Young hackers are just curious

Share

Most teenagers hacking and invading computer systems are doing it for fun rather than to cause harm, psychologists say.

Shirley McGuire, a specialist in psychology of the University of San Francisco says that very often parents do not understand the motivation of the teenagers who commit computer crimes. In an anonymous experiment, she questioned more than 4,800 students in San Diego area to find out the truth about teenager's computer hacking.

The findings were uncovered at the American Psychological Association conference this weekend. The results showed that 38 percent of youngsters were involved in software piracy, 18 percent of all teenagers admitted to enter other personal computer or website and used the material from that site. As much as 13 percent of all the respondents said they made changes in computer systems or computer files.

However, only one out of ten the hackers indeed were interested to cause harm or earn money. Most of teenagers did it to see what will happen and thought of it just as an exciting experience.

Nancy Willard, specialist of the Center for Safe and Responsible Internet Use said that internet has a lot of challenges many teenagers face and their natural motivation is to prove they can do it too. Very often, youngsters who enter online support communities, are tempted to show-off and hack together, committing computer crimes without thinking that it can cause serious financial damage.

Experts say that parents and teachers should be more aware of this fact and guide tech children to more positive objectives, like engaging in different computer activities that would be rewarded.

I'm recommending  this credible ethical hacker  {QUADHACKED@GMAIL.COM} to younger couples who are sensitive and seeking to be sure that their spouse is actually being real with their intentions . I used to condone an abusive marriage for so long before i got a divorce. The trauma made me stay away from relationship for a long while.
I always had this urge to be sure of the next person i was getting into a relationship with and giving my commitment to. then a friend i met during counselling recommended this amazing hacker {QUADHACKED@GMAIL.COM} to me , he helped me spy on my fiancee at the time, i was  able to see him for who he really was and his intention was made known to me,i cloned his phone and could access all his sms, call logs and whatsapp messages  , he was a pedophile and i was able to find out due to the enormous amount of information revealed when QUADHACKED helped me hack his phone. i was glad i did this because i had two daughters.
for relative hack jobs, hacking of whatsapp, facebook messenger, email hacks, phone spy, phone wire tap, phone clone reach out to him i promise you'll be glad .

The bitter truth is; there is no quick fix for your credit unless you have a great hacker who could do that through the backdoor. Information that is negative but accurate (such as late payments and delinquencies) will remain on your credit report for 7-10 years. However, there is always a solution to every problem. You can start building a more positive credit history and improve your credit scores over time. But this require a lot of attention and can be very stressful too. I get too busy to keep a constant attention on my report or activities on it. So I make sure I have my credit report entrusted over to a perfect specialist. I prefer Contact QULIOUSHACKER AT GMAIL DOT COM for my credit report anytime.
When I first met with the team, I was just bitterly battling with my report issues. Ever since I met Contact QULIOUSHACKER, I am a great testimony to leaving a comfortable life. I met Dragon back in 2014 through my colleague, Micheal and till date, he has been my personal credit specialist. I had to entrust my credit report over in his hands after he helped me fix my credit from a low 320 to 790. All the negatives on my report were erased too. My report was placed on a revolving nature. I and the people around me never have to border ever for any report issue because we got a real and trusted credit fixer. If you have been having credit issues, I recommend him to you. You can mail them on

I totally wanted an ethical hacker to help me spy on my husband and served as a personal investigator.
Literally, I met him on a dating site and there used to be trust but now, he locks out his WhatsApp, phone cloning. So, I wanted help to bypass her security and test her potency on trust.
I got an hacker who helped me bypass the phone and got it cloned. I get access to activities like Facebook, Email, WhatsApp, calls, Skype and others. I’m sure someone out there is looking for how to solve his relationship problems.
If you ever need help, kindly get in touch with PROLIFICHACKER20@ gmail .com for effective service

You might need a better credit, or a new car loan or want your school loan to be cleared up totally, needs are endless when it comes to financial credit report, Credit cards and bills payment. But never shy away from the good thing here which is that you can tweak your credit report in your favor no matter your current credit predicament. If you do the right thing you might be out of your debt before you even realize and its all in the choices you make right now. As impossible as this may sound well it is true and it happened to me so I know it is true. I just cleared my old car loan of my record and got another car on loan and cleared it again. The truth is it is now possible to modify your credit report, a lot of people in high places are doing it so dont judge. Just contact EMERGENCYTRACK8@GMAIL.COM and see for yourselves.

there is a difference between "hackers" and "attackers". Hackers make use of I.T skills to gain access to files and edit them or do other things. Attackers do similar things but in a malicious way, i.e. password.

hackers alter files and change things-the definition of a hacker is someone who makes software more useful

the press calls us hackers but we are "crackers" we do not code our own files we keylog RAT web down and we are the ones who hack into school mainframes not hacker!

piracy isn't hacking, DOS'ing, keylogging, RAT (remote access trojans), website downing, phishing, and other actually harmful processes are hacking; not 'file changing' or anything.
