Oh come on, i a tech-savvy group of people talking about cybersecurity, can we *PLEASE* stop using the words "hack", "hacked", and "hacker" to mean "compromise", "broken-into", "cybercriminal"?

It conflates government-paid professional malicious actors with a kid in a basement somewhere building a digital clock. Doesn't seem fair to the kid.

Pretty please?

@rysiek ack You're right. (btw Stop saying Cyber... 👾😎)

@telefreizeit "Cyber" means "Control". Sometimes it kinda makes sense ("Cyberattack"/"Control attack"), sometimes it does not make any sense at all ("Cybersex"/"Control sex"?..).

But yeah, way too much Cyber around.
