 The Ethical Hacker 

The most common thought among general people about hackers is that hackers are computer criminals or corrupt personals.But they fail to recognise the fact that criminals and hackers in comparison are totally two different bank of the same river(in sense related to cyber world).Actually its not the fault of the common people but in major way Media is responsible for this. Hackers in reality are actually good and extremely intelligent people who by using their knowledge in a constructive manner help organisations, companies, goverment, etc. to secure documents and secret information on the internet. 

Most of the time, certain things are misunderstood in this world and so is the case of our hackers.

There are two types of hackers:
White Hat – These are considered the good guys. White hat hackers don’t use their skills for illegal purposes. They usually become Computer Security experts and help protect people from the Black Hats.

Black Hat – These are considered the bad guys. Black hat hackers usually use their skills maliciously for personal gain. They are the people that hack banks, steal credit cards, and deface websites.
These two terms came from the old western movies where the good guys wore white hats and the bad guys wore black hats.

Now if you’re thinking, “Oh boy! Being a black hat sounds awesome!”, Then I have a question for you. Does it sound cool to live in a cell the size of your bathroom and be someone’s butt buddy for many years? That’s what I thought.

Hope you understand what is the message of this post.
