Hacking as an anathema to computer science

Authors: Brent Kirkpatrick

Journal: The Intrepid Publication Series (TIPS)

Year: 2015

Abstract: Hacking is an anathema to the field of computer science. Similar to illegal human medical experiments in the field of medicine, hackers and hacking incurs the wrath of honest, hard-working, ethical, and professional computer scientists. Hacking should be considered as a metaphorical equivalent to malpractice in medicine. Hacking is almost as difficult to detect as medical malpractice, and ethical and educational solutions are appropriate.

This document discusses the education background of hacking, open source computing, and how to detect hacking. We believe that computer scientists should take a professional oath, similar to the medical professional oath, to be ethical and not hack.
