Anyone can learn how to hack or access another system through open ports .
all you need is the command prompt, ip and port.
a few commands and your connected to someones system looking at there file tree.
the only reason you don't know someone has been there is because you don't know where to look for the foot prints. (or the hacker was smart enough to remove the obvious ones)


I've had my system attacked a few times in the past. mostly Ping bombs and IE exploits.
I use to run a dedicated game server from my home network (before my Dad became a Gamer)
People use to attack my server IP all the time trying to crash the system or lag it to hell so players would leave.

those attempts were from program noobs or wanna be hackers using programs made by real hackers.
They can cause trouble but can't really do major damage.

There is nothing magical about accessing someones system and removing an OS file so the system can't start the next time its booted. especially if people use administrator accounts on there PCs
(the ones that allow full read and write access to every file on the system)


there is nothing special about someone whos taken the time to learn how to do something.

Instead of crying about how scary they are and how "Evil" they are maybe some of you should learn how to do it your self.

Then you will see that there really isn't anything to it.

You sure are ignorant. The government is just forcing it's way on everybody, and no one ever does jack shit about it. Why work your life away when you can mooch off big companies by subtly draining their bank accounts? Besides, you may have something they want. Humans always seem to think they need to work. I think they're pathetic and ignorant. All that matters is survival, not the law, the government, or that dumb piece paper and metal we call money.


Whats easier to live with, ignorance, or laziness? If being an honest working citizen means I'm ignorant, so be it, at least I have the heart to make an honest living for myself instead of cheating the system and having no regard for others.
If survival was all that mattered, there would be far less people on the earth than there are now. Having the willpower to suffer a little bit so others around you can live equally and safely is important and redeeming.

Hackers think only of themselves and how they can benefit from the things they do, and not the feelings of the people who suffer from their acts. They are the kind of people who are shaking the foundation and stability of our country and society.

-snort- Evil, eh? Well conidering that there is no 'good', there's nothing else that they can be.

Feh, there are times when authors really need to stop corrupting the minds be trying to make people believe that 'good' actually exists when it clearly doesn't. That, and the people of America need to think more.


why are you sich a cynic ???
there is good in the world but maybe you just choose to ignore it



I'm not a cynic, I'm just less naive.

Hmp...All there is in the world is evil and lesser evil. Even when you attempt to do 'good' things, you'll wind up doing something bad.


are you retarded if you do good things how do they end up bad????
every day i do good things and explain how they turn bad
maybe your not tryin hard enough but there is good in the world your just ignorant


I am niether retarded nor ignorant. I believe that that would be you.

Example: You lost your dog and put up a misisng flyer, and a month later a family calls and they have your dog. You take your dog back. The dog just lost friends and the family lost a friend as well.

Hackers = Gods of the new world!!

Most of you hate the term "hacker," but ya don't really know who the real hackers are. Most of the bad publicity that they get are based on "kiddie hackers" that somehow learn 1 simple hack and go out and exploit it. Most "real hackers" wont go out and damage people's pc for the fun of it or steal information they know can get them in trouble ( if they can be tracked that is ;P.) Hackers are people who urge knowledge and try to understand most of the things they don't know about computers, appliances, and the internet. Once they understand these things, they try and find ways to manipulate them to meet their needs in gaining that knowledge.

What makes you think that they don't work in big companies and businesses? Most real hackers are computer programmers, database analysts, or IT specialists. Since we don't know everything about computers, they find ways to make the computer or any other electrical device really do what they want it to do. Also, most of the newer software are basically ideas from the curiosity of most hackers.

yes but example

your grandmothers is unable to do the shopping you do that = good
you help out and do the chores thats good
you donate money to charity thats helpin someones life
the world is made of good and bad people but focous more on the negative
people make mistakes thats makes the world BAD but not evil
evil is useing knowledge for ones selfishness and gain destroyin things in the way

I agree with you on that but by personal experience I know they're just control freaks who don't really have lives. Of course thats just a generalization
