Hackers Versus Cyber Criminals

Damn fine piece. Glad to see that out there...

On a different note. It would be wonderful if major corporations learned the same thing.

Case in point. This is cut and paste from an undisclosed major entry level networking curriculum.

"The term hacker originally meant someone who delved deeply into computer systems to understand, and perhaps exploit for creative reasons, the structure and complexity of a system. Today, the terms hacker and cracker have come to mean malicious intruders who enter systems as criminals and steal data or deliberately harm systems.Hackers intent on doing harm are able to exploit weak security measures."

I think they need to learn the two terms 'cyber criminal' and 'script kiddy', and write that backwards from the way they have.
