Pwn

 

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

 

Pwn (/oʊn/, /poʊn/, /pəʔˈoʊn/, /pɔːn/, /piˈoʊn/, /pwəʔˈn̩/) is a leetspeak slang term that implies domination or humiliation of a rival, used primarily in the Internet gaming culture to taunt an opponent that has just been soundly defeated. Past tense is sometimes spelled pwnt (pronounced with a t sound) or pwned (with the standard d sound). Examples include “pwnage” or “you just got pwned”. It can also be used, especially by non-gamers, in the context of getting “pwned” by The Man.

In Internet security jargon, to “pwn” means “to compromise” or “to control”, specifically another computer (server or PC), web site, gateway device, or application; it is synonymous with one of the definitions of hacking or cracking. An outside party who has “owned” or “pwned” a system has obtained unauthorized administrative control of the system.
