The Truth About Hackers
23 November 2010 | by harold-905-638744See all my reviews

This is all about Hacking at its best, it is truly what hackers are and what they are about.

Most if not all people only believe what they see on TV and in the media, you see every time that hacking or hackers are mentioned in the news they always portray them in "a bad light" they with go out of their way to make Hackers look bad. 98% of the time the media is really referring to crackers and script kiddies but they for some reason use "hackers" as the term of choice when someone breaks the law.

Watch this movie if you have any interested in what a hacker really is or better yet if you think hackers are just evil people who steal credit card numbers, you have no idea how wrong you are.

I'm a hacker and I'm proud to be one!
