When is hacking a crime?

Kevin Finisterre admits that he likes to hew close to the ethical line separating the "white hat" hackers from the bad guys, but little did he know that his company's actions would draw threats of a lawsuit from Hewlett-Packard.

Big gov messin with a beneficial service IMO!

I believe its called a dis-service to the community. I think most Hackers provide a valuable service that should not be wasted. Knowing about the bugs before the "Bad" guys is essential to good security.

This is just the wrong way to go about it.

Exactly, like I said, until you crack it's not a crime.

According to the law though I believe it is whenever you enter a system without full permission expressed by the other party.  I think most of us have done things considered "hacking," but without any negative intentions.

I wish they would apply that to police departments.
