 Hacking email accounts, stealing sensitive data, copying the
  address book, intercepting data, virus infections, password
  attacks, spoofed messages, abusive emails, Trojan attacks and
  espionage are only some of the many concerns that have
  started affecting email users worldwide.
 Emails are also commonly being exploited by computer
  criminals to execute privacy and identity attacks on
  unsuspecting victims.
 The terrorists involved in the recent Ahmedabad and Delhi
  blasts in 2008 had hacked into Wi-Fi systems of individuals to
  send terror mails. Such occurrences underline the need for
  ethical hackers who can safeguard the internet.
           TYPES OF HACKING
 There are two types of hacking:

                • Ethical hacking.

                • Malicious hacking.

 Malicious hacking is type of hacking in which the hackers just crash
  or smash the system by the hacking manuals or programs. They are
  called as “BLACK HAT”.



 Ethical hacking is type of hacking in which the hacker is considered
  as friend who opposes the malicious hacking. They are called as
  “WHITE HAT”.
               WHO IS ETHICAL
                HACKER???
 An Ethical Hacker should be identified as a friend.

 An Ethical Hacker is someone who hacks with legal permission
  to strengthen systems and makes them Penetration-Proof.

 They step into the minds of computer criminals to predict their
  moves and stop them before they can strike.

 “To catch a thief, think like a thief ”- That’s the basis for Ethical
  Hackers, as they have the ability to think and act like a criminal
  and can get into the mind of a criminal, outsmarting him or her
  to protect systems.
   What is Ethical Hacking???

• In Ethical Hacking, the hacker identifies the weakness in the
  system, but instead of taking advantage of the situation, alerts
  the owner, so that the later can fix the problem and make his
  system secured.



• Ethical Hackers use the same tools as hackers do, but they are
  not a threat to the system. Some people do Ethical Hacking as
  a hobby, while some pursue it as their career.
