Hi my name is Devon Rubbo, I’m from Houston, and I am a sophomore majoring in economics.
The only experience I have had with hacking was when my laptop was stolen last year and someone hacked into my profile and sent computer viruses to everyone in my address book using my email account. It was really frustrating to know that my identity was being used to potentially harm other people and access their personal information. I was interested in taking this class in order to find out more about what happens when someone hacks into another person’s computer or database. In my opinion, hacking is useful in some instances, but most of the time it is used in the detrimental sense and should be prevented.
