hackers crack

If you play with fire, don’t cry when you get burned.

If you’re a hacker who defaces websites, breaks into networks, defrauds credit card companies, steals money from banks, or, heck, destroys the virtual economies of game worlds, then be prepared to face the consequences.

Sure, you might tell yourself it’s all just fun and games — until you get caught. And what are you going to say when that happens? “Sorry. I didn’t mean any harm. I was just trying to see if I could do it.”

Maybe you haven’t been paying attention because you’ve been too busy gloating about how good you are, and patting each other’s backs for your exploits. But here’s a news flash for you: The government is pissed, the companies you’ve been spitting on are pissed, and they know who you are.

And pretty soon, the public will also know who you are. Not just your codenames. Not just your nicks. But who you really are.

See, that’s the trouble with this country: People keep committing crimes because they think they can get away with it. And just as in real life, so too in cyberspace. Look what happened with the ILOVEYOU virus, which caused an estimated $7 billion of damage worldwide in just one year. Yet the author wasn’t punished, and in fact some people have even found it a source of pride that a Filipino created this infamous worm.

People haven’t gone to jail yet in the Philippines for cybercrimes — yet being the operative word.

Until then, some are reduced to flaming tech journalists like Erwin Oliva, who has been tireless in exposing the truth.

And some, when caught like a rat, try to clutch at straws and take others with them down their sinking ship.

Sorry. Game over.

  1. high profile hackers always get caught, as is the case in the US. If the FBI can get Kevin Mitnick, it is a no-brainer that these hackers/script kiddies/crackers/defacers will soon get caught because they think nobody is watching them, or nobody is taking them seriously…

    to the hackers who had been flaming me, happy b-day guys! you just got burnt.

  2. Crackers only get caught because they are not careful of what they are doing. Most experienced crackers know this. That’s why there are such things as private servers and remotely executed attacks. So that they would not be easily tracked. They are smarter than you think. Ever notice in IRC channels, they bounce off a PsyBNC or a datapipe. Or use proxy servers. I personally don’t believe that our local law enforcement agencies have no capability of tracking these individuals down. Inexperienced newbies or wannabes, yes. I believe they could be caught. Since they make mistakes and leave a lot off messy logs behind. Or even don’t even care to cover their tracks.
