Agree with 'Guest' re: hackers vs Crackers. I admit to being a hacker (most of the stuff is for paid work though), but if I find security holes etc., I try and inform the person concerned about it.

Crackers tend to keep knowledge like that to themselves and abuse the site for their own purposes. Script kidders are the lowest of the low tho - they can't actually 'hack or crack' themselves and have to resort to using pre-built programs and scripts to do their work for them.

More info on Hacking/Cracking from: [link] and [link] .
