Essay On HAckingby Philip smith
A topic that i know very well is computers and computer hacking. Computers
seem very complicated and very hard to learn, but, if given time a computer can be very
useful and very fun. Have you ever heard all of that weird computer terminology? for and
internet web pages. Have you ever been on the internet and seen words go across the
screen or moving images? This is all done by the Java language. If you don not see
know what a web browser is then I will tell you, a web browser is simply a tool used to
view the various websites on the internet. All web browsers are different, some only
interpret html language, which is another programming language used to design web page
and then there are some browsers that can play videos and sounds.
Have you ever wondered why when you want to go to a website you have to type
http://name of site.com? well I have been wondering for ages but still can't figure out, but
sometimes you type ftp:// before the name of the site. This simply means File transfer
protocol. You use this when download image files or any other files. Now, onto
hacking. Most people stereotype people simply as "HACKERS," but what they don't
know is that there are three different types of computer whizzes.
First, there are hackers. Hackers simply make viruses and fool around on the
internet and try to bug people. They make viruses so simple. The get a program called a
virus creation kit. This program simply makes the virus of beholders choice. It can
make viruses that simply put a constant beep in you computer speakers or it can be
disastrous and ruin your computers hard-drive. Hackers also go onto chat rooms and
cause trouble. Chat rooms are simply a service given by internet providers to allow
people all over the world to talk. As I was saying, Hackers go into these rooms and
basically try to take over because in chat rooms there is one person in control. This
person has the ability to put you in control or simply ban you. These hackers use
programs that allow them to take full control over any room and potentially, make the
computers on the other side overload with commands which in end, makes their computer
Another type of computer whiz is called a cracker, crackers are sort of malicious.
Crackers use security programs used by system operators for evil purposes. System
operators use these programs to search the net for any problems, but they can be used for
other purposes. When Crackers get into systems they usually just fool around but never
The last computer whiz is called a phreaker. Don't let the name fool you,
phreakers are very malicious and will destroy any information found when breaking into a
system. The phreakers use the same techniques as crackers but they go a step further.
When into systems, phreakers usually plant viruses and steal information.
Now that you know some important things about computers and the internet it will
take you no time to surf the web. But remember, never get into hacking, cracking and
phreaking because no matter how much you know about computers you should never use
it for malicious purposes.
