It kinda bothers me when the media refers to people who run phishing scams as "hackers". I mean, obviously most hacking these days has a social engineering component, but if a data breach relies entirely on social engineering and nothing else, then it's not hacking, because you're not actually using any computer skills. There's nothing more cringy than someone who thinks they're some amazing black hat hacker because they basically just called someone and asked for their password.
