Most of them are just script kiddies who think they are cool hackers, but they are not. At the last company I worked for, one script kiddie kept trying to get into our network. I let him into a safe place in one of our systems, managed to obtain his IP address, send him a trojan, broke into his system, then sent him a little present, and a registry startup entry for it, designed to flash his BIOS the next time he started up. The BIOS was flashed with information on a different hard drive than what he had, which would cause the drive spin too fast the second time he restarted his computer, thus burning it out. Guess what? After a couple of more days of lame attempts to get into our system, I never heard back from him again. Gee, I wonder what happened to him? I bet mommy and daddy were really pissed too. LOL.
