What Hacking Really Means?

1 Answer

  1. Hacking is an attempt to exploit a computer system or a private network inside a computer to gain access. Simply put, it is an unauthorised access to commit fraudulent activities or control over computer network security systems for some illicit purpose. Point to be noted that breaking a security system requires more intelligence and expertise than actually creating one.
    The famous term computer “virus” originated to describe machine code command inserted into a computer’s memory that, on execution, copies itself into other programs and files on the computer. Depending on the hacker’s intentions, the design of a virus can merely be an inconvenience or have very serious consequences up to a potential catastrophe.
    So concluding that hacking is the catch-all term for any type of misuse of a computer to break the security of another computing system to steal data, corrupt systems or files, commandeer the environment or disrupt data-related activities in any way by different means.
