WHAT IS HACKING?

Hacking, every so often known as "computer crime" has only in recent times been taken very seriously. The behavior undertaken by the real hackers have been criminalized and they are now being lawfully persecuted on a scale disproportional to the concrete danger they pose.

For those who don't know better, a hacker, by wrong-definition, can be whatever thing from a computer-user to a big name who destroys all they can get their evil terminals into.

Real hackers want their motivations and ethics to be viewed as legitimate, or at least understood, as a replacement for of being easily in print off as malicious, vandalising, thieving, terrorist out to take over the computers of the world for own gain, or devious teenagers who have nobody change for the better to do than crash every free computer.

It is gratitude to the mass media and associates who have categorically no accepting of computers, who use terms like "information superhighways", "IT", and "computer crime" to try and make themselves sound chief that it is implicit all "hackers" (the good and the bad) fit the above descriptions. There are citizens who do stuff like the above but they ARE NOT real hackers, They buy the magazine "2600" and they ask questions. They do not want knowledge. They do not want to learn how equipment work, they do not want to explore. All They want to know is the counter to their damn questions, they are not real hackers.

They are the real criminals and are the hazard to every domestic device allied to the Internet, they destroy, steal and mess up the flow of in rank then let the real hackers take the blame!

Hacking IS NOT about the mindless idiotic destruction of files and/or booming systems intentionally.

Real hackers have an ethical code of practice, which includes effects such as:

☞ Leave a classification in the state it was found.
☞ Do not intentionally break or adapt everybody else's data.
☞ Do not cause any legitimate user tribulations with cpu resources.
☞ Do not admission disaster armed forces computers.

Real hackers are fuming when so called "hackers" cause harm to or arrangement resources. Hacking is about looking for answers and knowledge, it is about learning. That's why hackers hack, to hunt about contained by a place they have never been, to explore all the a small amount nooks and crannies of a world so disparate the boring cess-pool they live in.

Their aim is to rise above the rest, and then to pull all and sundry else up to the same new level. Real hackers adjust accessing central processing unit systems by claiming that it is not unfair to break into or else idle mainframe assets and to download files with the intent to learn.

The by now terrible reputation agreed by the real hackers is cased by the ignorant and dense colonize who like the label of "hacker" that screw clothes up, for the most part despite the fact that the destruction of stored in sequence and or all decent behavior of cpu correlated fraud.

For those who don't know advance it is merit to the mass Media who have blown it way out of proportion. A hacker, by wrong-definition, can be whatever thing from a computer-user to a big name who destroys the whole thing they can get their evil terminals into.

And the citizens who have certainly no accord of computers, who use terms like "information superhighways", IT, and cpu crime to try and make themselves sound chief that it is tacit all hackers are malicious, vandalising, thieving, terrorist out to take over the computers of the world for not public gain. There are associates who do stuff like the above but they ARE NOT real hackers, They buy the magazine "2600" and they ask questions.

They do not want knowledge. They do not want to learn how equipment work, they do not want to explore. All They want to know is the come back with to their damn questions, they are not real hackers.

They are the real criminals and are the danger to every domestic device coupled to the Internet, they destroy, steal and mess up the flow of in sequence and let the real hackers take the blame!

Hacking IS NOT about the mindless idiotic destruction of files and / or booming systems intentionally.

Hacking is about looking, pointed for answers and knowledge, it is about learning, filling their curiosity. That's why they get into the system, to hunt about exclusive a place they've never been, to explore all the hardly nooks and crannies of a world so dissimilar the boring cess-pool they live in. They seek to rise above the rest, and then to pull all and sundry else up to the same new level.

Why annihilate that which they love? To take away a big name else's attempt to accomplish something in receiving in as he did? To fuel an before now terrible reputation and augment their likelihood of being paid fixed and thus have their lives and careers for practical purposes ruined? IT IS ILLOGICAL!

The real harms are caused by the ignorant and dim colonize who like the label of "hacker" that screw thing up by destroying the whole thing they can get their evil terminals into.

It is gratitude to the mass Media and colonize who have agreed no appreciation of computers, who use terms like "information superhighways", IT, and laptop crime to try and make themselves sound critical that it is understood all hackers are malicious, vandalising, thieving, terrorist out to take over the computers of the world for not public gain.

ARE YOU A HACKER?

Too associate users who like the label of "hacker". Even as I type this they are dammaging the by now terrible reputation approved by the real hackers. This file is meant to help these colonize who are not portion the change by pointing out the errors of their ways! What is that you say, "but I am a "badass" hacker". Just ask your self whether any of the next metaphors sound like you, if so then you are part of the problem!.

You have been surfing the net, and you laugh at those media gossip of the in a row superhighways. You have a red box. You do not have to pay for phone calls. You have crackerjack, and you have run it on the password file at a Unix on which you have an account. Your mainframe comprehension has impressed all and sundry at your school, you are the one the teachers ask for help. Am I being paid warmer?

