Default main thing hackers go for?

what is the main thing hackers go for? and how do i protect that "main thing" from being hacked?
I've looked around this forum and saw some good ways like for example changing BIOS password and making the "Admin" password longer for windows start up!

again,
what is the main thing they go after?
o ya!
and how do they go through roots of programs even anti-virus programs and how do you prevent that from happening?

Short Story: some kid sent me a fake rs3 website! obviously fake! and i felt bad for the noobs that would go on and get there account hacked so I flooded his server overnight ...lol...i made my own little script that would type in a whole bunch of user names and pass and enter them in...he had over 10,000 random log in entries!
ehhehehehe!!!
he got so madd but it was soo worth it...lol..i let my little script run over night and it logged 10,00 entries onto his computer! hahaha
