    So... my computer got hacked last night. Some guy changed the password to our SBC yahoo. But luckily, my dad was able to call them and they worked things out.

    Today, I installed Zone Alarm (free one) to protect my computer, it seems to work just fine.

    Personally, I dislike hackers. I mean, it may seem "cool" to some but to me I just don't really care.

    So my question to you is, do you like hackers? Why or why not? Or are you a hacker?

    I read a thing on hacking.

    Hackers hack because they want to get to information because people don't want them too high class hackers atleast who have hacked the government and what not and they basically hack out of curiousity. I've never been hacked because I have one of the newest PCs on the market and I frequently reformat to avoid viruses.

    I don't really care about hackers basically.

    Anyways! I never really cared for hackers either, until last night. I still don't care too much anyway.

    Ya, usually if you do get hacked its easily eradicated unless you need to get a new computer then I can see how it would be really frusturating, but then there are people who say they get hacked when it is really just a virus and if you get a virus easily and you're virus protection didn't save you it means time for new software or for even a new computer anyway. ^.^

    Hackers are fine, as long as they stick to uncovering data the government wants to keep secret. When they start getting malicious - that's something else.

    Afterthought - they need to find a better hobby. :p

    You don't have ANY personal information on the computer? I think not!

    If you go to Ebay or buy stuff online, your information stays so you don't have to type it all again. Even if you can't see it, it's still there... somewhere.

    And what about passwords? They can look into your passwords, that's what the hacker did last night to me.

    I despise hackers, personally. Especially the kind who go into stuff like passwords for IM-accounts. They need to get a life, instead of ruining those of others.

    That's funny.

    I thought someone hacked into my MSN messenger one day too cause it kept logging me out and told me I logged into another computer. So I changed the password.

    ^_^;

    Plus, my friends don't know how to hack... they don't spend much time on the computer, so yeah.

    XD They did the whole, secret question thing. And somehow they knew it it was probably Jaime because we went out for like 4 months, but then I got my password back and changed the secret question question to something making fun of them I forget, I lolled when they got mad.

    sorry, but theres a big diffence there: All hackers are computer nerds, but not all computer nerds are hackers

    Personaly i don't care much about hackers, since they never really bothered me... The only kind of hacker i really don't like is those who does it just to destroy things

    I didnt read all the posts in this topic so this might've already been said but...
    You're thinking of a cracker, not a hacker. Crackers hack into computers maliciously, without reason, just to destroy/steal info/make your life miserable ect ect. But a true hacker (like myself) is not a freakin moron and hacks to help people, to find bugs in programs (a lot of hackers are beta testers) and patch holes in your PC so you WONT get hacked. Yah :smile-big Just letting you know, don't be prejeduice <--- severe typo XD :p

    Well yeah, that's true. Some hackers do hack to make the lives of others easier, and that's the only good type of hacker, and one that should be thanked, in my opinion.

    You guys have completely the wrong idea. Your so called "hackers" are probably people, most likely some kid who got bored then, just picked up a brute-force program from some website and used it against you. In that case, they'd be referred to as "crackers" anyway. They basically type in all the different combinations, based on dictionaries or symbol maps, that the password could be till it gets it right, there are other types, but I won't go into it.

    "Hackers" are just programmers, essentially. As someone already said, their job is to find flaws in the programming of other people and exploit them - to then report back to the company/other programmers to fix it.

    The idea of "hackers" has been totally blown up out of proportion by the media and Hollywood.

    Malicious hackers are often just retards using canned "hacking" programs or sending viruses created by other fools. The real hackers are those that expose flaws in security to protect against the retards.

    I hate hackers. I hate spyware, viruses and hackers. why do people do it? because people have no respect for anyone but themselves, they are so selfish that they will send out things that can take away someones privacy and ruin one of the most important parts of modern day society in america, our computers. I recently had to F disk my computer, and it pisses me off that i had to. but the worst part is how as soon as I brought my comp back up, i went on the internet to narutofan, hotmail, loserz (Online comic) and homestar and I already had spyware. THOSE SITES ARE RESPECTABLE, NO BODY SHOULD SEND VIRUSES TO UNDESERVING PEOPLE. If you are a hacker or make viruses and spyware I HOPE YOU ROT IN HELL YOU DISCUSTING EXCUSE FOR SLIME, IF I COULD I WOULD PERSONALLY KICK ALL OF YOUR ASSES SO YOU COULD GET WHAT HAS BEEN COMING TO YOU!!!!

    You said EXACTLY what I was about to say. :oh

    Most people hate hackers because of one bad experiance they had with them...Imo its stupid.

    If an american walks up your door step, rings your bell and shoots you in the kneecap for no reason you probably wouldn't say "I HATE AMERICANS" simply because the guy is American (or you'd be a racist O_o)...

    You'd probably say: "I HATE THE PSYCHO WHO SHOT ME IN THE KNEE FOR KNOW REASON WHAT SO EVER".

    But seeing as most people don't even know the word "hacking" isn't necessarely bad...they asume all hackers create trojans/virusses, and hack passwords.
    And hate them for that reason..
