Top 5 Countries with Largest Number of Hacker



Hacker is the person who engages in hacking. Hacking is the act of unauthorised intrusion into a computer or network, thereby leading to a compromise of digital devices or even the network as a whole. The concept of hackers is more than mere programmers who are talented and often self-taught and seek to gain by disrupting systems. Hacking, therefore, is an umbrella term. It encompasses a lot of activities under it, among which most are cyber-related. Malware and malicious cyber-attacks on computing public, enterprises, and governments are one of the most common forms of hacking. Although, ironically after the release of the 1982 American sci-fi film Tron, a gang of teenage hackers broke into computer systems throughout US or Canada. Thereby setting the earliest record of hacking. To know more about cyber-attacks check here: Data Breach & Cyber Attacks in 2018



Types of hackers

The word hacker is a broad term. Fixing it to a definite section of people are restricting it. There are various types of hackers.

It is difficult to pinpoint the real reason behind the hacking. Therefore, based on their reasons behind hacking, it is possible to categorise them. Therefore the following types are:

  1. Financial gain: This section mostly includes thefts of credit card numbers or defrauding banking systems.
  2. Following hacking subculture, some hackers leave their mark on websites they hack to boast about the deed.
  3. The competing organisation put hackers to use for gaining information on each other.
  4. State or nation sponsored hacking to steal national intelligence or destabilize infrastructures of the target nation.



White and Black Hats

As the reason behind the act of hacking varies, it gives rise to 2 types of hackers. The good ones or popularly known as ‘white hat hackers’ and the opposite section, commonly known as ‘black hat’. While the white hats help to improve the security of an organisation by finding vulnerabilities and fixing them, on the other hand, the black hats do the opposite. Stealing something valuable for any malicious action is the main aim of black hats.

In between these, there is a third type of hacker or grey hats. These are those hackers who use their skills to break into systems or networks without authorisation. But unlike black hats, these hackers, they usually report the vulnerability to the owner and offers to repair the same for a small fee.
