hacks (as a plural noun) can be defined the same as "cracks" where you either manipulate code of a program to allow unlawfull use (i.e. stealing a serial number for a product that you didn't buy. or manipulating trial software in such a way that you don't need a serial number)
Hacking (as a verb) or being hacked (also verbage)...would be defined as gaining unauthorized access to a system (be that a network, website, personal computer)...and this can be done in as many ways as you could ever think of..
as storm suggested...the best way not to get "hacked" is to have a well configured firewall...and to be smart...remember...the only way to make sure your computer is hack proof is to unplug it from the wall and burry it in your back yard encased in 3 feet of concrete....if you use the machine...or have it connected to the interent....there's nothing that will stop someone who has the right knowledge and the desire to get in (of course...the likely hood of your personal machine being "hacked" for monetary gain is low...you're more likely to get infected with spyware that makes your computer part of a zombie network)
