Meet China's youngest hacker

The kid is widely renowned in China as a computer genius. However, what stands out most about him is his ability to crack through codes and systems.

Yes, Wang is one of the youngest hackers in the country, and his story is a remarkable one indeed.

It all began for the kid, as an attempt to get away from spending hours on doing homework. And so Wang hacked into the school’s online homework system and took the easy way out.

From there on, there’s been no looking back. He’s reportedly helped fix around 100 system bugs so far to ensure the computer systems are not vulnerable to attacks.

Wang most recently appeared at the China Internet Security Conference in Beijing, held from September 24 to 25, and became an instant hit with the crowds.

According to a Dalian Evening News report, he is currently enrolled as a first-year student in the high school attached to China’s prestigious Tsinghua University.
