Hacking: Pro and Contra?
Do you know what a hacker is? Well, a hacker is a person who enjoys exploring the details of programmable systems on computers and he or she likes to stretch the capability of the systems. The activities they do in the computers are called ‘hacking’.
So, what’s the problem with ‘hacking and its hackers’? Well, 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 systems. I dare to say that a hacker likes finding the strengths and the weaknesses of a computer system. They feel proud if they 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, money 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.
Which of the following activities done by hackers is considered illegal?
Finding the strengths and weaknesses of a computer system.
Helping the police catch the white collar criminals.
Feeling proud of finding the system weaknesses.
Breaking into vital institutions’ network system.
Helping to improve the safety system of computer.
Berdasarkan kalimat “Although in most places breaking into computer systems is considered illegal” yang terdapat pada kalimat ke-2 di paragraf ke-3, dapat diketahui bahwa sesuatu yang dilakukan oleh hackers yang dianggap illegal adalah masuk ke dalam sistem komputer yang penting pada sebuah institusi sehingga pilihan jawaban (D) adalah yang paling tepat.
