Script Kiddies: Vermin Of The Internet? - Conclusion
(Page 6 of 6 )

In this article we've learn what a script kiddie is, what they do and what you can do to stop them. Sure, a script kiddie may sound harmless, but if he gets a trojan running on the right machine then some serious damage can be caused.

The idea of hacking in the dark starts most script kiddies, and before too long they're learning advanced C/C++ and probing government PC's, etc. Script kiddies *can* get big and bad, but by stopping them before they start we can all work together to stop this sort of activity from crippling our PC's.
