Question

Recommended Posts

Well, he must have picked up those skills somewhere and I bet he didn't try this on his own network pc's only :)

If you see a homeless person on the street and he asks you for some bread, do you go to the supermarket to steal a bread for that person? You don't...

wat wil stellen?

English: where do you wanna go with that question?

I'm trying to explain to you that breaking the law is wrong no matter what purpose it is for. :)

But is hacking for a good purpose breaking a law? If the dutch dude was just trying to help (and probably tyring to practice his hacking skills) it doesn't make sense to prosectute him. It's like telling a homeless person to go to the lady next door who gives out free bread.

Edit: Would hacking for the purpose of improvement on security be considered genuine hacking?

The problem is determining the motivation behind the hack. If you can truly say someone had the intention of doing good by hacking, you should not prosecute him. Getting the motivation behind it is very difficult (No eye-witnesses :)) and therefore hacking is illegal no matter what motivation.

Edit: In my opinion at least..

I am glad you stated that, that is your opinion. There is actually a White Hat certification for hacking. I can guarantee you it isnt illegal, unless you are imposing on the freedoms of others with your knowledge.

Just like having a gun isnt illegal, until you use it in a way that infringes anothers freedom.
