GCHQ Recruits 35 Phone Hackers On Twitter And Facebook: Can You Crack Milly Dowler’s Phone?

by | 1st, December 2011

THE News of The World may be dead, but you spooks and spies can still get work at MI6. GCHQ is recruiting 35 new code-breakers on the “Can You Crack It?” web page.

Crack the code and win the right to be trained up to snoop on members of the public, and have your mysterious death swept under the carpet and your name and reputation muddied.

Says a GCHQ spokesman:

“Code cracking skills are vital to secure the very best talent and to support the GCHQ mission in its fight against cyber threats. Our target audience is not typically attracted to traditional advertising methods and may be unaware that we are recruiting for these kinds of roles.”

Anyone who gets an interview may like to ask the shiny suits at GCHQ: who trained the spies that hacked Milly Dowler’s voicemail? You may not get the job – but you might get a Pulitzer Prize…
