Just to clear things up to people about what a hacker is-

Quote
In common usage, a hacker is a person who breaks into computers and computer networks, either for profit or motivated by the challenge.
(Wikipedia).

If you have a poorly selected password, or a good one that a person knows and then uses to gain access to your account, it is not hacking.

The same goes for if a member is given any access over what regular members have, and they make unwanted changes to your site.

Hacking would be if someone went through the network, or sought out and decisively exploited a bug in order to harm these forums. :)
