Hackers and Hacking – Discussions

I need help with a Law question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.

Through the readings and the lecture this week we examined the (changing) definition of hackers and hacking; the portrayal of these individual, groups, and activities in the media – and some possible explanations related to causation. For this Discussion assignment, respond to the questions

1) What is a hacker? Do you believe there is a ‘true’ difference between hackers, or are they all the same/similar?

(2) What do you believe hackers can do and not do? Can a hacker turn your home computer into a bomb?
