Recommended Posts

Why do people like to screw up other people's computers? Spyware, viruses, adware, ect...

I think they get a sense of empowerment that they have control over others. They do it because they are socially deficient. I don't think you will find very many hackers who have great self esteem and happy lives.

I think the main reason is that Hackers have to impose their fake superiority over others somehow because they can't do it in real life. think of them as computer bullies

lol, computer bullies. Most hackers do it as a form of empowerment and greed for attention. They all hope that they'll get on the news. Then again, there are very liberal hackers that seek to bring down a corperation as a means of technological terrorism for making their point.

Many hackers hack because they like the challenge, not because they are socially deficient or have some other mental problem.

I agree. Not every hacker out there has a deficient social life. In fact, the real "hacker" term came from MIT. They actually consider hacking a hobby, not vandalism.

 

It is those that damage other's property that give hacking a bad name.

A hacker is a person smarter than average.

A hacker is not one of those punks that sends virus over the net, steals, etc.

 

I think you guys are being a little rough on those individuals, don't let what you see or hear in the news influence your thinking. Start with a fresh mind and you'll see the reality behind it all.

 

Google "Conscience of a Hacker" the Manifesto and you will have an idea of what I mean.

That is correct. You can read about it in a lot of places.

Here is an example

 

There was also The Mentor's Legion of Doom vs. The Masters of Deception. That was the real Great Hacker War in my opinion. A true story behind that event.

 

And let's not forget the former Defacers Challenge underground event. That's one hell of a competition, not a war though.
