There is something wrong with millennials, but I couldn't yet figure out.

What happens if a hacker recognises your code calls or path search text and replaces them with NOPs or 'return EXIT_SUCCESS?'
Or am I being silly?

A real hacker will probably just write their own version of the plugin (or application), as it's way more fun than breaking yours.

A cracker will NOP over the checks and your best bet for avoiding that is to have enough different checks spread all over your binary (also spread the data used to check!) that hopefully they'll get bored trying to find them all and move on to some easier target.

In other words... you have no idea what a "hacker" even means.

http://www.catb.org/esr/faqs/hacker-howto.html#what_is should give you an idea, with some quotes for emphasis:


The Jargon File contains a bunch of definitions of the term ‘hacker’, most having to do with technical adeptness and a delight in solving problems and overcoming limits. If you want to know how to become a hacker, though, only two are really relevant.

There is a community, a shared culture, of expert programmers and networking wizards that traces its history back through decades to the first time-sharing minicomputers and the earliest ARPAnet experiments. The members of this culture originated the term ‘hacker’. Hackers built the Internet. Hackers made the Unix operating system what it is today. Hackers make the World Wide Web work. If you are part of this culture, if you have contributed to it and other people in it know who you are and call you a hacker, you're a hacker.

[...]

There is another group of people who loudly call themselves hackers, but aren't. These are people (mainly adolescent males) who get a kick out of breaking into computers and phreaking the phone system. Real hackers call these people ‘crackers’ and want nothing to do with them. Real hackers mostly think crackers are lazy, irresponsible, and not very bright, and object that being able to break security doesn't make you a hacker any more than being able to hotwire cars makes you an automotive engineer. Unfortunately, many journalists and writers have been fooled into using the word ‘hacker’ to describe crackers; this irritates real hackers no end.


You have hackers to thank for the fact that you are even surfing the web right now, because without hackers the whole thing would probably not exist at all. As I self-identify as a hacker, I find it highly offensive in a very personal way when people mis-use the term.

Haha, sure. I said ‘h/cr’didn’t I? I’m sorry it covers a definition you like. You knew who I meant anyway.
