I laugh, “A really good hacker could convince the computer system to print the data to a file, the hacker’s file. The hacker could then download the file, really delete the file and then make off with the data.”The lady nods yes and says, “So my computer people tell me. Now, what would the computer hacker do with the data?”It depends on the data. If the financial data indicated that the company was doing very well, then the hacker could buy company stock and sell it for a profit, after the data was publicly released and the company stock price went up. If the data indicated that the company was doing very poorly, then the hacker could sell short company stock and buy it back, for a profit, after the data was publicly released and the company stock price went down. If the data indicated that the company was doing just so so, then the hacker would probably not really gain anything for his clever work.”The lady then snaps at me, “You get your pay in company stock.”I sigh, “I talked with top management here, before I hired on. Top management is not terribly competent. I could tell that the offer to pay me in company stock was made, because the stock would shortly be worth a great deal less, perhaps even zero, worthless. Each time that I would get paid some company stock, I couldn’t sell it, because it was something called lettered stock, that isn’t supposed to be able to be sold until a certain time in the future. However, I could sell short the company stock, pledging the soon to be worth a lot less stock that I received. I’m not permitted to sell the company stock, my broker can. As the share price of the company stock fell, I had already received pretty much the full price of the shares that I received as my pay. I also used some of my earnings to short sell more stock. I made a little money on the deals.”The lady laughs, “You earned your agreed upon pay plus maybe 10% more. We could, theoretically, prosecute you, but the court would likely throw such a prosecution
