Hello, dear friends.

Hacking, the illegal use of computer technology to gain unauthorized access to data and systems, is an illegal activity in most countries of the world. Therefore, hacking for the purpose of making money or any other illegal purpose is unacceptable and punishable by law.

However, there are legitimate forms of “hacking” - for example, work in the field of information security, and I would like to highlight 5 areas of development in this area:

  1. Ethical hacking (White Hat Hacking) are information security specialists who use their knowledge and skills to test and strengthen the protection of information systems. They do this with the permission of the system owners and help prevent possible attacks.
  2. Working as a vulnerability researcher - Many companies offer bug bounties for discovering and reporting vulnerabilities in their products or systems.
  3. Consultations and security audits - specialists conduct independent analysis and assessment of the information security of organizations.
  4. Development of information security tools - creation of anti-virus and other software to protect information systems.
  5. Education and teaching in the field of information security - transfer of knowledge and skills to prepare future specialists in this field.

Thus, hacking can be a business, but only if it is carried out within the law and is constructive and not destructive. Ethical hackers and information security specialists are in demand in the job market and can make money from their skills.
