positive response from the hacker community than Sony's public attempts to shut down and prosecute hackers like GeoHot and the Fail0verflow group for their part in bypassing the PS3's security measures.
Unfortunately, Rellis did not indicate what Vole was doing with the boy from Tallaght, or what they plan to do with him once his training is finished. A cynic would wonder if the boy has been sent to the Volehill never to be seen again.
