I want to post about two different types of hackers; white and black hackers.

First, black hackers are the people who you guys generally know about “hacker”.

Mostly, black hackers find the vulnerable part of the computer system and destroy the system or derive the personal information.

They hit the serious damage on people’s computer for their personal profit or just for fun.

Another name of black hacker is “Cracker“.

A cracker is the one who does cracking.

Cracking is the act of breaking into a computer system, often on a network.

A cracker can be doing this for profit, maliciously, for some altruistic purpose or cause, or because the challenge is there.

Some breaking-and-entering has been done ostensibly to point out weaknesses in a site’s security system.

There is another type of hacker which called “white hacker”.

White hackers find the vulnerable part of the system and prevent that part from the crackers.

In other words, white hacker also known as the information security professionals.

White hackers should know not only basic information technology (IT), computer operating system, and C language but also perspective on the IT industry.

They also called as “White Hat


I want to say this age is a war of information.

Crackers attack system to get information and white hat prevent us from them.


A member of white hat; Winston Smith talked how important their work is.

But still, there are so many people do not know how to prevent their computer and information from hackers.



Of course, we are not professional (or not) computer programmer or something.

But, there are some effective ways to prevent our computer from hackers.

Let’s find the ways!
