A term describing a collective of like-minded, notorious hackers, the term was more popular in the 80s and 90s and as the advent of the script kiddie took over in popularity the public focus on hacker groups (and thus, the use of the term) has waned. Examples of such hacker groups include l0pht, Phalcon/Skism and Legion of Doom.
