Hacking

With the proliferation of technology today, humans have the ability to do things that they could never do before. They can send and receive messages instantaneously. They can find information at whim. They can talk to and see family members who are thousands of miles away.

Technology has also created many opportunities, however, to do more dishonest things. One such activity is hacking. Hacking is the act of breaking into another computer or another network. From their own computers, hackers somehow get access to someone else’s computer or a network belonging to an organization. As a result, they can do a number of malicious things. For example, they can steal information from others’ computers. Or, they can install viruses that will infect a network. Some hackers may choose to place spyware on a computer to track a person’s internet activity.

Hacking is a very serious crime. It often occurs at the international level. As a result, not only U.S. law enforcement authorities but also foreign and international policing agencies, like Interpol, investigate potential hacking.

Hackers can face serious jail time. By hacking, not only are they taking part in criminal activity. They are also putting others at risk. If people’s finances are damaged, for example, then their entire life can be ruined. Moreover, if hackers break into a company’s or organization’s network and harm the network, then the business or organization can suffer immensely, also possibly creating a ripple effect.
