The Definitions, Examples of Hacker, and Problem of using Biometrics

downloadAccording to my research In the early days of computering, the word “hacker” meant a creative programmer who wrote very eleghant or clever programs. The word hacker originally was used to describe someone who was proficient in using a computer. The word did not receive its bad connotation until the 1980’s. Early “hackers” were people who enjoyed to explore computers and make them do things that were unheard of at the time. A “good hack” was used to describe a well coded program, but in today’s world, when people hear the word hack they usually begin to think of someone who manipulates or steals information and uses it for their own personal gain.
