Default Re: Any Ethical Hackers?

IMHO hacking to me is gaining entry into something that is unauthorized by a company or a person. With that said, I can not see anything ethical about hacking. The key word here is "unauthorized". Me as an administrator, I am authorized to other users' workstations for security purposes, but I am not authorize to pry into my boss' computer--unless I have prior approval from his boss.

I don't know...the more I think about it, the more I think that hacking is something that admins should be aware of (for security purposes), but still be able to discipline themselves not to abuse their skills.
