I love how people complain about the way google, facebook, and others "violate" their privacy. You gave them all of your personal information. If you don't want them to have it, delete your account and close the damn computer.

That isn't going to happen. Even if you close your facebook, everything you uploaded remains there. Once you upload something you have to face the fact that it's gonna stay there until they choose to close their servers.

I find it funny how people on the internet get butthurt when the word &quot;hacker&quot; is used wrong. It has been played out to also mean that someone messed with their account on social networking and such. For example, look at the word &quot;busted&quot;. It means to be broken/damaged but it's also used as like a slang for being caught for doing something bad. You may think &quot;that's not the same thing hurr durr&quot; but it really is. Just a thought on something that slightly rustles my jimmies.

No, it isn't the same thing. When something is 'busted', it is broken or damaged. If you are caught in the act of doing something wrong, you have been 'busted'. The act has been 'damaged or broken up'. The parallel works. Identify theft isn't hacking.

It is social engineering though. And that's a skill in any shady persons arsenal. Including, but not limited to, hackers, crackers, penetration testers, and spooks. Social engineering is the art of hacking humans, witch I find is more useful 60% of the time.

Sure. It's a handy tool in a black hat's toolbelt. But it isn't the same thing as hacking.

It's a useful tool in anyone's tool belt. You want to get ahead in life on pure merit it's going to take forever. And I still maintain that to the average man who isn't a black hat (Or someone that doesn't even have a hat) that this is a far more important skill to have.

And it is the same thing, just on a different platform. You're learning to hack people.

I do not believe the term hacking can be applied to people. Hacking's four definitions specifically reference coding and/or programs. Otherwise, we'd have to change the way we looked at psychology and hypnosis. Hacking actually has a legal connotation. It's not a word you can just bandy about.

80% of the time hacking has nothing to do with code. A hacker is just someone who screws around with systems. Be they computer, or what not. There are all kinds of systems for hackers to take advantage of. Computers are the most popular to talk about because they're the most obvious. Computer hacking is usually done with per-written scripts like USB hacksaw, cow patty, and that sort of thing. The programs are available for free online, and they're not illegal to own. (Just to use without permission) USB hacksaw is amazing by the way, you should check it out. Another that might interest you is jack the ripper. Both are brutes in the world of password penetration.

TL;DR Hacking isn't limited to computers.

Hacking--
a. To write or refine computer programs skillfully.
b. To use one's skill in computer programming to gain illegal or unauthorized access to a file or network
c. To alter (a computer program)
d. To gain access to (a computer file or network) illegally or without authorization

Those are the four definitions for hacking (aside from, say, hacking something with an axe).

I see your definition. I just can't get over the similarities between human systems and computer systems. They both require finesse and know-how to penetrate, especially undetected. The skills are not mutually exclusive, (or more to the point, shouldn't be) so I, and many other people believe that social engineering should be considered hacking. That's all I'm trying to say.

Sorry, I didn't mean your definition specifically. I just meant a definition that you provided. I, and many others believe the definition is outdated and needs to be changed. The problem with technology, is that the definitions become outdated almost as fast as they're ratified these days.

Which is fair, but until that is changed, I'm not going to budge from my stance. The moment that the word hacking can be applied to that kind of act, it now has a legal meaning. It's like a thread I replied to not long ago. There is a strict, legal difference between "impersonation" and "wearing a costume". That difference keeps you out of a jail cell. Same thing here.

Exactly, and I'm plenty happy with that. When they get around to seriously trying to fix the problem there will be another cracking gimmick someone has thought up.

and busted used to not mean to get caught doing something wrong but people accepted it. no one has excepted "hacker" in the other way yet.

You've completely ignored the context of my post.

The reason WHY you are busted when you've been caught doing something wrong is because you have been stopped from doing it. That act is 'busted'. It has been damaged, prevented from occurring.

In this situation, however, there is no parallel. Identity theft has no parallel to hacking. Hacking is the process of taking a program and altering it to suit a different function.

hacking doesn't mean some dude sitting at a computer typing in lines of code to unlock bank accounts and control spy cameras somewhere, it means taking advantage of a system to achieve results that system wasn't initially intended for, just because a hack is simple doesn't mean it's not a hack.

Driving a Car into a wall is hacking? That's taking advantage of a system(the car) to drive it into a wall(result that wasn't intended for).

Hacking is a Felony Offense. Accessing restricted files from a computer system without authorization to do so. There's some legal mumbo jumbo there, but the basis is you're doing something on another system that you don't properly have access to.

Hacking as a hobby is essentially what every linux user does.

Hacking as a subculture is pretty much 4chan; or at least what it used to be.

Making another account and slapping someone elses picture on it... I honestly don't see how ANYONE could call this hacking.

Breaking into systems and networks (usually from a remote outward location) to steal, modify or damage data or programs is exactly what hacking means.

What you're describing is exploitation. Sort of.

Depending on where the go from there, they can very well hack all they like.

Many people seem to forget the social engineering aspect of hacking.

Well if you assume that this is an older person then they call everything that is negative and relates to technology "hacking." I remember when I chopped up an old VCR with an axe and my mom called it "hacking."
