    Hey
    SEMrush
    How bad is it to get a hacker to wipe a personal computer, and how would i go about doing so? Is there big jail time for anything like this?

    It's illegal to cause damage and 'hack'. So don't do it and if you want to do something dangerous don't endanger others with you, do it your self.

    You mean wipe somebody else's computer without their permission?
    Why do you want to do this?

    What kind of access do you have to the target computer? Depending on the stupidity of the user, you could probably just send them a batch file.

    It's not illegal to "hack", it's illegal to commit crimes. :)

    so your telling me I can access your computer without permission backdoor you and just leave and that wouldn't be illegal? or are you reffering to a different type of hack?

    sounds like you wish to erase some evidence of a deal or something? :rolleyes:

    what you're trying to do is a crime and misuse of a person's skills ;)

    1. you get goal accompished

    2. similar treat to this

    not only will you be prosecuted with jail time, you will also be made to pay big time. not to mention the fact that your family and friends will be frowned upon

    I think it's about as bad as vandalism or destruction of property. But they can get you for a multitude of crimes depending on what sort of "hack" you do.

    It's illegal that's for sure

    It's legall if you hire one to test your networl/servers/site security

    In other case is like hiring a hit man

    That's exactly what I was thinking.

    You might as well just break in and steal his computer, same results - A new boyfriend on E Block!!

    To test the security of a system, normally companies hire security consultant firms to do PIN tests and such, they are not called hackers but consultants :)

    Good luck! For a hacker it shouldn't be that hard.
