This post tells you what hacking means,who a hacker is ,how hacking is done, and their methods of exploitation.I am exclusively writing this post for people to aware of System loopholes(vulnerabilities),hackers ideology and terminology but not to hack any accounts or servers. If u want to hack any account , penetrate into system,THIS POST IS NOT FOR YOU…
According to the recent survey done,Do u know that 65% of the internet users are prone to be get hacked.Let us continue now to what ,why and how and different questions arises in our minds about hacking.
WHAT HACKING DOES ACTUALLY MEAN????
The term “hacking” has got many definitions throughout the cyber field. According to me, It is a Lust for breaking a secured computer system ; it may be a account or a whole web server or simply a personal computer.
“The Classic definition is something that is being used for something other than what is made for.
The more Modern definition is a computer system that someone who shouldn’t have access to has gained access“
If u ask anyone who has a little bit knowledge about hacking , they will say that “One who is a internet geek and sends a virus to harm a system” is what we usually get to know. Many of us think that like in movies where one type many programs and instantly break into a system. If we think like that, it will be of a foolish sort of business.
A lot of people say that hacking is only done in cyberspace, but electronics are generally a hub of a hacking. Many people think that hacking is all bad, but it is not the case.Hackers are nerds.
It is a saying that “A best programer is a Good hacker”,So for being a good hacker you need to know almost knowledge about programing.
Hackers are of three types..
Black hat hackers:-
Blackhat hackers are bad ones, who hack for commercial gain, destroy other’s computer and break security system for some sort of fun.Usually these hackers are highlighted in news channels ,especially in a western movie in which such a character would stereotypically wear a black hat in contrast to the hero’s white hat, especially in black and white movies.
White hat hackers
They are good ones. They spend their time in securing the network and making it safe for everyone. They usually have years of experience in network security who is specialized in penetration testing and in other testing methodologies to ensure the security of an organization’s information systems.
Grey hat hackers
Grey hat hackers are those people who fall in between white hats and black hats.They usually don’t go out of their way to be bad, but may do illegal things every now and then. They usually do not hack for personal gain or have malicious intentions, but may be prepared to technically commit crimes during the course of their technological exploits in order to achieve better security.
Now you have understood that what does hacking actually tells and differnet types of hackers around us and let me tell you why hacking is done…
