Types of Hackers?

I'm a bit late to the party but I've always viewed the term "hacker" as a sort of title, something bestowed upon you by others. A person can't really decide that they are a hacker, that isn't for them to say. It isn't about what you think of yourself, since that shit is all in your head anyway. It's all mostly about how other people view you. (just my opinion obviously)

Yeah. That's what I was getting at - if you gain unauthorised access to something you shouldn't you're considered by most others a "hacker". Especially the media. Especially when you upload all the company files you just downloaded.

#2 is just the Fox News definition(kind of like every gun is an AR-15).  We old school guys call them criminals, not hackers.  


That's not the definition of hack either...

Neoconservative rhetoric Fox pushes is basically controlled opposition to neomarxist propaganda of CNN, CBS, MSNBC, etc. Basically every shill on mainstream media belongs to same ethno-religious collective.

Tough gun laws were instituted in places like the UK, Australia, etc and they lost freedom of speech about 20 years later. Now they want to take away your encryption. When the Bill of Rights was written by 56 white men and signed in English back in 1776, civilians owned the same weapons as the military. That was the intent of the founding fathers. The right to bear arms isn't about hunting, sport shooting, or home defense, it's to defend you from a tyrannical government. If you are thinking otherwise you are missing the point. Countries that submit gun rights loose their other rights down the road.

On a personal note I'm politically blacklisted from having a real cybersecurity job but I know how to hack br0. I write multi-vector blended threats for fun. That doesn't make me a bad person.

But it's true. I'm sick to death of every moralfag cybersecurity blogger using images of hackers in hoodies and balaclavas as if they are making back ally deals wtih drug dealers and sex workers. I'm also sick of cyberpunk graphics that have nothing to do with hacking.

The majority of hackers are generally unskilled curiosity seekers.

I don't really care what kind of hat they wear because most "white hats" while pretending to have the moral high ground will stock, d0x, and harass anyone they don't like. Security researchers will steal your work and report it to microshaft for goodboy points. Also I can nearly guarantee someone on this forum has a digital profile on you by now. Deal with it. The hacker's world is a little more cloak and dagger than muh white hats, black hats, and skids.

Hacking in general is a very broad based term.

You will usually find that most have a favored 'specialist' area in which they develop an expertise in, as Its quite difficult to be a kung-fu master level 11 in all.

For example, some prefer exploiting Web Applications on the server side, others on the client side......some specialize in Browser based attacks, whilst others are guru's in AP and Network exploitation etc etc.

Some hone in on Remote Code Execution exploits, others on Cross-Site Scripting exploits, others on SQL/SOAP and other Injection techniques.....anyway, you get the drift.



Very true words.......imo......😎
