IS THERE A HACKER IN JOU?
Isn’t it tempting to cheat in a game? With no bad intentions, just to see if you can out-smart the system? It’s like you secretely discovered a way to skip the line.
That’s the feeling of a being a hacker. Of course, the true motivation for hacking is not the same for everyone. You have the criminal hackers (black hats), the ethical hackers (white hats) and the hackers
who don’t have criminal intentions but whose findings are used by others for illegal purposes (grey hats).
This last category is a tricky one. Does looking at pictures of celebrities that are illegally taken from their phones, make you sort of a grey hacker? Allthough you don’t have criminal intentions, you do support an illegal market, just by watching, after all. Stepping into this grey area is so easy, imagine how alluring it is for someone with less ethical instincts.
