To be a hacker, you need thousands of different skills, and a vast knowledge of current exploits to be successful. When you break into a private network, you can get in and out without anybody knowing, multiple times. Even if the people KNOW you're breaking in, they probably won't stop you if you're good.
It's not the same. Just isn't.

So you can't just turn it off, and if you do it probably has a fail safe switch that alarms the base in case of power loss (or the base requires a constant connection of data). Oh dear lord, you know nothing about home/company security. Don't forget motion alarm windows, where too much force triggers the main and then it goes to the base. Oh lordy, we have nubs in these peck of the woods.
Don't forget the guards, or cameras which should be on a separate system which also should have a fail safe for power outs.
Also, the only real way to get into a safe these days is with the proper equipment, your going to need oxy-acetylene or something like a thermite rod. If you don't have something like that you won't get through any of the metal, period. Unless you know how to unlock a banks security door to the vault, that's going to need some nice programming.
Yes, these days robbing a bank is actually really hard unless it's open. Seriously, it's not that easy. The more pristine the bank the harder it gets, that's just an average bank.

Yes they do, they generally get a differed/expunged sentence after though.
And if I can think of this type of security for a bank I'm pretty sure the banks can too. I'm willing to bet they can think of some really good things, beyond just digging a freakin whole. You watch too much Hollywood.Edited by mushroomboy - 6/9/11 at 6:35pm
