Use of the term "hacker"
Given there is a general move to making this term less derogatory given initiatives like GovHack and other such Hack-a-thon type events in govt, I move that the language here be changed. Either making it clear we are talking about "black hat" or using something along the lines of "malicious person".

Replace the term hacker with "malicious attacker" in para. 28 Closed Fri 8 Apr 2016
Looks like solid agreement here. Which raises another point... we had 62% of contributors vote... does this indicate enough consensus to action this change in policy wording? I can imagine we might use this process for upcoming motions so would be good to discuss what would be considered "agreed" :nz:
The term is too casual and the meaning of the term hacker culturally has changed.
