can we call decripting others encripted codes also as HACKING

The correct term for this (provided, of course, you are doing it without the encryption key etc) is cryptanalysis. The encrypted text is called the ciphertext, the text before encryption (and after decryption) is called the plaintext.

for(74,117,115,116){\$::a.=chr};((\$_.='qwertyui')&&
(tr/yuiqwert/her anot/))for(\$::b);for(\$::c){\$_.=\$^X;
/(p.{2}l)/;\$_=\$1}\$::b=~/(..)\$/;print("\$::a\$::b \$::c hack\$1.");

• But can we call it HACKING. Actually there is an event organised by the name of Hacking and they are asking to write encription and decription algo. Is That OK

• Well you can develop an encryption/decryption algo that can be implemented in a software program meaning programming.Programming is a part of Hacking and thus cryptography as well.Well first you gotta define Hacking it's not that simple but to simplify my answer yes cryptography is a part of the big Hacking family.
