How to punish a hacker 2005-12-21 15:29:11 Reply

It's still vivid in my mind, a few years ago, the footage of a swat team manhandling a fat kid, presumably throwing him into jail. His crime? Making the blatantly easy to avoid, yet widely destructive modification of the blaster worm, thus sadly proving the 'lolinturnet' mentality of America.

Jail time? They're still the devious programmer on the inside.

House arrest and ban from computers? Phreaking, handheld devices. They will find a way.

Punishments will only result in temporarily stifling a hacker. Theres no mental reform.

Heres how the Lovsan incident would have gone if I were in charge:

The swat team breaks down the door, yelling, and everything else they do to psyche up the criminals. They listen carefully and hear an electric humming from behind one of the doors. They break it down, and find the hacker holed up in the corner, next to a large computer, glowing with neon lights.

One man grabs him and pushes his back against the wall, whilst the others open up the panneling of the computer, and as he watches helpless and screaming, proceed to shoot a load inside it, one in the keyboard, two or three on the exposed hard drive(s).

Without further warning, they drop him to the ground, crying like they killed his mother, and storm out of the building to their truck.

They never speak to him again

Thats the way to do it. Assuming he does not kill himself, and is able to work through the inevidable mental damage, there's a pretty good chance he will never touch another computer as long as he lives.

I'm considering sending this near fool-proof suggestion to the government.

Standard law procedure. Throwing killers in Jail usually doesn't change their mentality to.

Destruction of property via ejaculation is by no means standard law procedure.

No I talking about the standard procedure. I only read the whole post after that reply :P Wouldn't you get fired for doing that? And you would get those fags from Amnesty all over your ass.

Jail isn't really for reform anymore. Its to keep them out of society. It doesn't reform them, but we got to put them somewhere, and hackers get a long time in jail, so it's all good.

First, a hacker is not a devious programmer.

By definition: Hacker is a term used to describe people who create and modify computer software and computer hardware. Hacker has multiple meanings. In some programming communities, the term refers to people skilled in computer programming, administration and security with legitimate goals.

Most people in the popular media and some in the general population use the word hacker to mean what is called in most programming communities a cracker, that is, someone who partakes in illegal activity or lacks in ethics.

(Complete Definition & extra info HERE)

Getting back to the topic, if years lost in prison are not enough to modify a cracker's mentality, I don't think that shooting his PC will change anything, he will just scream 5 minutes, and go buy a new computer. You made him lost 1000-1500$ and some data, that's all, there's no mental reform.

We all know, the definition, smartass. I was refering to a generality that a malicious programmer getting prosecuted would be a hacker.

In addition, a cracker does not create, the misconception of calling a cracker a hacker is people who get through passwords and other such security information. Crackers do not make anything of their own, they only destroy.

A hacker dosen't always do anything illegal, but doing so does not make you a cracker.

My god.

Drag them out into the middle of the road and shoot them in the mouth with a shotgun. No repeat offenders.


Think you're pretty clever...
