'Dark Side' Hackers

Post 1


Just a quick note, regarding the line:

"... Illegal 'WArEz' sites (often run by 'dark side' hackers, or crackers) distribute tracks illegally 'ripped' from the albums..."

This is very true, and it is a big problem these days, it is worth noting that hackers and crackers usually have little to do with such sites. Crackers are individuals that specialise in 'cracking' protection mechanisms for software, so that people can use them illegally. Hackers, well - we all know what hackers do... not really much to do with warez sites, or MP3's specifically.

I don't mean to be pedantic - this is an otherwise good, informative article.
