Hacking is the process of seeking vulnerabilities or weaknesses in your computer systems that attackers can exploit to gain access, steal information, and sometimes even disable its operation. There are many ways of hacking into a computer. These include methods like brute force attacks, social engineering, trojan horse, security exploits, and others.

You can think of your computer as a house. Hacking would be like a thief trying to find the best and most efficient way to break in.
