Some 40 percent hacked for the first time after they turned 18; one in 
three say they hacked for fun, 22 percent say the main motivation for 
hacking was curiosity, and 15 percent cited profit as their motivation. 
The report surveyed 1,000 college students at eight universities in

online shopping accounts (10 percent).
