It might be more effective if they upgraded their security...or take on a hacker who is better than those crackers trying to break in......er good luck with that....

And it might help if she and her spies learnt the terminology that identifies the crooks ie: recognise a hacker from a cracker, likewise the media.....Crackers (black hats) are the bad guys or crims or those out to cause damage, steal etc..... hackers(white hats) are mostly computer techs who cause no harm or damage when they enter your computer or leave it, they are the ones that upgrade test and secure your computer so that crackers find it harder to enter.....might help if they (the governmnet and the spy agencies) at least got that part of it right.
