A computer expert who specialises in removing protection mechanisms from commercial software. These protections often limit (cripple) the software functionality or render the software unoperatable after a certain number of uses or when a expiry date is reached.
This activity is ilegal in many countries because it forces the software developers to increase the price of their products in order to recover lost revenue.
A cracker will usually have low level programming experience and a detailed technical understanding of commercial software protections.
Hardware protections are the best defence against crackers because they require great technical expertise to circumvent.

A device used to "crack" the seal on Nitrous cartridges for inhaling the N20 for a high. The cracker is commonly aluminum, brass or plastic and simply accepts a N20 cartridge (intended for dispensing whip-cream) and pierces the seal, allowing the gas to escape in a controlled fashion. A baloon is attached to the device to capture the gas and allow it to absorb enough heat to be inhaled safely.
