Ethical AnalysisIntroductionHacker-for hire is a website that gave out the names of their clients who had requested theexecution of the hacking services. The website is based out of Australia and Sweden andprovides its clients with the hacking processes and services. In order to carry out the hackingservices, the site asked its clients, that is, the buyers for their demographics and contact details.The buyers trusted the site to keep their information private; however, the privacy of theinformation was violated by releasing the details of 60 buyers in public (Tung, 2015).The report analyzes the situation on the basis of a number of different ethical principles andtheories.Analysis as per Utilitarianism TheoryUtilitarianism theory of ethics states that an action is ethically justified only when the utility ofthe action is positive and accurate. The ethical justification is decided on the utility as a primemeasure. The utility of an action is the pleasure that the doer and the associated parties receive inthe form of pleasure and with the absence of any form of negativity or evil attached with it.The website in this case study deals in the line of business that is not legal and is not approved bythe Government. The buyers, that is, the customers that contract the website for the execution ofhack jobs receive the pleasure and satisfaction in return. They may also feel disturbed with theresults of the hacking services. Also, the system/application/device owners may suffer from theleaking of their private details and information (Bentham, 2005).The website then revealed the buyer details in public without their knowledge or consent. Thisled to a lot of social and personal embarrassment for the victims. Also, their personal lives weredisturbed.The utility of the actions that were executed by the website caused more damage and sufferingsas compared to the pleasure and enjoyment. As per this theory of ethics, the actions executed bythe website are termed as completely unethical (Gamlund, 2012).3
