Somewhat of a double-edged sword, the Hacker began her career as a saber-wielding fencer.

Now she sneaks into the secret recesses of computer programs where her attacks are swift and deadly. She only leaves once the damage has been done. Heroine to some and vile pirate to others, the Hacker doesn’t disguise her pleasure as she subdues codes and lashes at computer languages in her vicious, virtual manipulations. (source )
