Crackers are people who try to gain unauthorized access to computers. This is normally done through the use of many special program’s installed on the machine. A lot of crackers also try to gain access to resources through the use of password cracking software, which tries billions of passwords to find the correct one for accessing a computer.

This depends upon the different program’s are hiding on the PC. Different programs can do different amount of damages. However, most allow a hacker to smuggle another program onto your PC. This means if a hacker can’t do something using special program, he can easily put something else onto your computer. Hackers can see everything you are doing, and can access any file on your disk. Hacker can write files, delete files, edit files and do practically anything to a file that could be done to a file. A hacker could install several programs on to your system without your knowledge. Such program could also be used to steal information such as passwords and credit card information.

2) Send invalid data to applications or network services , which causes abnormal termination or behavior of the applications or services.

3) Flood a computer or the entire network with traffic until a shutdown occurs became of the overload.
