I want to break passwords

Many guys ask this question on CrazyEngineers Forum.

Aren't there some good things other than trying to break other peoples' passwords. Why only hacking, phishing, breaking? Budding Indian engineers' brains are all stuffed with useless stuff. Ask a computer freak computer science engineering student, what do you want to become, dude?

He: I want to become a Hacker!

You: What? hacker? Brother, hacking is crime.

He: No, I want to become an ethical hacker.

Whether ethical or unethical, hacking is hacking, ie. doing wrong things. Very few people use it gracefully.
Instead learn other things, like creating good stuff (like me).

People are not going to understand unless dozens of geeks are behind bars.

Yes. That's true. Every computer geek wants to become hacker now a days. I know many people who are completely trying to hack others password or hacking some ABC, XYZ website.
Obviously, they can't. But they just try.
Now, I don't know why they try this.
I also knows the part of hacking but I never used it anywhere on internet and will never use.

@pranav: I'm not at all interested in hacking. After all, who recognises hackers? People who work for security are recognised.

@bik: ha ha...Seems interesting, but I'm damn sure it's very difficult. Before rolling out anything, the creators always think about the possible attacks first.

Well thought. I totally agree!
People think it is more fun and interesting which is beyond my understanding.
