No, Patrick. Some of the power behind the word "hacking" has been lost over the last two DECADES as people in the media - like yourself and many, many others - wrongly apply it to the abusive or even illegal activities conducted by *crackers* and script kiddies.
It does real hackers in the technology professions a huge disservice when people continue to refer to such activities as "hacking" and such people as "hackers". It'd be a bit like if we all started referring to plagiarism as "journalism" and then real journalists would be pissed, because the term had been misappropriated for devious activities which don't have anything to do with "real journalists".
Also, whether or not there are crackers out there causing mischief, you are still responsible for as much of your own security as you can control. For example, not using the same password on every website you use and not using obvious or common passwords. If you use a different complex password at every site and service, then when one is compromised, it means very little to you - as long as they haven't compromised actual *data*, like a credit card number. Which, of course, you can also have control over if your bank offers something like "Save Shop" where you can use a specific credit card number generated just for each specific service, therefore limiting the extent of any of that data being lost.
Also, how is this videogames. I'd be more comfortable never knowing this happened in the first place.
