In the past, to be described as a "hacker" was a compliment. It just meant that you were a really good computer programmer.
However, in recent years, the word has come to be used to describe someone who remotely gains entry to anther person's computer, or to an organisation's computer system, in order to wreak mischief, and possibly for personal gain.
The methods for getting into another person's system are numerous. There are password cracking techniques, for example programs that will simply try every word in the dictionary , that allow a hacker to find out a person's password, and thus start to use their bank account, email account, or whatever.
Another method is to send the intended victim an email with an attachment. If the person downloads the attachment, their computer is then re-programmed to allow access to the hacker, who can then take a look at what is on the computer. Also, a program called a "keylogger" can be downloaded by this method, and then the hacker will know what keys of the keyboard the victim is typing.
There are many firewalls available that will protect your computer from this sort of attack.
People hacking is very easy to do, to avoid this been happening to you, 1- do not open mail (msn hotmail facebook ect) that you don't know, (as soon you open the message or mail, it act like a open do)or to your computer or a virus) 2- don't download nothing that you don't know (check before DL) and most importantly 3 - DO not sign up for somthing you don't know. P.s you can not track or catch a pofessional hacker, he will have signals on signals to countrys, I will take you years on years to get the person, trust me. Erm oi another not every firewall is same, iv done a test and iv cracked somones hacker/virus system worth 130pounds - 210 dollors, don't worry I contact the person to change his system (no police was involved he was thanked)
I got hacked simply because someone on my friends list on xbox live sent me a message saying download this xbox-gamertag modder which is what I was after... So I downloaded it and then when I opened it nothing game up.. However I was on face book and signed in to msn and then they both signed out so I thought this is weird so I join this persons party and when I was in there I heard them talking about them controlling my computer =O... So I knew it was them I downloaded Kaspersky Anti virus did a full scan.. Took several hours but got there... And then I reprted the issue to the hotmail account support and sent them every detail I could on a different computer and now I'm just hoping to get my account back =/

The decline in CAPTCHA efficacy has been an ongoing story in 2008, as
hackers and malware authors have steadily found ways to chip away at the
protection these security practices were once thought to offer. Now, new
findings indicate that both Gmail and Windows Live Hotmail have been
compromised again, this time via a more-streamlined attack process. With
two of the largest webmail providers once again vulnerable, CAPTCHAs
clearly aren't meeting the security needs of either company, and it may be
time to reevaluate the use of them altogether.

Isn't it against the law to hack in on someone and the company you work for fires you for things on your my space page?
If you ever try to hack into someone comp. , you will seriously spend da rest of your life in fear... Trust me!
If you have a fire wall does that mean they can't do it?
You will be a a****** if you try to.
I think they want to track you down and make you scared! But remember if you ever feel scared call 911 or your local seven digit police!
