Up One Level


Proto-hacker

 

Individual who has risen above the tinkering Anorak level with aspirations to be a Hacker - but does not yet have the necessary skills to crack a major system. Can cause much damage by clumsy entry Hacking and blundering around the system corrupting files - albeit unintentionally. Proto-hackers may have marginally more technical skills than Anoraks but still display immaturity by leaving calling cards, messages, graphics, etc.. As a result most of them are identified and caught before they graduate to being full Hackers.
