Tech companies often hire hackers so that they could use their skills to devise better security measures. This often works since it takes a close knowledge of vulnerabilities to be able to patch them – and these hackers know them very well. One such hacker, Charlie Miller, has become a part of Twitter’s security team now.


Charlie Miller

Charlie Miller is widely known in the iOS world as a mastermind who has been able to figure out many security flaws in iOS. Miller wrote from his Twitter account, “Monday I start on the security team at Twitter. Looking forward to working with a great team there!”

Apparently, Twitter is trying to find out vulnerabilities that may exist in its systems and then fix them. Hiring Miller may be a part of this strategy. Miller has many achievements to his name. He was able to exploit an iPhone through its browser and compromised a MacBook Air within two minutes. He has tested out the security systems of many security firms in the past and won the Pwn2Own hacking competition in Vancouver.

When it comes to iPhone, Miller has many landmark hacks to his name. For instance, back in 2009, he was able to hijack an iPhone with the help of a text message. He was also able to have an iOS app added to the App Store despite all Apple security measures. Apple later revoked his developer license for having done so.

In recent months, we have seen Twitter go to great pains to ensure the privacy and security of its users’ data, something which is highly commendable. Hiring Miller also shows that it is serious in its commitment to safeguard the data. It is very significant in that Miller represents that elite crop of hackers which can virtually break into any system – and by having him on board, we can surely expect that Twitter will be far more secure in the coming days.
