And there are in total seven types of hackers, namely, white hat, black hat, grey hat, blue hat, red hat, green hat, and script kiddies. White hat hackers are legal hackers who strengthen the security of faulty systems. On the other hand, black hat hackers use illegal ways to harass others.

Hacking Names From Movies  

Hacking is one of the things that the movies glorify. Somehow these technology freaks seem so cool on the big screen. And we often get very fascinated by movie characters.

In the digital world, there is a hacker attack every 35 seconds. The most famous hacking documentary, my personal favorite, was We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks made in 2013. Adrian Lamo is still considered the greatest hacker who introduced hacking to the whole world.
