Hacking has existed for many years. In fact, the word “hacking” has been around since the early 1960s. Today, people who are unusually adept with computers are called “hackers.” Sometimes, the term hacker is synonymous with intruder, or someone who gains unauthorized access to a network, system or a machine. In the media, the term “hacking” tends to have a negative connotation. Many people who are considered hackers today participate in illegal activities. Some hackers break into other people’s computers while others break into entire networks. While hackers are often considered a blight to information technology systems, some hackers work to benevolently expose security holes and strengthen systems against future attacks.
