It's a nice toy, but is it really necessary? Jeez, the Hacker didn't have to use any off-the-shelf crap back on the Citadel Station. When you boot that puppy up, you might as well be wearing a sign on your head that says: Hey, look at me, I'm a newbie!

Hacking Software comes in three levels of sophistication. Each time you find a software of a higher level than the currently equipped, it is automatically and permanently installed, raising your Hacking odds by 10% per Software level across the board.

It does not help for meeting minimum Hacking skill requirements.

Hack Software is officially illegal, but it is the rare station or craft where it cannot be found. When equipped, it allows one to hack into many computers aboard the ship (allowing access to restricted areas), shut down security systems, alter Replicator databases to allow purchase of previously restricted items, and other nasty tricks.