Or may be you are one of the free loaders. There are thousands of you out there. You buy 2600 and you ask questions. You read phrack and you ask questions. You join #hack and you ask questions. What is that you say, "what is wrong with that? After all, to be a hacker is to ask things, is it not?" Nevertheless, you do not want knowledge. You want answers. You do not want to learn how belongings work. You only want answers. You do not want to explore. All you want to know is the fulfil to your damn questions. Dose this sound like you?

Or if not the above you are what I refer to as a non event. You read 5% of 5 or 10 of the hacking FAQs and or tutorial files. You no not fully appreciate the basics of hacking. Or the reasons for cacking. You have never heard of communal commerce or if you have you think it is not important. You think the world of computers and guarantee opens up to you by means of a grand piano and your redbox. In short you know nothing. You are brain dead, but you see your self as a master mind criminal. You brag about you hacking factices. You make it up as you go along. You lie over any and all the BBS you can.

Dose any of this sound like you? If so you are not a hacker. You are a barely child. It is gratitude to you morons that get beaten at the same time as destroying all you can get your evil terminals into that the recognized order (governments, companions, the mass Media etcetera) fake all hackers are like you, malicious, vandalising, thieving, terrorist out to take over the computers of the world for not public gain or are devious teenagers who have nonentity develop to do than crash every obtainable computer. Nil could be quill from the truth!

You madden the real hackers when you cause dent or arrangement resources. You do not absorb the dent you inflect When you bring down a classification you take away from all and sundry the ability to achieve something in in receipt of in, you take away that which all real hackers have come to love more that live itself!.

Hacking is about looking for knowledge. It is about learning. That's why hackers hack, to explore about contained by a place they have never been. To explore all the a small amount nooks and crannies of a world so disparate the boring cess-pool they live in. To augment the flow of in rank and knowledge, so that Each one can learn and benefit.

WHAT IS A HACKER?

More times that I can remember, a celebrity has asked me the ask "Just what faithfully is a hacker?"

For those who don't know better. A hacker can be everything from a big cheese who makes furniture with an axe; (by wrong-definition) A computer-user; An connoisseur at a detail programme; An connoisseur or aficionado of any kind; but the most wide allot concentration of the term is to depict a celebrity who destroys all into which he/she can get their evil terminals. This is true to such an area that if I were to say to just about a person (that has not being exit on the moon since 1982) "I am a hacker", it would directly be tacit that I am a criminal, a malicious, vandalising, a dishonest terrorist, a hardly shit out to take over the computers of the world for not public gain, or some thing along those lines. For this we have the wanabes and the mass Maida to blame!

What I care about a hacker to be is a character who is self motivated and love-struck with exploring the information of programmable systems, a character who loves the intellectual challenge of imaginatively overcoming or circumventing limitations, and uses that data to carry on the fight for choice of acquaintance and information, a character who wants to know the whole lot and most notably a *real* hacker lives by the "hacker ethic" (the belief that information-sharing is a authoritative categorical and good thing), and whom follows an ethical code of apply (that typically includes belongings such as, Leave a approach in the state it was found; Do not intentionally annihilate or amend a person else's data; Do not cause any legitimate user troubles with mainframe resources; Do not admittance tragedy armed forces computers; etcetera)

Their motivations for hacking (the tricks of a hacker) are by and large to learn more about any think that can help them appreciate more about the way the would works, fore exemplar how mainframe systems work by building them do equipment they were never future to do and/or to challenge collateral measures.

This is my own clearness of what the "normative" boundary markers of *real* hackers are. All real hackers tend to meat the adult years of these criteria. However, this is by no means universal, like plants, there are many breads of hacker, most of which are out to complete that same ends, the ones that do not meat any, or the ones the do all the above, but are intent on destruction are *NOT* hackers, most expected they are the wanabes. See my FAQ "ARE YOU A HACKER?" for more about them.

Now, who are the *real* hackers, doesn't matter what their motives they tend to share an, unchecked familiarity and total fellow feeling for their life stilly, they are the ones who are so acutely consumed by knowledge cpu science, cacking, programming, common engineering, boxing, scanning, etcetera, that it means more to them than the ambiance that they knowledgeable at the flash point of their first love, for some it is the basic buzz like heroin, for many to hack, to get approach to a classification and break away from into the dual world, is to engage in sexual intercourse.

Again this is by no means universal, there are those that purely enjoy it, and the ones that find it a pain. The ancestors that do not in *ANY* *WAY* chew on the above may be real hackers, but discovery an elite hacker whom dose not is rare.

If you are a real hacker, like it or not, you are a revolutionary and know it or not every thing you do is in some way allied to your exploration for the truth, for the reason that though to be a hacker is to cast doubt on effects hacking its not about asking questions. It is basically about judgment the truth since they must be able to decide for themselves, what ever the consequences, it is their right to have some say it their fate.

No one can be told what the truth is, as it is altered for everyone, it is an idea, it is austerely enough in order and encounter to allow a being to tell for min/her self. It is not an come back with that hackers seek but instead the truth is learnt from the path that each hacker takes to gain experience, which is austerely the examination for knowledge.

I genuinely do not know what the determination of this file is, maybe a big name someplace will read it, and know more about the truth about hackers. Not the lies of the ignorant!
