Hacking - The True Meaning
The next person that refers to hacking in a negative light should be lined up in front of a firing squad and summarily executed.

Hackers are ingenious individuals that think outside the box to make things work.

Please don't confuse us with script kiddies, crackers, and the like.

A hacker is the same as the script kiddies, crackers, etc. The only useful "hacker" is the legitimate ones that work for Microsoft, symentec and all the companies to PREVENT others from hacking.

Main Entry: hack·er
Pronunciation: 'ha-k&r
Function: noun
1 : one that hacks
2 : a person who is inexperienced or unskilled at a particular activity <a tennis hacker>
3 : an expert at programming and solving problems with a computer
4 : a person who illegally gains access to and sometimes tampers with information in a computer system.
You hack my stuff and I will find you and shoot you!

btw, I like your little music site you got goin on there... was listening yesterday pretty cool.

OMG... I can't believe this.

Please provide me the dictionary that came from.

Tennis players have absolutely nothing to do with computers. Please refer to definition #3.

This one is even more appropriate... right out of Texas Law.
Hacker
A person who enjoys exploring the details of computers and how to stretch their capabilities. A malicious or inquisitive meddler who tries to discover information by poking around. A person who enjoys learning the details of programming systems and how to stretch their capabilities, as opposed to most users who prefer to learn on the minimum necessary.
I wish I had a Blacks Law dictionary handy. I'd love to see what it has to say about it.

I shall continue:

It's not Black's Law Dictionary, but it definitely speaks to the legally accepted definitions.
Hacker
1) According to The New Hacker's Dictionary a hacker is a clever computer programmer, who does not necessarily engage in illegal activities. 2) In the media, a Hacker refers to a person who illegally break in or attempts to break into a computer system. See Cracker.
Cracker
A cracker is one who engages in one or more of the following: 1) breaks into a computer system; 2) figures out ways to bypass security or license protection in software; 3) intentionally breaches computer security. Contrary to popular belief, Cracker is not synonymous with Hacker.
Please stop insulting me. I've been a hacker for the better part of 25 years.

i'm with you shelldude.

the media is mostly responsible for putting the hacker moniker on every malicious black hat op that comes across the pages.

i remember when being a hacker was an elite status reserved only for the most technically skilled. hackers are an intelligent, non-destructive (by definition) lot who did more in the early days of microcomputer hardware and software design than microsoft has in 3 revisions of "its" windows software.
if it ain't broke, break it.

Hacker vs. Cracker. That horse has left the barn in the 80's. I think we lost that battle once the media started using the word hacker with the negative connotation. I guess that is why the blackhat/whitehat hacker distinction was introduced. Believe me dude, I feel your pain, but it is time to move on.

You'd be amazed the "hacks" I've implemented over the years that have saved my employers literally billions of dollars at this point.

This isn't news. Every nerd who has ever wanted to pretend to be cool calls them self a hacker in the mischievous sense of the word. I think it is silly to refer to one's self as a hacker.

Havoc, then I'm a 35 year old kid who has been doing software and network engineering professionally for the past 18 years for no other reason than to make money?

Give me a break.
