    Default [Information] Hacking is not Cracking Here

    A Hacker

    Is a person who is skilled with computers and/or programming to an elite level where they know all of the in's and out's of a system.
    There is “NO” illegality involved with being a hacker.


    A Cracker


    Is a hacker who uses their ability for personal gains outside of the law.

    A few Examples

    Stealing data - Gaining access to licensed software - Changing bank accounts - Distributing Viruses etc.



    What the hacker does with their knowledge of systems is within the definition of the law and is what defines
    Hacker from Cracker Here.


    It's safe to say that all crackers are hackers, but not all hackers are crackers.
    This is an important distinction.


    The term cracker and hacker are used interchangeably (albeit incorrectly) largely due to the ignorance of the general populace, especially the media.


    ***Hackint0sh welcome hacking but have a "Zero Tolerance" towards cracking on this site***

    On a personal note.. I posted this to mainly help inform people to be careful what they post on the forum
    so please don't flame me if you disagree

    I would like to know the difference between hacking Leopard to run in Wintel machines and cracking the registration process of an iphone app.

    cheers

    i actually got into this arguement with a fool that says hes a hacker. people think cause they downloaded stuff, and use keygens they are hackers.

    i can honestly say im a pirate, but no were near hacker or cracker.
