That's true...if you know a way to spread millions of emails and cripple billion dollar corporations, then yea. You're sitting pretty after 10-12 years in jail. I expect that one spammer they caught at the end of May will have a job once he's out.
However the kid that hacked in your company, yea, he'll have a tough time unless he gets a job at iDefense or for the government. If you're a white hat you can still make dough.
However I don't see this much as new concepts. Technically this stuff has been on the market for years. Look at LC4 and anything termed for "Penetration Testing". Pen Tests are the same idea as hacking. Just depends on if you're a white hat or a black hat doing it. The only thing new about it is that the black hats are selling rather than security businesses.
