George Hotz

George Hotz is a 22-year-old hacker best known for "jailbreaking" the iPhone and hacking the PlayStation 3, which led to a showdown with Sony Corp.

Sony sued Hotz, which resulted in a settlement forbidding Hotz from hacking Sony products. The hacking group Anonymous took up Hotz's cause, retaliating with attacks against the company. He was later hired by Facebook.
