hacked off

hacked off in Technology
jargon
(Analogous to "pissed off") Said of system administrators who have become annoyed, upset, or touchy owing to suspicions that their sites have been or are going to be victimised by crackers, or used for inappropriate, technically illegal, or even overtly criminal activities. For example, having unreadable files in your home directory called "worm", "lockpick", or "goroot" would probably be an effective (as well as impressively obvious and stupid) way to get your sysadmin hacked off at you.
