from wiki
Pwn is a slang term that implies domination and/or humiliation of a rival. It sprang from the similar term "owned" and is used primarily in the Internet gaming culture to taunt an opponent that has just been soundly defeated. 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. An outside party who has "owned" or "pwned" a system has obtained unauthorized administrative control of the system.

The term was one of 16 to appear on the 2006 "List of Words and Phrases Banished from the Queen's English for Misuse, Overuse and General Uselessness," released annually by Lake Superior State University.[1]

The word "pwn" [2][3] may have arisen and spread as a typo (or fat-finger) of the word "own," arising from the proximity of the 'p' and 'o' keys on a standard English keyboard. Sometime in the 1980s, along with the advent of the hacker phenomenon, "pwned" became a synonym for "hacked" or "taken over by exploitation of a vulnerability." The word "pwn" remains in use as Internet social-culture slang meaning: to take unauthorized control of someone else or something belonging to someone else by exploiting a vulnerability.

Thanks for the explanation Buzzard.

When I play Star Wars - BattleFront II, I see that term being used alot.

I put it in my list of "Least Favorite Game Chat Words" right under "Noob".

Mine could be summed up in one of these ways:


prodigal daughter back from far country

left the pigpen, was welcomed home

one sheep He left ninety-nine for

returned prodigal amazed at His mercy
