Internet & Networking Hackers Crackers have attempted to topple key parts of the internet's backbone, in one of the most significant attacks of recent years. The target was servers that help to direct global internet traffic. In the early hours of Tuesday three key servers were hit by a barrage of data in what is known as a distributed denial-of-service attack. There is no evidence so far of damage, which experts are saying is testament to the robust nature of the internet.

How about "criminals"?

Why do people insist in referring to these people in some specific way, when they are simply criminals?

If they would be referred to as criminals, then *anyone* would have no trouble figuring out their nature, and there would be a better chance that hackers could get back the respect they deserve.
