    Casual hackers are kids with just enough knowledge to get into trouble and too much time on their hands.

    Non-casual hackers fall into white-hat, grey-hat, and black-hat categories.  This kind of hacker knows enough about computer security to damage your computer or to steal your information.  White-hat hackers work for companies to help them plug holes.  Grey-hat hackers also do that, but don't necessarily work from the inside.  Black-hat hackers look for ways into your computer to steal something of value.  Whether it is your banking information or your contacts list or something else you have, if they want it they will get it.

    In a simple world, you may describe a hacker as an antisocial and introverted teenager who is just curious about things. However, there are various ways to describe a hacker in the digital world. Various things motivate an individual hacker to hack into a system, and every hacker employs his own set of

    methods and skills to do so. The common nature binding all hackers is that they are sharp-minded and curious to learn more about technology.

    There are two meanings for the term hacker.

    1. Traditionally speaking, a hacker is someone curious to learn new things and, therefore, likes to delve into the technology to know its workings. They usually like to play with computer systems

    and like to understand how things function electronically.

    2. In recent times, the term hacker has taken to a new meaning – someone who likes to execute malicious attacks on systems for personal benefits. Technically speaking, they are called crackers, which is short for criminal hackers.

    Criminal hackers break into systems for personal benefits, popularity, or even revenge. They break into a system to modify, delete, or steal information, making the lives of people miserable while doing so.
