wow, long to read, will read it Razz
but i just wonder how does a kid that is stupid enough to install a fake keygen knows how to do reverse engineering on a program (and somehow the code sent him to an IRC chat room? what the hell? xD who would put an IRC chat room into a malware's code? XD LOL, and ofcourse the guy was monitoring the chat room, he was spending all his free time to see if someone discovered the chatroom in his wc3 malware code, lmao)
oh, and then he went from knowing how does an infected keygen works to know how to put keyloggers in Valve's PCs somehow so fast that he still was a kid.


so i wonder if this is just some fanfic about valve (LOL XD) or if some of you believe it?

Interesting read. It was pretty smart how he broke into Valve's servers.I feel sory for him, but in a way i know that he deserves the punishment.

eeeyup, i think this is a fanfic xD'

i mean, before the interview he says "I was not the brightest kid back then"(just proving that he was a kid), and after that when the policeman wake him up he goes to the kitchen eats something and smokes a cigarette, a kid?
and a lot of other things that do not make sense, lol. Like if someone could break into Valve's network and then be stupid enough to think that hacking into a company would be a good curriculum for that same company to hire him, LMAO
oh yeah, and the company was going to hire a kid? rofl
