These type of hackers are also called “Ethical Hackers”. They don’t harm system, rather they try to find out weaknesses in a computer or a network system as tester.
Black Hat Hackers
These Hackers are “BAD” they do illegal hack harm system which includes stealing corporate data, violating privacy, damaging the system, blocking network communication.
