There's a big difference between hiring a hacker to do a specific job,
and hiring someone then finding out he's hacking.  I guess it also
depends on whether you are defining a 'hacker' as a criminal hacker or
expanding it to include professionals.  Based on what I read at the URL
you provided, I would be very surprised if Intel hired a rogue criminal
hacker to test their security, but I can certainly see companies like
Intel hiring professional white-hat hackers or possibly x-"hackers" who
have learned their lesson to do the job.
