Since when was it supposed to be legal to do this? This hacker should be thrown in the slammer. What the hell is this world coming to when you blame the vendor/sql/whatever-else when a "user" intentionally performs a malicious attack for whatever reason? This guy is a criminal and no better than any of the virus and malware writers out there. Do any of you have a clue as to how much these cyber-criminals actually cost the rest of us? Here's a partial answer: More than I want to pay.

It's not stealing. It's copyright infringement. Yes, it's illegal, and (usually) should be. Yes, it's (usually) wrong. But it's still not stealing, and yes, the distinction does matter.

Right. Steal something $100 and it's petty theft. "infringe" on some copyrighted software of the same value and it's a federal case.

The idle man does not know what it is to enjoy rest.
