    article: blackhat v whitehat

    http://www.msnbc.com/modules/hack_attack/hach.htm
    interesting somewhat lame tried to clear up the difference between a black hat and a white hat.. using the white hat as a sys admin on a honeypot and the black hat hacking it worth a look? you be the judge

    haha
    The black hat perspective sounds really script kiddie.
    I don't know how it works, but at least it'll get me a command prompt
    but..as for the white hat perspective, i think computer (L)users can learn a thing or two from it.
    script language=\"M$cript\";
    function beginError(bsod) {
    return true; }
    onLoad.windows = beginError;

    This FLASH thing is cool, but it looks like the opening to the Matrix or something.
    And the BlackHat guy looks like he's wearing tribal face-paint.
    The info is a little bit dodgy though.

    Unfortunately, it's probably an accurate description. The large majority of attacks nowadays happen when some kiddie gets a new tool that he doesn't even undersatand and just flails about wildly until he root's someone's box. Then he has a staging ground for even more attacks, except he's anonymous this time.

    This pretty much covers the only two types of hackers in the universe i suppose
