Hacking has been developed over the years to be unstoppable. Newcomers to the
hacking community learn the rules by associating with established hackers. Hackers like
to hack in order to impress each other. Hackers also do not know about the cost results of
their actions. All studies show that hackers are generally young, and do not have full-time
jobs or own property. They do not consider that if they do get into a system and make an
unintentional, simple mistake, they could cost the company thousands, and possibly
millions of dollars. I think that every computer professional, including the best, have

they realize the problem they cause for already overworked people. The art of computer
hacking has grown since the computers first started to appear.

image of a computer hacker has grown from a harmless nerd into a vicious technocriminal.

just computer experts. Nowadays hacker means the same thing as a cracker, a person who
pirates software, and malicious hackers. There are hackers out there that will do there
best to harm any system they can, national security documents. The bad hackers are
dangerous if they may gain access to classified information. There is a number of things
that our country (USA) is realizing about Cyber terrorism. In 1998, president Clinton
created the Commission of Critical Infrastructure Protection. This protects the innocent
and helpless from hackers and gives them the right over the power of Cyber Terrorists.
Also in many government organizations, they have formed some type of group to deal
with cyber terrorist and block them from stealing money as well as information. (…)
