Are My Computers Safe From Hackers?

The meaning of the term "HACKER" has really changed over the years. Early on anyone who was considered a "HACKER" was someone who new the intricate workings of computers and various technology. Someone who was considered to be a guru at what they did whether it be a programmer who wrote software or someone who knew everything there was to know about a particular Operating System. These day's the moment someone hears the word "HACKER" it conjures up many thoughts and images. Some people imagine a teenager sitting home writing programs to break into business computers or their school. Others may imagine someone who attempts to access online computer systems such as Banks or Stores to commit fraud and make off with millions of dollars. The fact is, all the above are pretty much true images of a HACKER. It just depends on who it applies to!
