This 18-year-old’s hacking side hustle has earned him $100,000 — and it’s legal

Sam Curry, an 18-year-old student in Lincoln, Neb., has been obsessed with computers from a young age, but his hobby wasn’t always a constructive one.

As a sophomore in high school, he got in trouble for hacking into his school’s computers. He found a way into the system that allowed him to pose as an administrator. He could have changed student grades or done real damage, he said, but just wanted to enter the network as a prank. School administrators were not amused, and suspended him for two weeks.

The next time he found a security vulnerability, rather than exploiting it, he reported it to the high school administration.
