Ethical Hacking

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 won’t use it themselves; have their own networks called “zoos”; leave it to others to release their code into “The Wild” or Internet.
