1Alex Vassilio 26860039 11/27/07 Chapter 12 Critical Thinking 2. A. Yes, hackers who gain unapproved access should be punished because regardless of the premise under which they commit their crime they are still committing a crime and without authorization their act is not helpful but in fact a hindrance. B. Unless the hacker is employed by a corporation or other software developer specifically to find faults in software then could cause damage beyond what they intended, even when hackers are occasionally beneficial and point out faults in software, the only reason those faults are a problem is that there are people like the hackers attempting to crash it, and so they are only propagating the problem. C. It is unethical for developers not to share security risks with users, because the risks in that software are also risks for the users and they should be aware of all possible threats so that they can try to protect against them.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
