Hackers and how many of us are mis-represented

Post by Spooky_Zalost on Thu Jul 14, 2011 3:53 am

to start off what is the first thing you think of when you hear the word hacker?

my guess would be something along the lines of... (Evil Monsters breaking into the gov and messing up my facebook/website/internets/computer)

well believe it or not the majority of these so called "hackers" are really just what we in the Technology Enthusiast hobby like to call "script kiddies" and "Crackers" because they don't really hack anything they just break into things and the majority of them don't even write their own code which is why it's easier to stop them now.

the real hackers are ones who enjoy toying with technology and are just trying to learn more, a kind of curiosity that is for the most part harmless.

sure they may break into your system but it's not likely they will do any harm, In fact they may give you information on the security exploit they used and how to patch it!

unfortunately this is frowned upon because people have the wrong image in their minds and fear hackers even when they are just being helpful and offering free advice!

remember these words friends because they are all too real.

mmmhhmm....well in the south Australian education system at least they are trying to teach the difference between hackers and crackers (doesn't that sound racist Razz ) because in my IT class we actually had a whole week devoted to looking into this exact subject. Much was learnt.

Now if only IT wasn't a non-compulsory subject.....

you know you should try exploring your local Systems and networks, lots of interesting things are revealed Smile and in Australia I'm sure it's not as secure as here in the United States
