    Cheating and Hacking

    I view cheating as Cheat-codes,in some cases editing certain files, and editing anything client-side.
    I view hacking as pretty much editing anything server-side and stealing people's info.

    Anyone share these same views, or similar on cheating and hacking? What are your view on the difference between cheating and hacking?

    Hacking is the gaining of access(wanted or unwanted) to a computer and viewing, copying, or creating data(leaving a trace) without the intention of destroying data or maliciously harming the computer.

    This represents the Good Guys most of the time for they are the ones who search for these exploits to prevent crackers use a method called cracking(opposite of hacking).

    Hacking and hackers are commonly mistaken to be the bad guys most of the time. Crackers are the ones who screw things over as far as creating virus, cracks, spyware, and destroying data.
