    How sad to have to use the term "ethical hacking" because the RAE got it into their head to admit the wrong term hacker!

    If it makes you sad, don't use it, or better yet, show your creativity and define the activity with a new and correct term according to your appreciation of the correct use of the Spanish language.

    Sad is that you have anchored the term "hacker" as a synonym for bad lake.
