What is Computer hacking?

Computer hacking refers to gaining unauthorized access to, and hence some measure of control over, a computer facility, and most countries now have specific legislation in place to deter those who might wish to practice this art and science. In some jurisdictions, unauthorized access alone constitutes a criminal offense, even if the hacker attempts nothing further. However, in practice, hackers generally have a particular target in mind, so their unauthorized access leads to further acts, which national law might also define as criminal activities.

Hacking is typically technical in nature (like creating malvertising that deposits malware in a drive-by attack requiring no user interaction).

Type Of Hackers

  1. White Hat Hacker

First up, we have the perfect type of hacker to break the stereotype. The white-hat hacker is a good guy, as ironic as it may sound. White Hackers, white hat hackers, or ethical hackers are the people who test existing internet infrastructures to research loopholes in the system. They create algorithms and perform multiple methodologies to break into systems, only to strengthen them. Think of this as a lockpick, who would work his way around locks, only to inform the owners of how to make the locks work better. Famous white hat hackers have historically been pivotal in ensuring that large corporations maintain a strong network framework so that it is unbreakable against all other types of hacking. From being employees of the Government to being private consultants, white hackers help the internet be a better and safer place.

Simply put, these are the bad guys. Black hat hackers are responsible for all that is wrong with hacking. These guys break into systems purely with negative intentions. From stealing credit card information to altering public databases, a black hat hacker looks to gain fame or monetary benefits from exploiting the loopholes in internet frameworks. Famous black hat hackers have notoriously robbed banks and financial institutions of millions of dollars and invaluable private data.

  1. Grey Hat Hacker

A grey hat hacker usually has mixed intentions. As the color code implies, this hacker type does not have the good intentions of a white hat hacker, nor does he have the ill intentions of a black hacker. A grey hat would break into systems but never for his own benefit. Famous grey hat hackers have exploited systems only to make the information public, and to bring to limelight vast datasets of information that contains wrongdoings.
