    Perils of moonlighting as a hacker
    Microsoft employee was raided by FBI last week; are hackers working all
    over the software industry?
    Bob Sullivan
    Everybody does it; nobody wants to talk about it. Computer hackers "white
    hat" or "black hat" are among the brightest minds in the software
    industry, so many are hired by big-name software companies. Then they
    dance the awkward dance of dual identities, engineer by day, hacker by
    night. The consequences of a misstep in that dance can be severe, as a
    hacker calling himself VallaH learned last week. In his case, a visit from
    the FBI meant the end of his career at Microsoft, embarassment for the
    largest software company in the world, and a new focus on the role of
    hackers at work.
