Beware of GermanWiper

This ransomeware is not actually ransomeware and the hackers have no intention of giving you your files back! That's because they are not encrypted but are permanently deleted!!!

I don't think any hacker can be trusted?

Not true! A little back history... To "hack" something means to be able to create your own code on the fly to make software do what you want it to do...think McGiver, LOL A hacker is someone who can do just that.

The problem is that most people have come to associate the term "hacker" with the bad guys and not the good. The same people who we get info on how to protect our sites and servers are also hackers..."ethical hackers", as they are known today.

I don't think I would call myself a hacker if I was good at code writing? Perhaps coder or code writer?

I'd have to agree with you there.
