The famous PS3 and iPhone hacker has got a job at none other than Facebook now.

George Hotz, the man best known for jailbreaking activities on iPhone and PS3, has reportedly got a job with social networking giant Facebook. GeoHotz became famous when Sony PS3 was patched up, so that other OS would not be installed on it and then he hacked a way to still install them on Sony’s machine. He got more and more famous for his work on cracking security measures in past years and this January Microsoft even approached him with Windows Phone 7 handset to get some good insights from him.

But for the first time Hotz has accepted a job offer, and it is with the social media giant: Facebook. “Facebook is really an amazing place to work…first hackathon over,” is the only comment to commune from ‘GeoHot’ so far, though he has also told those in his circle that he wishes to stay out of the public limelight as much as possible. Lets see what services he offers Facebook with his expertise.
