    I wonder if the media has decided that any kind of wrongdoing involving computers is called hacking. So he logged into someone`s email account using their normal login and password. Hacking? Really?

    Do you have an ad-blocker? Because that might be the mandatory ads you have to look at, which are probably being blocked and turning into an empty page.

    I, for one, am not going to immediately assume the more successful man is telling the truth. Frankly, I think he did do these things, but that wouldn`t mean he owes anyone 65 million dollars.

    I think catbarf has decided that it`s only hacking if it looks really cool like when they hack safes in the movies and poo.

    Look, he got into their PRIVATE e-mail accounts without their consent. That`s hacking. I don`t know what else to tell you, that`s almost the definition of hacking.

    You`d be amazed at how quickly a very rich person can end up owing people...

    Hacking is pretty much breaking and entering. You break in, steal their passwords, and then use it.
    Quite frankly, I can`t see a reason why you would register on an enemy`s site and use your real password and login info. This isn`t hacking. This is just stupidity.

    "I think catbarf has decided that it`s only hacking if it looks really cool like when they hack safes in the movies and poo."

    Hacking is the use or abuse of a system in a manner it was not intended to in order to alter or gain access to it. Using a Javascript injection to manipulate a website is hacking. Logging into someone`s account in the manner the website was designed for (even without the owner`s permission) isn`t hacking.

    The difference between logging in because you know the password and using an actual hacking technique is the difference between opening a door with a key and breaking it down with a tank. Describing this breach of privacy as `hacking` is conflating different concepts.

    As said, hacking is analogous to breaking and entering. Using someone`s login info that they gave you would be like opening the door with a key. The law may view both as criminal based on intent, but the method is different and connotations differ.

    "Business Insider admitted it was not clear how Zuckerberg could have hacked into the ConnectU accounts."

    I love the quotes on the page. In other words, `We don`t know it`s possible that he could have done this... but we think he did it anyway.`

    "As said, hacking is analogous to breaking and entering. Using someone`s login info that they gave you would be like opening the door with a key. The law may view both as criminal based on intent, but the method is different and connotations differ."

    Except that he wasn`t `given` the key. He used facebook technologies to examine information that (in all likelihood) shouldn`t even be logged, that being the exact passwords that didn`t work, and used said info to `hack` into their email accounts.

    Using your logic that`d be like using a doorman to unlock a safe or something, but your not sure which key actually works. While your testing each one the proxy is secretly making copies so he can later enter your house without your knowledge/consent.

    And yes, he did use or abuse a system in a manner it was not intended to in order to gain access to the email system. By you`re own definition he is hacking.

    Not really "hacking" if you own the site you`re supposedly "hacking" into. Also, "hacking" does not generally refer to someone "breaking and entering".. well yea it does.. but only for exploration purposes. or at least thats what "hackers" want you to think... its like "hacking" i-a-b for the newest newest links, legend has it, it`s possible (no it isn`t)

    "Quite frankly, I can`t see a reason why you would register on an enemy`s site and use your real password"

    They didn`t according to the article. The accusation is that he checked the logs to see if they typed the wrong password in, then tried their wrong password to get into their Harvard accounts. Basically they used a separate password, but forgot which password they used for which site, without thinking about the possibility of a site recording and using said slip-ups.

    Ok,
    1) It is hacking, but not because of any reasons cited so far. Catbarf is essentially correct here.

    2) Security breaches, generally speaking are cracks, not hacks.

    3) If this article is true, what he did was "wrong". "Wrong" is the important word here. Possibly (probably) illegal, and if not illegal, should be made illegal.

    4) It therefore doesn`t matter if it is defined as "Hacking", "Cracking", or if we call it "Butterfly Mayonnaise".
