Phone hacker sues bank for payment

Having been prosecuted and then discharged without conviction for hacking the Reserve Bank of New Zealand's telephone system, Gerry Macridis is now threatening legal action to be paid $7,500 for his unsolicited security advice. Gerry claims to have acted honourably by identifying security flaws in the bank's system and advised them of what they needed do to to resolve them. I've never met Gerry and based on the news reports I have no reason to doubt his integrity but his somewhat naive and direct approach must be a thorn in the bank's side.
