Looking up the dictionary shows only that compromise has the definition:
to reach an agreement in which everyone involved accepts less that what they wanted at first
However, what is the meaning of compromise in the following contexts?
Hackers hit Acer website, compromise 40K users' data
Hacker Claims Full Compromise of Royal Navy Website
In Longman dictionary of Contemporary English there's no relevant explanations.
In Oxford dictionary there's no relevant explanations.
In Merriam-Webster there's no relevant explanations.
I found a definition here, which seems right:
to expose or make vulnerable to danger, suspicion, scandal, etc.; jeopardize: a military oversight that compromised the nation's defenses.
But this explanation is different from what says by WikiDictionary, one says exposé to danger, the other says breach into system what's the exact meaning of this word?
