Hacking: Pro and Contra?

Do you know what a hacker is? A hacker is a person who enjoys exploring the details of a programmable system on computers and he or she likes to stretch the capability of the system. The activities they do in the computers are called ‘hacking’.

So, what’s the problem with ‘hacking and its hackers’? The problem is whether ‘hacking and its hackers’ is legal or illegal. What I mean is that people in the world have many different views about hacking and the hackers. Some of them take sides, but many object.

To get back to what I was saying previously, let us see the positive points of a hacker, shall we? Although in most places breaking into computer systems is considered illegal, I believe that hackers don’t do anything illegal because they only want to know and try the system. I dare to say that a hacker likes finding the strengths and the weaknesses of a computer system. They feel proud if the can find the weaknesses. So I don’t really see the crimes in this case. In addition, these hackers sometimes help the police catch the ‘white collar criminals’, such as bank robbers, many launderers, credit card forgers. For example, in 2000, the U.S. hackers caught some Singaporean hackers who made ‘Virus Love’ to break up the programs of the U.S National Security system.

Nevertheless, those who object to the good points of a hacker say that hacking is a crime. The reason is that some hackers use their brilliant skills to break into banks and other vital institutions where they can get money and destroy information, and the worst thing is they can get secret information and sell it to another country. This is a treachery.

The main idea of the fourth paragraph is ....

  1. hackers are criminals.

  2. hackers are responsible for their duties.

  3. hackers get money from vital institutions.

  4. hackers have brilliant skills for the goodness.

  5. hackers use brilliant skills to help other people.
