Term used to describe wannabe hackers who use other people's programs and methods to cause annoyance on the internet. They are scorned by real hackers, as their actions often give the hacker commmunity a bad name while serving no real purpose. Typical actions of a script kiddy (or script kiddie, it can be spelt either way) include defacing web sites, hacking forum accounts, and so on.

A normally pre-teen computer user that 'borrows' hacker programs to cause mischief. They do not understand how to make or use a true virus, but that's how they get their kicks/ Incapable of trying anything like 'red alert' or 'nimbda', they flock like vultures when a real worm opens up a hole in someone's security.

It is generally assumed that script kiddies are juveniles who lack the ability to write sophisticated hacking programs or exploits on their own, and that their objective is to try to impress their friends or gain credit in computer-enthusiast communities.

n. (Hacker Lingo) One who relies on premade exploit programs and files ("scripts") to conduct his hacking, and refuses to bother to learn how they work. The script kiddie flies in the face of all that the hacker subculture stands for - the pursuit of knowledge, respect for skills, and motivation to self-teach are just three of the hacker ideals that the script kiddie ignores. While anyone can be a script kiddie, generally they are teenagers who want the power of the hacker without the discipline or training involved. Obviously anyone who follows this route aspires to be a blackhat, but most refuse to even dignify them with this term; "blackhat" generally implies having skills of your own.
Other common terms for the ubiquitous script kiddie are lamer, llama, jackass, pre-pubescent ten-year-old, and of course the most unique, asshat.
