Online Scams are not done by Hackers


Everytime I hear that a Hacker commited a crime it pisses me off because it not a hacker is a criminal using technology to commit a crime.

For example KCAL is running a story how this guy sent out e-mails to people posing as AOL Bililng asking them to go to a site and enter their private information. That person is a criminal not a freaking hacker..

A hacker is someone that can do some crazy things from the command prompt or code his own program to run his own payload.
