How to use hacker in a sentence?

  1. Serhiy Demedyuk:

    There are constant attacks - they go from simple (software) to applications that one or another employee uses, payment occurs in cryptocurrency in most cases ... and from the same wallets that were used to finance the previous attacks. This indicates that the same hacker organizations that are under the control of Russian special agencies are engaged in this.

  2. Roger Stone:

    The intelligence agencies pushing this false Russian narrative through a series of illegal hacks have hurt my ability to make a living and are soiling my reputation, the government is in possession of no evidence whatsoever that I colluded with the Russian State. Any inference that my innocuous fully disclosed Twitter exchange and tweets with a hacker known as Gruccifer 2.0 (sic), who may not may not be a Russian asset, constitutes 'collusion' is disproved by the content, the facts and the timeline of events.

  3. President Obama:

    No foreign nation, no hacker, should be able to shut down our networks, steal our trade secrets, or invade the privacy of American families, especially our kids.

    The more information, the easier identity theft is and the more valuable the profiles that the hacker can sell to third parties.

  5. Domenico Savarese:

    Although accident rates will theoretically fall, new risks will come with autonomous vehicles, what should be done in the case of a faulty software algorithm? Should manufacturers be required to monitor vehicles post-sale in the case of a malfunction or a hacker attack?
