Hacking is the act of breaking in to a computersystem and is a criminal offence under the computer misuse. Answer: The really simple definition of hacking: is gaini…ng an unauthorized access to a computer system. Answer: Hacking, for the most part is about learning how a system works and how to make it do things it wasn't designed to do, or you haven't got the privileges to do. Answer: Usually people instantly think hacking is gaining access into a server, taking a copy of a credit card database or some other attack. This is one end of the spectrum. The other end (the most common end), is perhaps best reflected in wireless routers. A hacker buys a Linksys router, realises that the hardware is extraordinarily limited, and then flashes it and installs new firmware and after a few more tweaks is able to have a cheap router doing the job of a very expensive cisco router.
One type of hack is something that lets you cheat in a game. You can also hack computers, and many other things. Some of the variations of a hack in a game like Counter Strike… are Aimbot, Wallhack, Speedhack and MANY, MANY others. Though I advise you NOT to hack, it is also kind of fun. Hackers are people who engage in circumventing computer security. This primarily refers to unauthorized remote computer break-ins via a communication network such as the Internet (black hats), but also includes those who debug or fix security problems (white hats). Its earliest known meaning in the computer context referred to an unauthorized user of the telephone company network (now called a phreaker). A hack is also a nonstandard way of fixing a problem. For instance, in the ReactOS project to write an open source clone of Windows, they have the problem of missing functionality in places. So naturally, certain things won't work. So what the developers may do is make a few minor changes here and there to try to trick software into running. That is called hack fixing. The only problem is when they start to fix the underlying problems, their hack fixes no longer work or may cause bugs elsewhere.
Hacking There are at least three common meanings for the term "hack" (not counting the one regarding trees). The least common is widely used only within the programming commun…ity, and simply means programming for fun. It is possibly an onomatopoeia referring to the sound of a programmer's fingers on a keyboard. This is the most common objection to the below most common usage, and has further evolved to denote the rapid and skillful production of code. Instructions for learning such a skill are impossible to give, beyond the standard advice to take classes, read manuals, and join online communities. A slightly more common meaning is a legitimate activity similar to "jury-rig" and just means that you are reappropriating something to do that which it was not necessarily designed to do. A notable example is the LifeHacker blog. Within programming, this type of hacking is generally considered poor practice and again there is no real way to give a three-step process to learn it. The most common meaning, which this question seems to refer to, involves discovering vulnerabilities in computer software. Within the hacker community there are two main "camps" of hackers, named after a convention of old-west films: black-hat (outlaw) and white-hat (lawman). Black-hat hackers are malicious programmers who exploit vulnerabilities for their own financial gain or amusement, while white-hat hackers disclose them to the appropriate software vendors so they may be patched. Black-hat hackers are also known as crackers, but the general public simply calls them hackers. Black-hat hacking, or cracking, is an illegal act and can get you into some serious trouble - not only with the law but with viruses attached to supposed cracking tools and resources which will crack your computer and data. White-hat hacking, while not illegal, is essentially the same skill and should not be taught to just any random person who wishes to learn it.
To prevent getting hacked, keep all the login info (email, password..) to yourself
You can be hacked by giving out personal information, responding to spam emails or even visiting the wrong website. It is best to have the latest firewalls and security softwa…re to ensure that you do not get hacked.
Hacked means your information has been stolen, or taken away. When's something gets hacked it means someone gained access to your account and now it is at risk.
well i think you are surprised why no one answered your question it's because there are lots of types of viruses if you were hacked by a Trojan you can remove it with avg anti… virus or maybe someone is making a prank on you or if when u start up your computer you see a lot of windows pop up then this is a prank restart your computer and click safemod go to documents / my user / start up programs you will find a cmd program remove it and restart windows normally
The short answer is yes, if you had the technical knowledge you could. However, there is a difference between ethical hacking (White Hatting) and unethical hacking (Black Hatt…ing). Ethical hacking sometimes called Penetration Testing (Pen Testing for short) is where you have permission from the owner of the computer, network, or other electronic resource to test their security. There are many firms who deal with this security and it is actually a great paying industry. Black Hatting on the other hand is breaking into systems where you are not welcome, and it is an illegal activity which shall not be discussed on this website.
you cant because its ellegal you idiots
id ask the same question mah boi XD and also i hope it isent a waste of an awnser
There are quite alot of diffrent ways of hacking here is a forum to tell you all about it. http://adf.ly/1fKrh
dont worry nothing will happen if its of movie star planet report them imedietly and delete your user before it gets worse then nothing will happen
The traditional answer is that a hack is a clever solution to a programming problem. Over the years the media have borrowed the word and use it to describe trying to get unaut…horised access to computers.
In Video Games
Because they like to ruin of peoples fun, troll, or they're just not good at the game.
