Hack vs. Crack- Common Usage
- While this subject was listening to its last rites on this list (and
rigthfully so, since we're all in agreement on what a hacker is and
isn't), an interesting story came up on /. :
The gist: In english, a "craker" is a hacker.
Emphasis: I _do not_ think a cracker is a hacker [our sense] , necessariy.
I think he very well might be, if he's skilled, knowledgable and original.
However, this list obviously does not want to discuss issues relating to
computer security, unless their "hack value" is very high. So be it.
