I have always told myself that if I understood a system, I could figure out how to manipulate it. Lawyers are able to find flaws in the legal system because they possess a strong understanding of the field. Any good chemist has the capability of creating potentially dangerous chemicals that could wreak havoc on others. Anyone well versed in the field of computing can find flaws in a computer system and take advantage of them
Thanks again to all of you for your advice, cautions, and resources. I am understanding all of this a little bit more thanks to your help, and I'm going to try to stay away from the illegal areas that have been pointed out.
