Its the weekend You have nothing to do so you decide to play around on your computer You turn it on start it up and start calling people with your modem connecting to another world People just like you are a button press away This is all fine but what happens when you start getting into other peoples computer files It becomes a crime What is a computer crime really Obviously it involves the use of a computer These crimes are Hacking Phreaking Software Piracy To begin I will start with Hacking what is hacking Hacking is basically using your computer to Hack your way into another Hackers use programs called scanners Scanners randomly dial numbers Numbers generating tones or carriers are recorded These numbers are looked at by hackers and then reused When the hacker calls up the number and gets on hes presented with a logon prompt This is where the hacking really begins Hackers try to bypass this anyway he knows how to and tries to gain access to the system Why do they do it Lets go to a book and see Avid young computer hackers in their preteens and teens are frequently involved in computer crimes that take the form of trespassing invasion of privacy or vandalism Quite often they are merely out for a fun and games evening and they get entangled in the illegal use of their machines without realizing the full import of what they are doing I have a hard time believing that so lets see what a hacker has to say about what he does Just as they were enthralled with their pursuit of information so are we The thrill of the hack is not in breaking the law its in the pursuit and capture of knowledge as you can see the hacker doesnt go out to do destroy things although some do Its in the pursuit of knowledge Of course
