Defense and intelligence contractor Raytheon is moving into the 
lucrative realm of cyber warfare, and wants to hire hundreds of =E2=80=9Ccyber 
warriors=E2=80=9D to =E2=80=9Cplay offense and defense,=E2=80=9D according to an advertisement 
on the company=E2=80=99s web site.

=E2=80=9CPresident Obama recently announced that cyber security is one of our 
country=E2=80=99s most urgent national security priorities,=E2=80=9D reads the ad. 
=E2=80=9CRaytheon is answering that call by hiring more cyber warriors this year 
to help fight the digital cyber war.=E2=80=9D

The ad says the company has 250 positions available in its Intelligence 
and Information Systems (IIS) division. The jobs are for, among others, 
reverse engineers, kernel developers, and vulnerability and intrusion 
detection engineers. Raytheon also has positions available for something 
called =E2=80=9Cmedia sanitation specialists.=E2=80=9D

The latter probably refers to workers skilled at erasing data from hard 
drives and other storage, rather than to workers capable of spinning the 
company=E2=80=99s message to journalists.  But Raytheon did not respond to a 
call seeking clarification.
