About Ethical Hacking
During the 1990s, the term "hacker" originally denoted a skilled programmer proficient in machine code and computer operating systems. In particular, these individuals could always hack on an unsatisfactory system to solve problems and engage in a little software company espionage by interpreting a competitor's code.
Unfortunately, some of these hackers also became experts at accessing password-protected computers, files, and networks and came to known as "crackers." Of course, an effective and dangerous "cracker" must be a good hacker and the terms became intertwined. Hacker won out in popular use and in the media and today refers to anyone who performs some form of computer sabotage.
Why Ethical Hacking?
There is a famous quote in the hacking/cracking community. Hacking/Cracking is never achieved due to the smartness of the hacker/cracker, but it is due to the foolishness of the user.
Now as far as my thoughts go, anyone wouldn't be interested in becoming that "foolish" user including you. This is where learning about hacking helps.
