    Yup.. in the linux/unix world.. a hacker is used to describe someone who modifies others codes to achieve other/more objectives.

    The good hackers are termed white hats & bad hackers are termed black hats.
    There are also plenty of seminars etc for white hat hackers.

    Oic ... I've always thought that 'hacker' is a negative term

    Probably because of the movie by the same name

    Jsbn is right. He may not be the guy. It could be someone else doing it using his identity. It may even be a simple keylogger that is running on her pc. Just reformat it and secure the pc with the latest patch and also anti-spyware, anti-virus, firewall etc.
