Anonymous asked: idk but I thought grey hat meant something slightly different than that? (eg doing "questionably legal" stuff for own profit, and such. not sure. idk.)
… Well, I was told grey-hats did that. Reasons probably differ, maybe get practice in before being properly malicious, maybe ‘cause they’re bored, maybe practice before doing work as a security tester but…
Essentially, I guess grey-hat hackers are anything that isn’t definitely malicious like a black-hat or definitely 100% legal AND morally all goods like the white-hats.
I am so fucking hungry right now and there’s still 25 minutes until dinner like honest to god my stomach hurts is how much I need food guys this is the downside to living at Telford food is at set times and if you only have lunch then you’re gonna be so desperate for dinner
Okay, I’m seeing a whole bunch of stuff in the homestuck tag about gigapause.
Now, I’m not on that site butI do know a little about types of hackers. White-hats are generally paid to look for security holes, black-hats hack for malicious purposes and grey-hats, they hack a site without permission to let the site owners know about the security hole.
Sometimes the site owners appreciates that someone found the security hole for them so they can fix it, other times they’ll go to the cops and try and charge the hacker. Which is kinda stupid because he/she essentially did the site owners a favour…. but then, it was without permission and has confused/upset a whole bunch of people.
