How Facebook Finds Software Engineers

Reportedly, there is a bug where if you run PHP as a CGI script you can simply add ?-s at the end of a website and see their source code. Need an example? Check out Sony. Not good from a security standpoint.

I like what Facebook did. If you were to run on their site, you'll get a little snippet of fake PHP with a URL. Follow that URL and you're brought on their career page, for software engineers. Quite clever. (Facebook is actually so big, that they've converted their PHP to C++ anyway).
