Re:Re:***READ THIS if you use Internet Explorer***
Picking nits I know, but this phrase isn't quite accurate:
"also, most hackers wont just hack any old computer, they usually have some sort of purpose, to change grades to steal files of value (like $4,000 operating systems, basic windows XP costs about $200) or they want to mess something up, like health records, insurance or stop light control as in the movie"
On the contrary, many crackers WILL try to crack any old computer, for a variety of reasons.
Reason one, many people may have sensitive financial info on somwhere on their HD.
Reason two, the computer can be used as a "zombie" for DDoS(Distributed Denial of Service) attacks.
Reason three, just for the heck of it. Yes, there are PLENTY of so-called "script-kiddies" who will crack a system just for vandalism purposes, as well as bragging rights to their friends. There are also those who just enjoy the challenge.
