FBI's Most Wanted: Cyber Special Agents

To battle hackers, you have to think like one. The FBI said it [is] seeking technology experts -- including those with experience in "ethical hacking" -- to become "cyber special agents."

"Cyber permeates every aspect of what we do, whether it's counterterrorism, criminal investigations or traditional cyberattacks, as we've seen in the recent past," the FBI said.

North Korea, for example, is at the center of a confrontation with the United States over the hacking of Sony Pictures. The hacking is believed tied to Sony's movie "The Interview" about the assassination of North Korea's leader.
