What is hacking?
Hacking is unauthorized use of computer and network resources. (The term "hacker" originally meant a very gifted programmer. In recent years though, with easier access to multiple systems, it now has negative implications.)
Types of Hackers
- Script Kiddies or Cyber-Punks: Between age 12-30; bored in school; get caught due to bragging online.
- Professional Criminals or Crackers: Make a living by breaking into systems and selling the information.
- Coders and Virus Writers: These have strong programming background and write code but wonâ€™t use it themselves; have their own networks called â€œzoosâ€; leave it to others to release their code into â€œThe Wildâ€ or Internet.
