20  “White hat hackers are programmers who break into computer systems for the sake of exposing security flaws, instead of exploiting them for malevolent purposes.”

21  They report their discoveries to their employer so that the software can be made more secure  This helps protect our information

22  TinKode – discovered security flaws in NASA’s military satellites  Rent-a-Hacker, Inc. – hacking at reasonable rates! ◦ But they’ll only hack your OWN software

23  Hacking is used to fight against oppressive governments and give the public a voice ◦ Particularly in authoritarian countries like China and Iran

24  During the 2009 presidential elections, Ahmedinejad shut off Internet for people supporting rival candidates  Iran also has a firewall blocking any “Western” media

25  Iranians responded with Denial of Service attacks and hacking of government websites to expose their plight  the program Haystack allowed circumvention of the firewall

27  As we go through this presentation, keep in mind that the church does not have specific view on hacking.  There is no published statement

28  that says how they feel so we will look at what the bible says about things such as stealing and invasion on ones trust

29  in order to get a sense of how the church feels about hacking.

30  “The seventh commandment forbids unjustly taking or keeping the goods of one's neighbor and wronging him in any way with

31  respect to his goods.”

32 Hackers often steal things that many people have put a lot of work into and thus are violating the 7 th commandment.

33  “It commands justice and charity in the care of earthly goods and the fruits of men's labor.”

34 Hackers violate privacy when they hack into government databases to steal files, which is a crime punishable by strict consequences.

35 Whether it’s embezzling, stealing ideas, hacking into personal accounts, stealing money, or stealing national documents hackers are thieves.

37  In the case of white hat hackers – yes  But white hats wouldn’t be necessary if black hats didn’t exist

38  Ultimately, as the Catholic Church says, hacking IS a violation of integrity and can be seen as thievery  It should be condemned

39  In its essence, it is thievery of information and privacy, and the Church condemns that.  But it’s ultimately up to you to decide
