TYPES OF COMPUTER HACKERS

A computer hacker is not the one who
spends all day in a dark room looking at
code on a monitor.
A good hacker has to be a good
programmer. there are many different
kinds of hackers, some are there to
harm and some are there to help.
1) White Hat
White Hat hackers are individuals who
hack into computer systems solely to
see how the computer's security
systems work.
2) Black Hat
Black Hat hackers are the complete
opposite of "White Hats." Black Hats
break into security systems in order to
steal credit card numbers, vandalize
websites or otherwise do harm.
3) Grey Hats
Grey Hat hackers are morally
ambiguous. They act in their own self-
interests and do not think about the
legal repercussions of their actions.
They do not actively seek to break the
law, but are not concerned if such is the
outcome.
4) Hacktivist
Hacktivists are individuals who hack
websites to further some form of
political or social agenda.
5) Script Kiddie
Script Kiddies are faux-hackers. They
use pre-packaged, pre-written software
to slip past Internet security protocols
and are generally looked down upon in
the various hacking communities.
6) Cyberterrorists
As the name implies, cyber-terrorists
use computers to engage in acts of
terrorism, often times using DoS (Denial
of Service) attacks to crash government
websites.
