Yo! I bet my friend I could hack into his computer (not that I'm a script kiddie, but I need some hands on experience with TCP/IP security.), and I was wondering, what could happen if I was caught doing this? I have his permission, but could I still get hauled off in handcuffs?

I'm the wrong person to ask, and so is most others on this forum most likely. If you really want to get in detail answers to hacking related things, go to a hacking forum.

I'm not helping you with any of the hacking itself, but if you have his permission...

It could possibly be that he might try to double-cross you, so having the agreement in writing may help. Otherwise, if big corporations are paying hackers to try to get past their systems, why not you to your friend?

Don't take this as if I'm qualified, though.

Use his computer when he's away. When you've turned it on, open the notepad and write "I WUZ H3R3 LOLZ!"

That's the easiest way to break into a computer.

Brilliant.

Or, if he doesn't know what BIOS is, turn the computer on, go into BIOS and just leave it there. Or even make a password with it. This will work, even if he has a password on the operating system.

It is possible, of course, that he may get mightily pissed at you, which is why you should have the agreement in writing.

Actually his ISP could come after you and/or notify your ISP. The best thing to do to test security is on a local network.

Actually..

Cracking/Hacking is often used in the same way as Cracker/Hacker is..

Basically, it's as follows:
Anyone not in the know uses Hacker for all kinds of hackers (both 'evil' and 'good') whereas someone in the know uses cracker for the evil people, and hacker for the 'good' (professional, hired) peoples.

So generally speaking, cracking refers to breaking into systems with malicious intent, whereas hacking usually means breaking into something with the intent to learn from it or to improve the security system..

Although the exact intentions of Zjc92 aren't too obvious, I myself think that the term Hacking is the 'better' choice of words in this case..
a title is a curious thing...

hackers have gotten to much flak from bad sci-fi movies n shit like that. hackers are usually people that give a function or modify that a computerized object didn't already have but then you do have them naughtys that crack government computers n stuff (like hell they could)


P.s. i would give a better explanation right now but i'm meant to be doing work

Does that not just confirm that what I said before?

"Not in the know" refers, mostly, to mass media...

Either way, Medeivalstargazer's claim was still probably faulty.

Faulty my arse 'Hacking' means to poorly code something... like without comments/sloppily. Cracking is breaking into something. Whether you're hired or not, in my eyes, you are still cracking... Just in the case of hired people its to protect a security system.

Isn't hack in general something that is done sloppy? As for cracking, that's usually done with a pair of pliers or with a sharp object and a heavy object is it not?
