HACKING INTRODUCTION

Post  Admin on Sat Aug 08, 2009 12:29 pm

The good-guy (white-hat) hackers don’t like being in the same category as the bad-guy (black-hat) hackers. (These terms come from Western movies where the good guys wore white cowboy hats and the bad guys wore black cowboy hats.) Whatever the case, most people give hacker a negative connotation.

Understanding the Need to Hack Your Own Systems

To catch a thief, think like a thief.

That’s the basis for ethical hacking.
Protecting your systems from the bad guys — and not just the generic vulnerabilities that everyone knows about — is absolutely critical. When you know hacker tricks, you can see how vulnerable your systems are.

You don’t have to protect your systems from everything. You can’t. The only protection against everything is to unplug your computer systems and lock them away so no one can touch them — not even you. That’s not the best approach to information security. What’s important is to protect your systems from known vulnerabilities and common hacker attacks.
