They've been getting footloose and fancy free with these terms for a while, and now have adopted them, just like when criminal hackers were called crackers, and now criminals are lumped into the same term 'hackers', right along with the white-hats. Just doesn't seem to be a way to stop these loose abuses of the terminology.
