Cracking

From Hack Story

Jump to: navigation, search

La acepción más conocida de cracking es romper la seguridad de un sistema o programa informático. Pero en general significa modificar el comportamiento de un programa para que funciona de forma diferente a como se pensó o se presenta al público.

No siempre el cracking es saltarse la anticopia, jeje, también hay retos (crackme, CTFs, etc.) para divertirse.[1]

No es obligatorio, pero sí frecuente que la acción que antecede al cracking sea la ingeniería inversa

A un nivel más filosófico, el conocido cracker +ORC escribió este texto:

Cracking it's not just about software, it's
about information, about all patterns of life. To crack is to
refuse to be controlled and used by others, to crack is to be
free. But you must also be yourself free from petty conventions
in order to crack properly.

You must learn to discerne cracking possibilities all around
yourself, and believe me, the development of this ghastly society
brings every day new codes, protections and concealing
mechanismes.

All around us grows a world of codes and secret and not so
secret patterns. Codes that are at times so familiar and common
that we do not even notice them any more... and yet they are
there to fool us, and yet they offer marvellous cracking
possibilities.[2]
