    Re: Hackers

    the answer to all your questions are simple, its fun, it is all the rush of breaking through the defenses and getting what you need. Most do it only for the fun of it, not to harm or hurt anyone. You can’t judge the entire group the few bad apples. If you want to protect your self simply be safe like you would on the street, don’t talk to strangers and don’t take things that are not yours. (And especially play nice with others)

    Positive: ...well, sometimes courts won't handle certain cases of abuse, and people certainly do deserve it at times...
    It also makes our computer companies stronger by developing stronger and more effecient anti-viruses and anti-hacking softwares.
    ... and... er... hackers are nice people. ^_^;; Once you get to know them. Eheheheh... heh...

    Negative: ........ when they do it just because they're bored, it can be rather... disruptive.

    They're either bored, or angry. XD Trust me.
    Unless of course, they work for an organization themselves... y'know... get some money, or something of even more worth: Information.

    ... wait, are you talking about individuals or large organizations?
    Because as of recently, FBI's hidden files are rather easy to obtain..
    Organizations are pretty easy to hit... but don't forget that even agents hack against crime.
    ... it's easy... you don't really have to lure, you have to hunt.

    ._. Individuals however, are easy because they're rather stupid to think that they're completely safe, or they think it's okay to talk down on people.

    ........ I'll give you the best: Be friends with them, or be one of them. ^_^

    ...obviously, whatever the hacker decides to damage. XD

    i think hacker are both good and bad but mostly good because there more
    about doing it for the thrill then anything just to prove they can do it
    and they bad side is they cost alot of big busness money

    1. Good sides are that if hacker really is what his name tells, she/he just goes in
    leaves message and fades away. That way companies can find out that their
    www-sites/servers are leacking and get better protection.
    2. If we are talking about hacker, not cracker, he just wants to try if he can do it.
    Crackers do that for money, and for glory.
    3. By hackers...use no protection and they lost interest. By cracker...use as high
    protection as possible.
    5. By hackers...only damage to your reputation as company that has high
    protection at their servers...
    Damage by crackers: alot of information worth of money. Cred-card numbers and etc.


    Note: Hacker ain't same as cracker. Hacker just brakes in to see if he can do it.
    Cracker tries to inflict damage and get something worth of cash.


    Love hurts...trust me I know, I really do...

    I don't think anyone's pointed out the fact that some firewall developers hire hackers/crackers/whatever to attack their firewalls just to see if there's anything wrong with it. If someone manages to penetrate the firewall, he points out the problem and it will be fixed. So hackers can be useful too.

    Other than that, all hackers suck donkeyballs...

    Yup, company like F-Secure has alot of former hackers/crackers and virus-designers
    on they payroll in order to check their firewall/virus scan.

    And if I remember correctly every 2-4 years there in competition where hackers
    can try to break through best firewall in world. If they can do it they must tell
    how they did that, and they get 1 000 000$ and job in the company that made the
    firewall.
