Alibaba fires gluttons
Four Alibaba staff have been sacked after they hacked their employer company to score free mooncakes.
Alibaba's lauded security team took two hours to notice the staffers' unauthorised software which allowed the company's free mooncake giveaway to be abused so that the quartet received 124 boxes of the delicacy.
Chinese net users argued over the validity of the dismissals with some saying plundering mooncakes by any software-means-necessary is something of a game within the cubicles of the e-commerce giant. ®
