What, may I ask, did l0pht do to your system?
If they are true hackers in the sense of the word they didn't do jack
shit. Mabey took a peek at some info you didn't want anyone to see but
that's all. Perhaps they even gave everyone with a modem access to all
your data. You would say that I am a hacker and encourage others to be
hackers. You might be right. I've broken into systems and looked at some
info I perhaps wasn't allowed to. So what? Organized hacker groups won't
do anything to your personal life if you don't do anything to thiers. We
all want information. You want it. I want it. Everyone on this list
wants it. Everyohne with a computer wants it. That is what a hacker is.
Someone who wants information from a computer or about a computer and
won't let a security system get in the way. Unless they crashed your
system or erased important data stop winning. Go home, find the hole in
your security and fix it. Next time you get hacked do the same thing.
Personally I attempt to break into my system and let anyone I know do the
same. That is how security improves. If no one had ever broke into a
network imagine how shitty security programs would be.
If you realize it now or not, every break-in is benficial and you should
learn from it.
