Straightening Out the Terminology Most people have heard of hackers and malicious users. So who are these people? And why do you need to know about them? The next few sections give you the lowdown on these attackers. Hackers go for almost any system they think they can compromise. Malicious users go for systems they believe they can compromise for ill-gotten gains or revenge.
Malicious attackers are, generally speaking, both hackers and malicious users. For the sake of simplicity, I refer to both as hackers and specify hacker or malicious user only when I need to drill down further into their tools, techniques, and ways of thinking. Hackers enjoy exploring and learning how computer systems operate. They love discovering new ways to work — both mechanically and electronically. Technically, these criminals are crackers criminal hackers.
Crackers break into, or crack, systems with malicious intent. The personal gain they seek could be fame, profit, and even revenge. They modify, delete, and steal critical information, often making other people miserable. Gray hat hackers are a little bit of both. Whatever the case, most people have a negative connotation for the word hacker.David Sutton. It will certainly be an eye-opening experience. Network Security For Dummies. Dawn Dunkerley.
