But why this need all of a sudden pal
@[Prototype] • 03 Oct, 2012 Hacking is breaking through a system, whether it be a security loophole, trojan or SE.

Hacking with permission is called ethical hacking. Eg. You developed some system and you want to check how secure it is. You just hire a hacker and allow him to break and tell you his findings so you can fix those problem making your system more secure.

Hacking is hacking. Its same! Its in your hands whether you want to do it ethically and become whitehat or choose to do it illegally and become blackhat.
@Kaustubh Katdare • 03 Oct, 2012 The 'hacking' everyone's referring to is actually called 'cracking' - which is basically breaking into the systems you're not authorised to. Cracking is clearly 'illegal' but the term itself isn't very popular and often used in place of hacking.

The term hacking is basically tweaking of your systems or networks to make them use to your needs. If you setup your computer to dual-boot; it's simple form of hacking.

Indeed its like that.

Hacking is not limited to computers. You can even hack electronics. For eg. If you happen to make a walkie talkie out of an fm radio, its the hack i.e. You just transformed something which it was orignally not meant for.
