The only classification I know of is black hat, grey hat, and white hat. Some people say the grey hat isn't even real, but I suppose it is all based on how you look at it.

Black hat: Bad boy hacker who does bad things such as stealing credit card numbers
grey hat: def 1- ex black hat, def 2- prankster hacker who hacks people for his own amusement
white hat: hackers that test out security software. They're paid by companies like Norton and McAfee to try to breach their software and report any holes.

Yeah, I'm not an expert. This is just what I've gathered from internet surfing. If you think there is a more accurate definition, you are probably right.

I think white hat hacking would be sort of a fun career choice actually. I wonder how much they get paid.

A Certified Ethical Hacker can get anywhere between $60k to $120k a year (if you work in the White House [$120k].

Saxon, you really should get a the Ethical Hacker cert, I think you'd ace it like crazy.
