If you break in to a system that isn't yours or you don't belong there, why is that a good thing. But like I said, I don't mean the wargame servers. If you're allowed to try and get in that is fine, if the admin says you can try, go a head and have fun. But if the admin doesn't want that: stay out, don't try.
Hackers get in secured networks but don't do any damage right?
What if this hacker looks at some confidential data like creditcard numbers.
We had a 'hacker' in Belgium and he called himself RedAttack. He got in to a bank(I think it was a bank, not sure) and he published some accounts to let the admins know that it wasn't safe, what if you were an owner of such an account?
If I was an admin, I wouldn't want any one on my network that doesn't have to be there.
