Anyone who calls themselves a "hacker" is probably not.
Such fools only tell lies to make themselves appear big in their own minds.
They suffer from unwarranted self-importance and they deceive themselves.
Don't feed the egos of these foolish boasters who only use the programs of others to cause destruction.
What they do is not hacking, but vandalism.
A hacker is someone who writes code and fixes computer-related issues.

A malicious hacker is called a cracker, they usually have a cause (jihad etc) and they breach the security of enemy systems as an act of war, and they do it without revealing themselves, they tell no one of their cracking.
If they do, they are very foolish and deserve every bit of the punishment they are given.

I must agree with this statement. Hacking takes many years of computer knowledge, not just being smarter than the people that write the codes, hard enough in itself, but being smart enough to find your own way around and inside. People I know who call themselves "hackers", simply use programs to achieve this.
