My *point* was that he should be glad that all he did was add an entry
to the database instead of deleting every damn table in there, hence
the bit about "someone with *malicious* intent".
I disagree. If Codeboy had sent him an email describing what was wrong,
instead of this "Killroy was here" stuff, rswfire *maybe* should be glad.
An intruder leaving small traces shoving that he's been inside your system,
is IMHO not something to be glad about or grateful for. I know that is the
general consensus, a sort of "pride between hackers": Show that you were
there but do no other harm. But it's bull. They're not heros, they're every
bit as criminal as the rest.
Sorry for the harsh tone but this subject is really one that upsets me.
