Computers Subskills

Source Tech Revolution pg. 70
In dynamic hacking, the Computers skill is broken into three subskills used for various tasks: Deceive, Hack, and Process. Deceive represents your ability to hide or misrepresent your identity to avoid detection, confound foes, and trick your way past safeguards. Hack represents your prowess to manipulate programs, exploit vulnerabilities, and brute-force your way into a computer’s files. Process represents your ability to identify threats and opportunities, as well as change, sustain, defend, or repair your own programs. Your modifier for each of these subskills equals your Computers skill modifier, plus any modifiers based on how you configure your hacking persona (see below).
