Major Types of Hackers And what you should know about them.
Basically has we said earlier we have three majoy types of hacker stated below :
There are three types of hackers:
1. White hat
2. Black hat
3. Gray hat.
A white hat (also known as ethical) hacker tries to breach network systems in order to help
businesses and organizations in improving their digital defenses.
A Black hat hacker,
meanwhile, accesses digital records and/or devices for malicious purposes.
Black hat refers to a hacker who breaks into a computer system or network with malicious intent.
A black hat hacker may exploit security vulnerabilities for monetary gain; to steal or destroy private data; or to alter, disrupt or shut down websites and networks.
Also a black hat hacker is a person who attempts to find computer security vulnerabilities and exploit them for personal financial gain or other malicious reasons.
A Gray hat
hacker is a combination of the first two types: he may be a white hat this time and become
a black hat in the next.
Gray hat describes a cracker (or, if you prefer, hacker) who exploits a security weakness in a computer system or product in order to bring the weakness to the attention of the owners. Unlike a black hat, a gray hat acts without malicious intent. The goal of a gray hat is to improve system and network security.
Note: There are laws that prohibit Black hat hacking. You can get incarcerated if
you’ll try to access digital information without the owner’s permission. so it’s better to become an ethical hacker (White hat).
