Definition Edit

A hack is any software in which a significant portion of the code was originally another program. Many hacked programs simply have the copyright notice removed. Some hacks are done by programmers using code they have previously written that serves as a boilerplate for a set of operations needed in the program they are currently working on. In other cases it simply means a draft.

The term is commonly misused to imply theft of software.
