What is Hacking?

Updated: 2 hours ago

The term hacking has been portrayed in movies as a skill only reserved for the elite. It is actually much simpler than that

Let's start off with a basic definition of what hacking really is:

Hacking is the attempt to enter digital devices such as computers, cellphones, tablets, and even entire networks.

While hacking is not always for evil motives, most allusions to hacking and hackers nowadays depict it/them as illegal action by cybercriminals—motivated by financial gain, protest, information gathering (spying), or even just for the "joy" of the task

Who are Hackers?

Many people believe that the term "hacker" refers to a self-taught wiz kid or rogue programmer competent in modifying computer hardware or software so that it can be used in ways that the original developers did not intend. However, this is a limited perspective that does not begin to address the wide range of reasons why people turn to hacking.

I hope this gives you a quick overview into what hacking truly is and dispel your myths about how hard hacking really is. In reality, anyone can become a hacker!
