God and the Hacker

Written by Wayne Patterson

My computer was recently hacked and infected with a virus. This virus caused some files to continuously write to my hard drive using up all of my free space. The computer would suddenly freeze and I would get a low disk space message. Since this only occurred when certain programs were started you can imagine my frustration. I am not a computer expert and it took me several days to figure outrepparttar problem. Then I spent several hours deletingrepparttar 126954 infected programs and several more hours restoring my operating system. Not exactly a fun way to spend a beautiful Saturday.

Alongrepparttar 126955 way I updated my obviously obsolete firewall and virus protection programs. The new scan eliminated several other viruses I had been unaware were infecting my computer. I had updated my operating system but had neglected to also update these programs and to be sure they were compatible withrepparttar 126956 new system. Another change wasrepparttar 126957 switch from a dial-up connection to DSL. Withrepparttar 126958 new connection my computer is always connected torepparttar 126959 internet. Untilrepparttar 126960 hacking occurrence, I was unaware ofrepparttar 126961 extreme nature ofrepparttar 126962 risk I was taking with my computer and sensitive personal information. You may want to read another hacker inspired article about identify theft, "What do You Mean I Am Not Me," that is available onrepparttar 126963 Scam Central page of our website.

While waiting for various programs to load, I was preparing forrepparttar 126964 next day's lesson since it was my turn to teach our Sunday School class. Midway throughrepparttar 126965 lesson I was struck byrepparttar 126966 similarity between ourselves and our computers.

Inrepparttar 126967 "Dial-up" mode we are connected torepparttar 126968 world only for short spurts of time. Our presence is not likely to be detected byrepparttar 126969 "Great Hacker." Since we do not accept many new things into our lives, we do not come into contact withrepparttar 126970 virus demons that can short-circuit our goals. As a result we allow our personal firewall to crumble and corrode. This happens when we stop going to church or praying on a regular basis. We lose contact with our Christian support group that has sustained us inrepparttar 126971 past. We are doing just fine on our own. God has no place in our daily lives and we only think of Jesus at Easter or Christmas. We have also picked up a few "minor" viruses. Maybe we drink too much, but only on special occasions. Perhaps we mistreat our family, but only once in a while. We have allowed these viruses to slip into our lives because we convince ourselves that they do not really interfere with our day to day operations.
