Do I personally know any hackers? Yes, my friend who is also associated with anonymous.
Do you want to know his name? No, he shall remain anonymous
Am I rambling on about a bunch of bullsh*t that isn't even true. Yes, I like trains.
I know a guy who claims he can hack into emails, social media accounts, webcams and people's operating systems, and would do it for people he trusts for a price. He could be talking absolute bolIocks, but he does work for a software company so it's somewhat plausible.
I know some people who can do this.
Most of them work for legitimate companies concerned with protecting cyber security.
A couple are anarchists who seem to spend most of their time on the dark web.
I take care never to get on the wrong side of any of them.
I'm friends with a guy who regularly gets paid hundreds or thousands of dollars for discovering significant vulnerabilities and various web-related applications.
He's quite good at programming but he has a really outside-the-box approach to network security.
I'm friends with a bloke who has an HND in Photoshop and he said he can hack printers. I am sure he's telling the truth because his uncle is Steve Jobs and I saw them eating together at TGI Fridays.
Someone already hacked into my account or is trying to find out more about me and my family.
I'm quite adept at stress-testing, troubleshooting usability and exposing obscure programmatical errors (to the delight and chagrin of our web-development team), but don't know any "hackers" per se and haven't personally written code since I was 12.
