Fast-Nop35705234dWell, that's what hating both security updates and backups gets you.
Demolishun12546234dLOL I read this:
"I don't know who I hate more, regular thieves or crackers."
"I don't know who I hate more, regular thieves or white people."
I forgot about crackers actually meaning blackhat hackers.
Oktokolo3803234dCrackers are cracking things open. They are the proud people that are actually able to open the big cans o' worms the industries are throwing at us (like CSS, the one with the illegal prime number).
Apart from making backups of purchased media, being able to use hardware and media with unintended OSes, playing pirated games or recycling their findings in security research, almost no one has direct or indirect contact with them or any result of their work.
They surely aren't the ones defacing your unmaintained Wordpress-"powered" crap sites.
That sort of stuff is done by script kiddies wich barely manage to use metasploit and nmap or shodan.
And yes, i hate that script kiddies too.
Not because of the exploited crap sites - but because they also basically make using anti DDoS services like CloudFlare mandatory.
Fast-Nop35705233dRaahhh! Polly wants a cracker! Raaahhh!
