Hacking Class 1 – Introduction to Hacking and Hackers

Lokesh Singh October 17, 2009 24
This is the Very First Tutorial Of Hacking . In this tutorial we will discuss what is hacking.. ethical hacking security…who are hackers…why we do hacking…and Introduction to some basic terms…
First of all I will try Explain what the Hacking really is….

What Is Hacking??

Everyone Here thinks that hacking is just stealing of data and information illegally but this perception is absolutely wrong. 
The below is definition from Wikipedia…. Itz clearly showing hacking as a negative thing…

“Hacking is unauthorized use of computer and network resources. (The term “hacker” originally meant a very gifted programmer. In recent years though, with easier access to multiple systems, it now has negative implications.)”

Hacking is not always unauthorized… Hacking also include Exploring the Things that are being Hidden from the general usage… So exploring things i.e being Hidden from general User is also hacking…

Hacking Definition by Me…
” Hacking is art of exploring the hidden things that are being hidden from general usage and finding loop holes in the security and use them to benefit the others”


WHO ARE HACKERS ??

Everybody here thinks thats hackers are criminals of the virtual world (i.e digital World ). But this thought is also wrong. Hackers are not always criminals.. It doesn’t have any doubt that Hackers are extremely genious peoples in the field of Computers…

I want to Categorize hackers in three Categories:
1. Crackers or Black Hat hackers or cheaters or simply criminals : They are called criminals because they are having the mindset of causing harm to security and they steals very useful data and use it in wrong ways. Phishers also some in this category who steals account info and steal your credit card nos. and money over the Net.

2. Ethical hackers : Ethical Hacking Means you think like Hackers. i.e First you Hack the Systems and find out the loop holes and then try to correct those Loop Holes..These type of hackers protect the cyberworld from every possible threat and fixes the future coming security loop holes. These peoples are also called as “GURU’s” of Computer Security.

3. Simply Prankers : The hackers who just do hacking for fun…play pranks to their friends..

    Hey problem is just as simple as you think.. Generally copyrighted CD have 8bit security but now a days 8+1 bit security is being provided to cd’s so that original cd’s can’t be copied or seen on pc’s..

    Secondly there can be a problem with ur lens of computer cd writes…open the computer and clean up the lens…then it would read it…
    Enjoy and hav Fun..
