 In common usage, a hacker is a person who breaks into computers and
 computer networks, either for profit or motivated by the challenge. The
 subculture that has evolved around hackers is often referred to as the
 computer underground but is now an open community.

 Other uses of the word hacker exist that are not related to computer
 security (computer programmer and home computer hobbyists), but these are
 rarely used by the mainstream media because of the common stereotype that
 is in TV and movies. Before the media described the person who breaks into
 computers as a hacker there was a hacker community. This group was a
 community of people who had a large interest in computer programming,
 often sharing, without restrictions, the source code for the software they
 wrote. These people now refer to the cyber-criminal hackers as "crackers"

 Problem solving and online hacking weblog and an online community of
 online hackers and librarians.
