Hacking Rhetoric

weekly blog

1 Comment

Living in a house with a bunch of friends, I’ll leave my computer sitting on my bed all the time, thinking nothing of it. More often than not my friends will open it and my facebook is still logged in, and they’ll write on people walls or post funny statuses on my account. I’ve never thought of this as hacking before, and this is all done in clean fun but it’s scary how we don’t really realize how we can set ourselves up for hacking. I have credit card info and emails on my computer that people could access without having a password on my computer. I know it’s the hacker’s doing the hacking but how much of it is the company’s (or whatever institution) fault? I think we should take some responsibility in being cautious about our security.

 

This happens to me to living in the house with all of my friends ^^!

  1. Hey Audrey, cool blog post! You should definitely check out James Pinkerton’s blog posts, they are wonderful and spellbinding. When I read his beautiful prose I cry every time. Check his stuff out.
