Hacking! Full Information |

In today's world, you must have heard the name of hacking at some time.

Today we will know what is Hacking and how many types of hackers are there.  Nowadays the demand for computers and smartphones has increased so much. So the hacking activity is rapidly increasing. In this article, I will tell you all the information about hacking.

What is Hacking?

Hacking is identifying weakness in computer systems or networks to exploit its weaknesses to gain access.
 Ex. of hacking - Wifi network hacking, password hacking to gain access to the system , network, etc.

Types of hackers -

Hackers are mainly 4 types.


1.White Hat Hacker

White hat hackers or ethical hackers are known to many of us for their ethical behavior. They are the cybersecurity experts who are hired by government and private organizations to hack their systems and surface the vulnerabilities most ethically. Ethical hackers penetrate and identify loopholes to protect the IT infrastructure from other malicious cyber attackers.

In short, these are the right people who hack your system intending to find vulnerabilities and help you in protecting it from malware or other types of attacks.

2. Black Hat Hacker

Black hat hackers are the real culprits that we should be worried about. Whenever you hear about an incident, remember that a black hat hacker is behind it.

These attackers are inspired mostly by monetary benefit or other criminal intentions. They usually target financial institutions, healthcare, or businesses where they can reach the crucial personal information. These hackers also intrude on the personal computers of individuals to access personal business and financial information.

3. Gray Hat Hackers

Gray hat hackers stand in the mid of white hat and black hat hackers. Though they may not use the hacked information for personal gains, however, their act is backed by both good as well as bad intentions.

For example, a gray hat hacker intrudes an organization’s infrastructure and leaks the vulnerability over the internet or informs this to the management, to prove his hacking skills or to ruin the brand image.

A gray hat hacker does not take any information from the victim organization while intruding their network. That means he is not a white hat hacker. Neither he holds any legal authorization to hack the organization’s infrastructure to consider him like a black hat hacker either.

In brief, a gray hat hacker is someone who hacks without ethical permissions but does not use the compromised data for any benefit.

4. Script Kiddies

An amateur hacker who has no good coding skills usually download ready tools or uses available hacking codes from other developers and hackers to impress their friends or gain attention.

Script Kiddies don’t care about learning the hacking script seriously. They launch an attack without bothering about its quality by using off-the-shelf codes and tools. The most common cyberattacks by script kiddies would include DoS and DDoS attacks.
