Hacking is finding out weaknesses in a computer system which can then be exploited or gaining unauthorised access to a computer system.
There are three main types of hacking ...
- White Hat Hacking – given permission to hack into systems to identify loopholes and weaknesses
- Grey Hat Hacking – hacking into systems for ‘fun’ or to ‘troll’
- Black Hat Hacking – hacking into systems with malicious intent to steal, exploit and sell data
