he really didnt ask How to hack an account, he just asked how he can retrieve his password.

The problem is, he doesent have an e-mail to send his Password to, half of the time people dont remember what there "secret" answers are cause they just put bullshit there lol..

Happened to me several times

Anyways, if u dont know ur secret password, or any other information they ask for retrival, u wont get your account back..

I think that people seem to have this misconception about what Hacking really is. In it's Media label it is someone who is 'evil' and malicious. But if you look at the actual definition, it is "an enthusiastic and skillful computer programmer and user. a person who uses computers to gain unauthorized access to data." Now lets look at the definition of a "Cracker", it is one who gains illegal access to a computer with the intent of doing malice. It was made to make a distinction in what the Hacker does and what others who deface the name "Hacker" do. Unfortunately the media would have a tough time using Cracker because people are dumb and would think it was a racial slur or something.
So get it strait all you "I am hacker." people who download some app from the net, which btw is probably full of backdoors, you are not a hacker if all you want to do is malice, doom and destruction to the net. Those of us who want to make life better, we are the hackers.
And for gods sakes, learn how to code, wait better yet don't, that way i will have little competition in the job market :-)

Dude thats fair enough, but u cant go calling everyone hackers just for self adjusting software, thats what bill gate, steve jobs, Linus Torvalds, Rob Pike did, and many many others.

The only difference between them is that they all made their own hardware with the exception of Mr Gates. Also Rob Pike (with AT&T), the co-creator of UNIX, on which quite a few operating systems are varients of, or have their roots in.

Note that the richest one didnt make his own hardware and instead got paid to let his product sell as an ecompaniment to an allready existing Hardware manufacturer. Also, note that the core of the new MacOS X is straight Berkeley Unix, and Linux as a very closely related to Unix.

Rob Pike, well known for his appearances on ``Late Night with David Letterman'', is also a Member of Technical Staff at AT&T Bell Laboratories in Murray Hill, New Jersey, where he has been since 1980, the same year he won the Olympic silver medal in Archery. In 1981 he wrote the first bitmap window system for Unix systems, and has since written ten more.

UNIX® (or Unix) is a portable, multi-task and multi-user computer operating system originally developed by a group of AT&T Bell Labs employees including Ken Thompson, Dennis Ritchie and Douglas McIlroy.
Wikipedia


Not to be Nit picky but even though Mr. Pike is a prolific programmer, he was not a co-creator of UNIX, he just wrote stuff for it. See UNIX was created in 1970 and Mr. Pike did not work at Bell Labs until 1980. If you are going to post in a topic that is on a sticky make sure your facts are straight.
