    Hackers Know..

    ..The Weaknesses In Your System. Shouldn't You?

    This has caught my eye quite some time ago =).

    Okay, lets think. In order for someone to know the weaknesses, is to be "one". The word one, in this case.. is a person,, known as a Hacker. Hackers aren't the enemy. well, atleast i don't think so. Hackers, are accused of alot of ****. If you actually think about it. Most of the people that are into "security" are more of a threat than a hacker?

    I'm sure, "security" people work their asses off and "hackers" just get back in.

    Maybe this would be nice.. Wut would happen if Hackers, and security were put together? Like, to a team or something? That would be the most intellagant thing. Noo more fighting, or anything. Hackers, would be able to know wut security people know, and the security people would be able to learn how to protect certain things =). Ya know wut i mean?

    --

    An example of this.. Is prolly the most noticeable one. Anyone remember, or still know of: CDC, or other known as: Cult of the Dead Cow. =)

    I loved them, they were once the greatest "security/hacker" group alive. But now, they are strictly concerned on Security. They joined the FBI, which is suprisingly amazing. A known, hacking group joins with the Feds? It suprised the **** outa me. I had to read the articles a few times, before i became to my senses and realized. =)

    --

    The summary of this, is.. If hackers know something, then security will know it. Wouldn't this be easier if someone would just form a team, and see wut things would go about.

    I think that this is a good topic to think about. hmm.. Right now. I am going to begin this project.

    Before you realized it was a joke? All you have to do is read the heading and you should know it's a joke.
    And I think that's a great idea if this were a perfect world, but...

    PS. KorpDeath meant the line "Hackers know the weaknesses in your system. shouldn't you?" was a joke , not your idea.

    yeah it's a good idea to make that team.. so we will have most secure software from any invasion.. so people can safely do anything with computers................

    about that "Hacker know......" I think it's a motivation for us.. to learn more and more.. so we can be a good Hacker (you know hacker is different from Cracker )........

    Hmmmmm this all depends on what your definition of a hacker is - which we have had ALOT of threads about already but IMHO a white hat hacker is already on the security side after all most will report any flaws in a companies security that they find.....what we really need to concentrate on is ensuring that such people are seen not as a threat but as an aid....some companies still insist on attempting to prosecute white hat's after they have compromised their system even tho they have caused no harm and alerted them to the problem.

    These people deserve thanx not prosecution

    ehm.... hackers ARE security gurus, hehe
    M.I.T. educate hackers... and professional hackers help to stop crackers from destroying everything.
    what do u think a hacker is?
    so hackers do security... they r "security" people...
    the only thing that makes the difference between a hacker and a cracker is the persons moral and the ethics he/she lives by. (the technical knowledge isn't enough to become a true hacker)
    so u see... we have already joined and r helping eachother.

    btw. cDc + FBI is a VERY BAD combination! The Feds created the Carnivore-project, magic lantern and who knows what... They abuse ppls privacy time after time and would probably also kill Freedom og Speech if they got the chance...

    AO is a good example of security people and hackers working together...
