Look, lets look into the psychology of this...

TRUE Hacking (that is not kiddy hacks) - people who actualyl write their own programs has all characteristics that makes this action appealing:

1. its secretive...not revealed to friends of their secret 'identity' over the net, giving a power-sorta feeling if you will.

2. Its a challenging - to test their abilities

3. After the challenge there is a reward, whether it is money/information or the satisfaction of being better than most people.

4. its a chance to show off your skills, and some may even call writing programs as 'hobbies'

5. Its illegal, simply for this fact people will do what is illegal just for rebellion or the thrill of it. - examples include: illegal alcohol, watching p0rn underage....etc etc....

6. If you do get caught the publicity is quite large amongst the net community, and most laws in current countries do not encompass the changes in technology and their crimes...most likely they wont be percecuted for the damage done.

7. gals like bad/daring boys (come on...we all know this...) ...- jkz jkz

Your using the concept of hacking in a very limited way, and thus related concepts such as hacker.

^ I never known Programmers, Software Developers, Computer Experts and the likes were called the true 'Hackers'. I guess, i really have to rephrase my last post and admit my defeat. (damn!)

"Several alternative terms such as "black hat" and "cracker" were coined in an effort to distinguish between those performing criminal activities, and those whose activities were the legal ones referred to more frequently in the historical use of the term "hack".

if youre gonna be a hacker, might as well be a mad ass one, so that a big company might consider to hire you.

Ive heard this happened before. Cant find the source...but it was a guy who hacked into this computer company (no damage was done). Instead of being arrested, he was hired by the company to find loopholes in their system and make a more efficient security system.

sometimes u get this lucky...

well its like two people fighting who makes the best firewall, if one can get in a firewall then that firewall is weak then you leave a log that will be noticed by the administrator of the firewall that he was been pranked he gets so pissed of he traces spoof and tries to hand another challenge by breaking in his firewall, its kind of a child's game.

but in some case you hack because you steal money or credit cards accounts
