hacking is a new problem that the united states faces in this social media age. for instance: recently in the news the associated press twiter account was hacked sending a faked message about the white house being bombed causing mass histerya and the stock market to plumet. countless hackers sit in jail for their fameous expliots of hacking the accounts of news corperations, celebrities, government officials and so on. what do you think about this problem and how can we stop it?

Ha.HA.Ha. Stop Hacking. Ha.Ha.Ha. No. Never. Won't happen. EVER. 
 
Also, the media needs to know the difference between hacking and cracking. 
 
 
As for social media, it isn't hacking anymore. Facebook, Twitter, and Skype are by far the easiest things to CRACK.  Hacking has nothing to do with it.

Sorry if I sound rude, but this is my favorite topic. Cyber attacks as it is better called has been a problem/soultion however you see it, since the early part of the millenia.

I know hacking will never be stopped. It is impossible to do so. The reason why it is my favorite topic is because I love debating with others over the fact that hacking will never stop, it will always be there. Just by knowing how to code, you can crack and Hack. Hacking is such a broad term now.

A lot of people don't realize how easy it is to hack. Everything digital can be broken into with enough determination. Basically if you don't want your security to be compromised, don't own a computer. It is kinda an as.shole move to hack into someone's information, but there is no way to stop it. The internet can be accessed from anywhere, every signal goes somewhere, and hackers go everywhere. It's kinda creepy to think about, like the digital information spreading across thousands of miles and connecting the world as one is a different dimension or something.

Imagine:
I'm glad you reminded me.
 
Crackers, are actually the more elite hackers, who commit illegal/legal (however you see it) acts for their own personal gain. It is absically finding a loophole, like a back door, exploiting it, then setting it all on fire, after it is all copied. 
 
Hackers are those who go into systems and look at their vulnerabilities and memorize the information while not actually destroying data. 
 
 
the media as scre.wed up as it is, has brought these two together to mean the same thing, which they are not.
