Is there such a thing as a good hacker?

If I 'notice' that a random computer on the internet is open to attack from a hacker, what should I do?

What if the only way to let the owner of the computer know about it, was to hack in to the computer and leave a message?

Is that considered right or wrong? (From an ethical or legal view)

Does anyone know if there are any laws in Trinidad about this type of 'harmless hacking'?

First of all I believe the term you are refereing to is 'cracking' where as 'hacking' refers to modification, cracking refers to infiltration, accessing secure areas, etc. There were laws made against cracking in Trinidad, how extensive they are I do not know, but they are there. My suggestion is… if it is someone you know, just send them an Email, if it is just a random person then leave them alone, after all, how many users on the net are 'open', you can't save them all. Have you been sniffed or are you the sniffer?

'Cracking' sounds like you have to put so much effort into it. Its suprising the amount of Windows systems you can get into just using tools that come with Windows and without the need for a password. It can take less than a minute.

Microsoft really needs to change fast. They should at least tell people what to do to fix these simple holes in their systems.

I agree about Microsoft. That is why I point out that IE is one of the three biggest security problems on computers. The other two are Windows and Outlook.

The three best answers to protect computers is: firewalls, firewalls, firewalls.

Also, visit Source, there are free tools there that plug several security holes, along with lots of information about security problems.

Biff sounds like you have 'extra' time on your hands?

Thanks for the link Nighthawk. I tired the programs and looks like I am secure ;) You should open a thread with it in the Downloads board so everyone can be aware of it as they may not find it here.

I believe that a white hat hacker can exist since maybe someone can hire one to crack something that they need, such as cracking the password in a computer that the person forgot.
