Famous Data Leaker Hired to Work Around Russian Web DataS

The saga of the globetrotting NSA leaker continues. Despite being the most famous data leaker in the entire world right now, American fugitive Edward Snowden has been hired to help maintain a Russian web company. We suppose everyone deserves a second chance.

ABC News reports that Snowden attorney Anatoly Kucherena confirmed his client will begin working at a social media website on Friday. Though Kucherena wouldn't give the name of the exact site, Russian news outlet Digit.ru noted that "the only major net resource not to deny hiring" Snowden is VKontakte.ru, a social networking site similar to Facebook.

VKontakte's founder, Pavel Durov, publicly offered Snowden a job in August, but a spokesperson for the company has since declined to comment on whether Snowden is now an employee.
