Chapter 481: What I’ve Been Looking For Came Knocking (Part Two)
Stenson nodded. “Found them, but I haven’t verified how skilled they are yet myself. Boss, what do you want those people for? In fact, you can just spend some money and find a bunch at Silicon Valley; why do you want to look for those that think they are above the common system and like to work by themselves? You don’t know? These guys all look like ordinary people, but on the world online, they deem themselves as gods restricted by no laws or moral values! These types of rangers can’t even be brought by the government, do you think you can tame them?”
Xu Cheng turned around and looked at him. “Do you know why these guys don’t want to work for other people, even if it’s the government? Because they want freedom! How do you feel the president is living right now? He can’t even browse online or go anywhere freely, and he must follow strict protocols. The government would only restrict the hands of these rangers. If you were them, you crave freedom and yet your hands are tied, would you still be happy to work for others even if they pay you a fortune? Do you know why I want to find these kinds of lone wolves? Because they are strong enough to fight wars online by themselves and that’s why they dislike working as a part of an organization for an employer.”
Stenson appeared to be in a daze as he tried to understand the explanation, and he slowly said, “I couldn’t find many. The good ones were already collected by the government. Some people in the hacker community also laughed at me, saying that a top-tier hacker wouldn’t allow their identity to be exposed. If the hacker’s exposed in real life, then that means this hacker is no longer top-notch!”
Xu Cheng nodded. “Makes sense. So, is this the reason you couldn’t find anyone capable?”
Stenson bitterly smiled. “It’s really difficult to find. The world of hackers is a lot more complicated than the outside world. If we want to find them, we might have to understand programming and enter the same world as them. But Boss, can I ask one thing, what do you need them for?”
Xu Cheng glared at him.
Stenson’s hair rose immediately and he didn’t dare to ask more.
At this time, his phone rang.
It was an unfamiliar number.
He picked up.
“Is it Mr. Stenson?”
“I am, who is this?”
“I want to cure cancer, what’s the price?” a hoarse voice said over the phone, followed by coughing.
“What?” Stenson frowned. “I don’t know what you are talking about.”
“Don’t play pretend anymore. That anonymous email you sent to Senator Jerry, I saw it. Although it was deleted now, I could still find it in the mail company’s HQ’s database. I know it was you that sent him the invitation, and he’s living really well right now. I want a healthy body, can you do it? You can name the price, and I will get the money.”
“This isn’t a question of money. I can’t explain it to you too.” Stenson was anxious. He didn’t know how his boss really cured Senator Jerry so he could only put the phone on mute and ask Xu Cheng, “Boss, someone wants you to cure him, are we taking this case or not?”
“No, this matter cannot be leaked to the public!” Xu Cheng said impatiently.
Stenson immediately hung up.
At this time, Xu Cheng’s phone rang.
After Xu Cheng picked it up, he just heard a hoarse voice speaking, “Mr. Xu, you should be the boss that was saved on Mr. Stenson’s contact list, right? I apologize for hacking into the telecommunication company’s database to find the user information on his mobile end. I want to cure my body, can you please help?”
Xu Cheng originally wanted to hang up, but he realized what this guy just said and a smile immediately appeared on his face.
Oh boy, within just a minute of Stenson hanging up, that guy already went into the telecommunication company’s database and found the contacts Stenson saved on the cloud drive and found his number.(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
