[Ilugc] Hacking and Activism

The term "ethical hacking" usually makes no sense because "ethics" is
part of "hacking".
Cracking is reserved for "actual methods for illegally subverting the
security of computer systems".
Terms like "ethical cracking" may make sense in complex
corporate-political scenarios

But the FSMK people have decided to use the term "ethical hacking" for
"hacking + Activism" and possibly beyond.

Is this a good move?
