WhiteHat Hackers

Also referred to as “ethical hackers”

A general classification for hackers that use their hacking skills for non-malicious purposes such as strengthening a security system by finding and fixing vulnerabilities. The origins of the Black Hat and White Hat labels are found in Western films, where protagonist characters would often wear white cowboy hats and antagonist characters would wear black cowboy hats.
