Difference Between Hacking vs Cracking? Different Types ?


We are always confused between Hacking and Cracking, 80% of the world think that hacking and cracking both are same. But to be honest both are completely different. Once you read the entire data about hacking vs cracking you may feel that all these types you were a completely a basic person.

What is Hacking?

Hacking is a method by which user can find a weakness in the computers or any devices to exploit its weakness to gain access to a system, this method is done by a user who we call a Hacker!
A hacker finds his way to get into a system or site, by doing anything, until he finds exploits of the other side! A Hacker has More Knowledge about a Computer Security and Operating system, Try’s to gain access to a Computer security

We call these users as Hacker but these doesn’t mean that every user a Hacker, they themselves are divided into different types

Black HatHis is An Actually Dangerous Hacker, Who gain access or atleast try's his best to do and get in to any system by performing any task, penetration, testing, refreshing.. ETC
White HatHe is also a ethical hacker, by whatever he does is because he is in contract with a companies like the government themself or banks, so what ever he does is to protect his company
Grey hatA hacker who does not know what he is doing and lingers between Black hat and White hat.
BeginnerThis person is a Non-Skilled Person, who thinks he is smart by using tools which are provided from the internet and feel like he is a hacker.

So According to me, by making this simple Hacker is someone who gains access by exploiting the system and tries 100’s of times to break into a security for his benefit.


What is Cracking?

A Cracker is someone who is kind of like a Hacker, but this user try to bypass Website Password, Cracks Software License, who tries to crack this software for his own benefits or try’s this for money,  crackers destroy data, legitimate users service, or cause problems for their targets.
