Hackers are the equivalent in my world of a vandal. He/she throws a rock
through a window because they know how. Knowledge is how you beat them, and
if you can't do it on your own, you get the tools to do it. example: A
firewall can isolate a threat and in most cases illuminate it so fast, I may
not even know I've had the threat.
You give too much credit to vandals, you're probably smarter than that.
