The world isn't run by weapons anymore, or energy or money. It's run by little ones and zeroes, little bits of data. It's all just electrons.
~ Cosmo about how the world is run by computers.
Crackers are technologically-based Criminals; they often use their skills to steal information from confidential sources for blackmailing or other purposes, money from bank accounts or the disruption of computer systems to cause havoc or framing people for crimes they didn't commit. At their most extreme they can be Cyberterrorists.

They are commonly confused with the similar Hackers. In reality a Hacker is more neutral and skilled at making Machines in general do things outside specifications while Crackers do this illegally and/or immorally. As such Crackers are Hackers but not always vice-versa.

Sadly these are another kind of Real-Life Villains whose work can be found as Cybersecurity Breachers and traces left by other Cyberattackers; they have become especially prevalent in modern eras since the rise of technology.
