Ugh, so tired of people using the wrong terms. Hacker is an ethical (good guy, aka White Hat) I.T. tester. CRACKER is a Criminal hacker (bad guy, aka Black Hat).

There is no such thing as an "unhackable system".....only ones the good guys aren't aware of a crack yet. To error is human, to really mess things up requires a computer.

Any system that can not be unhacked, remains hacked forever once it has been hacked. I prefer unhackable systems. Systems that restore from ROM every few moments on immutable hardware may be effectively inhackable but all we claim is that they are unhackable.

Hi Scott,

I tend to split hackers and criminals into two different groups.

The word hacker is fluid in it's meaning. Without context no one can know what it means. I will often use the term criminal hackers to make it clearer. When I used to be a hacker, I hacked the University of Minnesota every Friday night for a semester. I did it for a Christian organization trying to get awareness for a strange disease later identified as AIDS. There were no clear laws back then but it was hacking and not something I could possibly have a right to do.

The law of conservation of complexity is not a law of physics. The fact that all systems have a minimum non zero level of complexity is. Even a null systems have the complexity that a system exists making it non zero although some may argue otherwise.
