You're arguing BS semantics that no one but you cares about.
The definition of Cracker is exactly what I said it was! Even the definition supports what I said!
I don't even know what you're trying to get at here, what you're arguing for is totally irrelevant. I said I used to hack, which could mean many things, you have no idea what I meant when I said it because I didn't give you any information to qualify it, nor do I need to, but you make assumptions based on knowing absolutely zero about me.
If you want to get into stupid definitions based on what some guy posted in his book about the definition of hacker and cracker, then more power to you.
I'm going by the definition that I've known for the past 20 years. Crackers break security on software or cryptography. A hacker actively penetrates system and finds vulnerabilities. Sometimes a hacker is also a cracker.
Either way, it doesn't matter, and I don't appreciate you trying to make me look like some type of idiot just because you want to get on your high-horse about some definition that some guy put in a book that no one cares about in the cyber security industry.
