A large group of people often called "hackers" have been characterized as.
unethical, irresponsible, and a serious danger to society for actions related to breaking.
into computer systems. This essay brings to construction a picture of what is a computer.
crime as well as a portray of hackers, their concerns and the way in which hacking takes.
place. What I intend to argue is that, in their majority, hackers are learners and explorers.
who want to help rather than cause damage. .
What is hacker? The term "hacker" of course has various meanings. Sometimes it.
implies a computer programmer who spends a lot of hours working on a personal.
computer, working on different types of coding, and creating technological "fixes" and.
"patches" for existing software. This kind of activity is not illegal and is encourage by the.
employers. In a different sense, the term hacking is used to signify criminal activity, the.
effort of the person to perpetrate through a personal computer for the purpose of unlawful.
activities. In other words, hackers are anyone who brakes into a computer without.
authorization. This type of hacking shows the necessity for new security systems and.
legislation to protect people and enterprises from these activities. .
Hacking really came into existence after 1980s as a result of telecommunication.
growth as well as high computer literacy. Hacking include a broad-range of.
computer-helped activities. Some of them are legal other unlawful and a lot are.
unethical. Some experts are saying: hacking is a phenomenon. One thing people get.
confused about is that hacking is totally different from fraud. Fraud is a human activity.
which one person tries to take advantage of others. Finally we can say that all hackers.
cannot be characterized as nasty or a nuisance. We should all bear in mind that it is very.
risky to connect a computer system to a network, especially the Internet, when there are.
not protected by all the security systems from hacking.
