HACKING COMPUTERS

Computer hacking refers to the practice of modifying or altering computer software and hardware to accomplish a goal that is considered to be outside of the creator’s original objective. Those individual who engage in computer hacking activities are typically referred to as Hackers.
                                          
Actually hacking a computer is useful at times. Ethical hackers are network and computer experts who attack a security system to help the computer system owners. They do this to look for any vulnerabilities that could be exploited by a malicious hacker. Hackers are appointed by the companies for their personal issues. But not everyone use it in a right way. Humans have the skill to use good things in a bad way. Many hackers find a loop hole and they always count of people’s mistakes dealing with their security. Hackers breech inside a network and steal passwords, which will be used or sold.  They are usually done through email. Hackers do not even have to gain internal access to a network to bring down. Instead they use denial of services attacks by flooding the access routers with traffic, which tend to be more difficult block because they use multiple, changing, source IP addresses. Many of the hackers are computer software and hardware engineers.
Hacking has become common nowadays. Most of the hackers are not noticeable. They easily hack your computer, learning to hack a computer do not need any special skill that has to be gained by a person. Anyone can learn and hack a computer with today’s technology.

My personal take on this is that hacking has advantages, since the disadvantages are being more, I request everyone not to give any personal information. I also request everyone to know how not to be hacked by the hackers.
