Joven hacker de 19 años se volvió millonario reportando errores informáticos


Un joven hacker de 19 años llamado Santiago López aseguró que aprendió a realizar esta actividad viendo tutoriales por Internet, y ya obtuvo 1 millón de dólares reportando errores informáticos.

Este argentino se convirtió en el primer hacker ético, pues se encarga de hallar vulnerabilidades en los sistemas informáticos y los comunica a cambio de una recompensa.

Este tipo de expertos en ciberseguridad reciben entre 50 y 200 mil USD por los errores que consiguen. Todo depende de la magnitud del bug. Cuanto más grande sea el agujero en el sistema, mayor es la recompensa.

Esto es debido a que las compañías están al tanto de que esas fallas “en la matrix” pueden costarles mucho dinero. Es por ello que firmas como Apple, Google, Qualcomm y otros tantos gigantes tecnológicos cuentan con sistemas de recompensas para impulsar que estos hackers les informen sobre errores en sus programas.

El hacker de 19 años comenzó su travesía a los 16

López manifestó que a los 16 años cobró su primera recompensa por hallar un bug y que ya encontró más de 1.600 de estas fallas informáticas. En la actualidad, dedica unas 7 horas diarias a buscar agujeros en los programas.

Este joven contribuye con HackerOne desde el año 2015, esta es una plataforma de ciberseguridad que se especializa, justamente, en encontrar y corregir vulnerabilidades antes de que puedan ser explotadas por los “otros”, es decir, los hackers de “sombrero negro”.

“Empecé a hacer aplicaciones, programar. Y un día vi la película Hackers y me gustó cómo trabajaban y ganaban dinero, así que busqué tutoriales por Google, YouTube y aprendí a hackear”, manifestó el joven para HackerOne.

Respecto a lo que explicó el experto, la clave es ser autodidacta. Señaló que toda la información está en la web y es cuestión de buscarla y dedicar tiempo al aprendizaje. Por esta razón, sugiere a los que quieran dedicarse a esta área, que busquen tutoriales en Internet.

López expresó que se dedica a esta actividad porque gana mucho dinero y porque le resulta divertido. “Me gusta el desafío”. Con su trabajo, ya compró dos vehículos “y muchas cosas más”.

Pese a que hay mucha competencia, siempre existe lugar para hallar nuevos bugs. Los expertos en ciberseguridad están entre los más demandados del mercado.
