Hey #Hackers #Fediverse, I am involved in a talk at #RightsCon about IoT """security""" and would like to give some suggestions of terms that can replace "hackers", "hacking", "hack" in the context of cybercriminals, malicious activity, and break-in.

So far got:

hackers -> cybercriminals, attackers, malicious actors

hacking -> breaking into, compromising

hack -> break-in, compromise

Suggestions very welcome!



That's an American gentrification of .

The original meaning of INCLUDED the violation of users' taboos that poor administrators relied upon as security features.
