The first idea or thought that comes to our mind when we hear of word “hacking” is something illegal or something which is not approved. Hacking actually means breaching into someone’s information by getting into their computer system or network. Hacking is used to steal some information or anything that can be used against the person the information is stolen from or to use it for our own benefits. Hackers actually have an unauthorized access or control over the computer system or network for some bad or unethical purpose.
Hacking can be categorized into two types, Ethical Hacking and Non-ethical hacking. Ethical Hacking basically is an authorized hacking whereas on the other hand Unethical hacking on the other hand is an unauthorized hacking. Terms mentioned for Ethical hacking is ‘White Hat’ and for Unethical hacking it is ‘White Hat’. In ethical hacking the information is not misused or used for bad or wrong purposes. It is basically a testing system. But if we have a look at Unethical hacking, one can clearly observe that the information is illegally stolen and use for wrong purposes.
So, to conclude the argument we can say that hacking can be used for good purposes as well as for bad purposes too.
