Hello coders, I am back with a new article as always. Today, I am going to talk about the types of hackers in the tech world. When we talk about hacking, there are mainly 3 types of hackers that you should know about.
1. White-Hat Hackers
These are the “good guys” or Ethical Hackers. White-Hat hackers work for a company usually as a penetration tester or a security researcher. Their job is to find vulnerabilities in the current system to lower the security risks as much as possible.
This is one of the most demanding jobs in the IT field currently. They specialize in ethical hacking tools, methodologies and techniques.
2. Black-Hat Hackers
These Black-Hat hackers aka crackers are the ones who hack into systems without authorization and steal sensitive data or even harm the system.
Even though White-hat hackers are well respected and have a higher demand, black-hat hacking is illegal because their intentions are not good.
3. Grey-Hat Hackers
These are the guys who hack for fun. They have a blended intention. They do not have authority to access the system which makes it illegal. But they do not steal any data or harm any process. They just like to show off the loopholes in the sites, get the attention of the public. They do it for their happiness.
In my opinion, ethical hacking is an interesting field for anyone to pursue. And the other thing is that you are never going to be jobless. As long as we use tech devices and systems, you are safe.
