What are hackers?
Hackers are computer passionate people , which usually aim to “break” certain codes, databases, web pages etc.. They are considered criminals in most states of the world. Real hackers do not “destroy” typically web pages like personal ones. Common targets of attacks by hackers are important systems that have advanced protection and contain secret information, such as databases like the Pentagon or NASA. Once obtained, these files (information) are published throughout the Internet to be viewed or used by more people.A real hacker has to follow a “code of laws of hackers”, which is well established, known and respected.
Are “hackers” that are attacking random targets, anywhere and anytime they have the opportunity.
Crackers are a particular style of hackers, who are specialize in “breaking” shareware programs, or which require a serial code. The only ones who are affected by this category of hackers are those who write programs.
Mass E – mail-s
Mass E – mail-s hackers or spammers are those that send large amounts of e-mail (or other information), containing unsolicited offers, or random information, submitted in order to block certain servers.
In our case, this character, entitled ‘hacker’ broke several accounts of 9Dragons players and a VGM, VGM [Serena] as shown in the video made by him on You Tube. He wanted to show :
-to Acclaim how vulnerable is it as game company;
–to players that they can’t distinguish between what is official and what is not (many of the accounts got hacked through Acclaim e-mai support (he pretended to be from Acclaim and many players buy it);
-to VGM team that simply does not have sense. In front of them, those who are supposed to protect the system from hackers and the gamers, this character has succeeded to log on a VGM TL of Bardo server.
We know very little about this character. He started on Bardo server with a character wu tang, Patrick_Star from TF hero league and that he is from Germany or at least he speaks german language. From his video we find a another detail, the fact that he has an accomplice. The attacks on 9dragons Acclaim forum and the servers are other facts with which this character boasts .
For players the attack on the accounts was very harmful especially because after he broke the accounts he ensure that those characters will be banned permanently, making all sorts of strange things from characters and one is that of scamming other players.
Why this character hacks 9Dragons accounts?
Truth. He tries to “break” the strangest and complex codes (he showed once on 9dragons forum how you can do it, but got delete it) in the hope that will succeed in exposing “Acclaim screts” like players e-mails, passwords for those accounts, official team real characters or other things.
Superiority.He wants to show the superiority over the “great” Acclaim GMs, computer systems and servers belonging to them.
Quality. He makes massive “damage” from others players accounts just for fun at the expense of those who see their work destroyed in seconds.
Protest. “Spamming” the web site of 9dragons or databases because he disagree with the information from them.
Money. The hacked characters have money and items on it so he can use it to make some real money.
Indeed, ” the life of a hacker” is very exciting, tempting, funny and interesting, but also very risky and dangerous. Most countries of the world consider hacking a very serious offense for which punishment is usually considered banning the use of computer, in some cases, even … For life!
