    Having the word 'hacked' in the definition for 'hacker' may not be helpful to someone doesn't know what to 'hack' means.

    A better definition may be:
    A hacker is someone who accesses computer systems without permission.

    You should be aware that the association of 'hacking' with email (and even voice-mails) is a response to a very recent set of revelations. Computer hackers were hacking into systems (gaining illicit access] long before email was invented - and even longer before voice-mail was.
