In this post I will try to clear some of your doubts about hacking in India, No Doubt there is a huge scope of ethical hacking in India, as Hollywood movies are becoming very common in India the cyber action is not far away from our country. As we are watching daily news about ransomware and cyber attacks of international cyber criminals we actually need people to tackle and in a real manner to fight with them for good.
We need people who can make other people aware of some very common practices that can help them to stay secure online and prevent their loved ones too. Here comes the role of an ethical hacker but before starting this I would like to make things clear that ethical hackers are not the attackers (although they know how to attack several websites, their real duty is to protect the system from getting hacked by finding vulnerabilities and reporting them to the developer or the authorities.
There is a huge misconception about this thing and very often an ethical hacker get demotivated if someone challenges him to hack social networking giants like Facebook and Gmail, these people don’t know the real meaning of an ethical hacker most of them are small kids and uneducated adults.
Hacking someone’s facebook account does not make you an ethical hacker and of-course it’s not that easy to hack Facebook’s system. WAIT WHAT? Yes ! Facebook is a very secure website and most of their employees are very talented, what do you think they will let you hack their system easily?
Most of the Facebook account hacking attacks are performed on the basis of the social engineering and not really by attacking Facebook’s system and I call them scammer and not hackers. They trick you to enter your details on their fake phishing websites and they steal your password from there. So you must not get into this trap.
